Holly Merker will lead us on this morning walk to identify the birds that are entertaining us with their songs. Bring your binoculars to see the birds up close and learn about their habits. We’ll be on the watch for song birds, ducks and geese, and maybe even some hawks, osprey and eagles! You just never know what you will see at Shaw’s Bridge Park! Walking will be easy on natural surface/stone paths, but walking shoes or boots are recommended as it can be wet.
