Forest Birds of the Palisades w/ Ben Leffew & Michael Patton

May 7 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

$15.00

Hike Leaders: Ben Leffew, Preserve Manager at Shaker Village; Michael Patton, Avian Biologist at Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources

Kentucky birders Ben Leffew (Shaker Village) and Michael Patton (KY Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources) will lead this hike featuring the diversity of birds that use the forests of the Kentucky River Palisades. Ben and Michael will teach participants to identify birds by sight, sound, behavior, and habitat. This program takes place during peak migration and will prepare participants who may be interested in Global Big Day and other community science birding programs.

For this program, we are partnering with Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill to highlight birds of the Kentucky River Palisades region. Join us directly after this hike for an afternoon program at Shaker Village that will feature Grassland Birds of the Kentucky River Palisades. Registration for the afternoon hike must go through Shaker Village. Register here for the Shaker Village program here: https://shakervillageky.org/events/birds-of-the-palisades/
