Birding Focus: Come celebrate the Great Backyard Bird Count at the Elachee Nature Science Center's Chicopee Lake, a favorite site for birders. We expect to see waterfowl, including Mallards, American Black Ducks, Gadwall, Hooded Merganser, Wood Ducks; wading birds; wetland birds; winter visitors; and resident birds, including sparrows, woodpeckers, Hermit Thrushes, kinglets, and Yellow-rumped Warblers. This walk is open to birders of all abilities; families with children 10 and older are welcome. No dogs or strollers are allowed. Wear hiking shoes and dress for the weather. Elachee Nature Science Center will provide one scope and some binoculars. Participants are invited to bring additional scopes and binoculars. We hope to have restrooms available.
