Spring Birding Extravaganza 5.9.24.jpg

May is a perfect month to welcome back migrating birds and celebrate our resident feathered gems as the avian world becomes alive with song and brightly colored birds, all focused on creating and rearing the next generation!

Fascinating behaviors and adaptations add to the enchantment of birding in May.

Join Kelly Dwyer on May 9 at 9-10 am or 10:15 to 11:15 am as we explore the beautiful and level trails adjacent to cascading streams in Merrimack’s Twin Bridges Park (485 Daniel Webster Highway). A perfect opportunity for all levels of bird enthusiasts!

Along our walk, we will also discuss and examine:

· Ground-breaking new research behind bird behavior and communication.

· Territory establishment, mate selection and nesting strategies.

· Tips and techniques to identify birds through field marks, song and habitat location.

· Other elements of nature we come across on our walk!
