Update, Tuesday, November 8: Both bird walks are now full and reservations are no longer being taken.

 


 

The Friends of Green Lake is offering two Green Lake bird walks with Audubon Society Master Birder Martin Muller this fall.

The walks will be on Saturday, November 12, 2011 and Saturday, November 19, 2011, 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.

The four-hour tours of Green Lake Park will cover migrants as well as local birds, including waterfowl and shorebirds. Beginners and advanced birders of all ages are welcome. Dogs, however, should stay home.

The group will walk slowly and will practice being quiet so that they can hear the birds before the birds hear the group.

Participants should wear three or four layers, including a water-repellent or waterproof outer layer if there is rain in the forecast. Field guides, binoculars and scopes are also helpful.
