Bird Walks

Sarah and Nathan lead a free bird walk the last Saturday of every month (except December). The locations are determined based on time of year. Nathan also organizes all of the Forsyth Audubon Bird Walks, so if you would like to also join us on the Audubon walks each month here is a list of those dates:

July Bird Walks:

July 13th: Audubon Walk @ Civitan Park @ 8 a.m.

July 20th: Wright’s Walk @ Tanglewood Park @ 8 a.m.

July 29th: Audubon Walk @ Washington Park @ 8 a.m.

June Bird Walk at Muddy Creek Greenway

We had a great bird walk on June 29th at Muddy Creek Greenway. We were able to find both of our target species, Yellow-breasted Chat and Common Yellowthroat! Other highlights included Red-tailed Hawks, Green Heron, Indigo Bunting and a pair of Cedar Waxwings.

April Bird Walk at Reynolda

We had a good walk at Reynolda on April 20th, it was a little windy which made it hard to see some of the warblers, but we did have great looks at a Red-shouldered Hawk!

March Bird Walk at Tanglewood Park

We had a great bird walk on March 16th at Tanglewood Park! Nathan and 25 other birders trudged their way through the muddy and wet trails, but were rewarded with amazing looks at a Great-horned Owl, Bald Eagles, Osprey and mating Red-shouldered Hawks! They even heard an Eastern Screech Owl!! They ended the walk with a total of 57 species, not a bad day! I have included a link to our eBird checklist below!

September Bird Walk at Reynolda

Nathan and about 19 other birders had a nice bird walk at Reynolda on Saturday, September 29th. We had about 9 different species of warblers and a Summer Tanager (pictured below).

As some of you may know, we are expecting a little girl on October 22nd, so it is likely we will not be able to lead a bird walk on October 27th!

There will be an Audubon Walk on October 13th, which is also the day of the “Big Sit” (both at Reynolda) and there will be a Monday Audubon Walk on the 29th at Quarry Park.

August Bird Walk at Tanglewood Park

We had a great bird walk this morning at Tanglewood Park. We had around 22 people on the walk and 43 species, some of the highlights included great looks at a Barred Owl, White-eyed Vireo and a Hairy Woodpecker!
I have included a link to the entire checklist, thanks to everyone that came out this morning, we look forward to seeing everyone on the next walk on September 29th!
