The May 24, 2015, Early Birders Morning Walk was another glorious day with great birders. As a special treat, a few “long-lost” Museum friends joined the walk and renewed their membership as well. And this might be our record number of species too: FORTY-TWO. Wow.
Thank you again to Mae for eBirding the results.

Join us for the next one or more, every Sunday through the end of June. You can see from our records that we have experienced birders leading the walks (and attending) but beginners are welcome!! Our trails are moderate—plus we have both an accessible treehouse and an indoor viewing window if you prefer an even more relaxed pace.
Finish the walk with bird-friendly coffee at the viewing window inside the Museum.
Bring binoculars and good walking shoes. Park at 900 Sherman Hollow Road, in the Museum parking lot.
Best for adults and older children • Free, donations welcome.
