Join park naturalist, Rob Bergstresser, as we learn to identify and locate the common breeding birds of Beltzville State Park, by their songs and calls. We’ll head out on an easy-to-moderately difficult 2-mile hike on the beautiful Sawmill Trail, where participants will learn the common methods, tips, and tricks for identifying the most common birds by ear, and understand why it can be challenging, but a lot of fun. Please wear sturdy walking/hiking shoes. Participants should bring water, and insect repellent if needed. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own binoculars, but a very limited amount are available for loan during the program.
We will be meeting at the Sawmill Run Trailhead off of Old Mill Road.
Directions from Beltzville State Park:
Turn left out Park main entrance. Proceed past Army Corps of Engineers building & go approximately 1 mile. Look for a Big Creek Grange sign on left. Turn LEFT onto Grange Road.
