Birding for Beginners

October 7, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for a Tree Week Birding for Beginners walk and sit. This program is for those ages 9 and up.

If you’ve ever thought birdwatching would be fun or interesting but didn’t know how to start come join us for a Birding for Beginners walk and sit. We’ll discuss the use of binoculars (we have nice ones you can use for the day); what to look for when you see a bird; discuss some free apps that help you figure out what you are seeing and we’ll go see some birds! The bird walk through the field and forest will be slow and relaxing, and we’ll end with watching some feeders for our most common feeder birds.

This program is for beginner birders ages 9 and up. Young birders are especially encouraged to join. If you are an intermediate birder who is interested in birding programs at Floracliff, email us about our monthly first Friday bird walks at

Program Leader: Dan Patrick, Floracliff Volunteer
