Calling All Bird Watchers: Thousand Island Land Trust to Host Two-Part Observation Hike | WWTI
CLAYTON, NY (WWTI) – Bird watchers unite!
The Thousand Islands Land Trust is taking bird watchers “under its wing” on a two-part birding trek starting this week.
According to TILT, the trek is aimed at beginner and novice bird watchers, but will also provide insight for those looking to learn from local enthusiasts or those hoping to boost their identification skills.
The first part of the trek, the eBird virtual training, will take place on Thursday, May 13 at 5.30 p.m. The training will help show how to use the eBird app on a smart device to record birding data.
Then, on Saturday May 15, participants will turn to the sky, trees, or the ground and meet at Otter Creek Preserve and Nature Trail for TILT’s Warbler Walk. Participants will walk the trail, which is claimed to be an ideal habitat for bush birds, while learning identification tips.
The walk will begin at 7 a.m. and participants are encouraged to bring a pair of binoculars if they have them.
Interested participants are requested to pre-register for each half of the trek by emailing [email protected], calling the TILT office at 315-686-5345 or registering on the website of TILT. Space is limited.
