Summer Bird Hike with Aaron Steed
Though August is a summer month, it is the start of the fall migration for many of our local birds. Many of our summer bird residents are still around at this time of year, perhaps still singing, while certain species such as Barn Swallow and Purple Martin have largely gone. The first of many southbound songbird migrants are just beginning to trickle through. Join international bird guide, Aaron Steed, for a walk through the woodlands around FENCE and search for a variety of warblers, tanagers, sparrows and more.
