A special tour of the Audubon BirdLoop designed for families with children and led by field guide author and professional guide Brian Bell.
Learn to spot the bright yellow American Goldfinch by listening for its “potato chip” call. Walk an easy path through a summer meadow as swallows swoop over grasses higher than your head. Search in the Mysterious Thicket for plentiful Cedar Waxwings and the flashy Rufous Hummingbird. Then expect a scolding from a Marsh Wren while you look on the lake for ducklings and watch for eagles soaring overhead.
Dress for the weather and bring water; binoculars and field guide if you have them. Portable rest rooms available. Free. No pre-registration required. Park in Lot G ($1 fee) and meet at the BirdLoop kiosk just off the parking lot.
