The May 31, 2015, Early Birders Morning Walk was chilly and rainy. Rich in color if you glanced out our Viewing Window at the azaleas. A nice treat at the end: the Lincoln Sparrow carving has been sponsored by one of our members, and dedicated to Shirley and Bob Johnson (Shirley often leads the bird walks). Today Shirley got a chance to see the plaque for the first time.
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 (thaty was quite welcome this cool morning!) at the viewing window inside the Museum. Tea too, and birders are often good bakers. Just sayin’.
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.
