11 a.m. Green-Wood’s Great Birds: Birdwatching Walking Tour

May 20, 2012, 11:00am1:00pm

Enjoy a lovely spring day birdwatching with Green-Wood tour guide Marge Raymond. Many birds migrate through Green-Wood on their long journey from as far as South America to their breeding grounds in Canada. Raymond has been birding in Green-Wood for 30 years and will take you to the best hot spots.

Birds that may be spotted include Yellow and Black-throated Blue Warbler, Scarlet and Summer Tanager, Baltimore Oriole, American Redstart and Great Egret, as well as Green-Wood’s resident Red-tailed Hawks and Monk Parakeets.

Along the way, enjoy Green-Wood’s magnificent spring blooms and Raymond’s fascinating stories about our famous permanent residents. Wear good walking shoes; bring your binoculars and cameras. You don’t have to be a birdwatcher to enjoy this tour — it’ s for everyone!

Tickets are $10 for members of the Green-Wood Historic Fund and $15 for non-members. Reservations recommended.
