Event description:

Join ASA and local wildlife ecologist and artist Steve Sanford for a bird walk at the conserved White Oak Farm in Buskirk. The walk is for beginner and expert birders alike. We will begin at 5:00 AM and walk through farm fields and woods to a large beaver pond.

BobolinkSteve will arrive at 4:15 - so anyone wanting to hear owls or other early sounds can assemble earlier. We expect to see and hear scores of breeding birds - including Meadowlarks and Bobolinks - and some of the later migrants. No special footwear is necessary but participants should bring binoculars and shoes or boots that could stand some morning dew.

We will meet at a parking spot on Eddy Road and walk, watch and listen for about 2 hours. Group size is limited to 20 people – so please register in advance. In the event of heavy rains on the 7th, the walk will be convened the following morning, on June 8.
