Moderate: Explore sunrise birding! An excellent opportunity to watch, listen and learn about our migrant species. This early morning walk is an excellent introduction to the birds of the region.
The early hours of the day are perfect for practicing birding by ear. Not only are birds actively singing near sunrise, but they often do so from exposed, visible perches, offering exceptional views and photography opportunities in the exceptional morning light. Because the chorus is most prevalent in spring, many of the singers are also in their bright breeding plumage, making identification even easier. Getting up to enjoy the dawn chorus can be an experience many birders eagerly anticipate. Target birds: Lazuli Bunting, MacGillivary’s Warbler, Yellow-breasted Chat, Common Yellowthroat, Black-headed Grosbeak, and many more. Bird friendly coffee and light continental breakfast items will be made available. Please bring your own cup, water and a snack for the walk. This walk is rated moderate due to unleveled terrain and proximity to falls.
