Bring your binoculars and field guides. Support will be offered for beginning birders. More than 75 species of birds have been sited on River Walk, including bald eagle, great blue heron, kingfisher, and flocks of cedar waxwing. Learn about techniques and tools to help you enjoy the many birds of Berkshire county.

Meet at the Upper River Walk entrance located in the St. Peter’s Church parking lot on Dresser Avenue.

The Housatonic River corridor is an important landmark for our migrating warblers, the river is essential to nesting waterfowl, and the river banks offer important habitat to our woodland nesting bird species. River Walk provides the perfect opportunities for birding all these areas. Come join us as we observe and record River Walk avian sightings for spring 2017. Birders of all levels encouraged!
We will be using resources provided by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology for identification and recording. We will participate in a world-wide citizen science effort that supports our understanding of our changing climate.

River Walk is a registered eBird hotspot in Berkshire County. Let’s all join the e-Bird movement, record our sightings, and make it official!
