Fall Migration Bird Walk

Autumn has arrived and that means it is migration season, once again, for many of our raptors and songbirds. These birds have been busy nesting and raising young in our northern habitats, but as the weather cools, they must return to their wintering grounds in south and central America!


Some bird species nest even further north than Pennsylvania and you can only see them as they pass through on their migration routes. And Nolde Forest provides an important waypoint for migrating birds so we often are delighted to find many unusual species during this time. 


For this program, birders of all levels are invited to hike with park staff for an early morning bird hike. Any children attending must be able to walk up to 2 miles on their own and spend the 2hrs of the program relatively quiet while bird-watching at a relaxed pace. Bring your own binoculars if you have them, but we will have some to share as well. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to bird, strengthen you skills, or just enjoy a morning with other birders, this walk is for you!


All data collected will be submitted to the PA State Park Fall Migration Roundup – a contest between state parks to see who has the most number of species pass through during migration. Even if you don’t join our walk, you can submit your data to eBird between Sept 24 and Oct 2 to have it count to Nolde Forest!
