It’s Spring and the High Peaks Birders are ramping for a full schedule of monthly birding strolls that should offer fun for both experienced birders and novices.
“We’re excited to have the High Peaks Birders heading out into the field again,” said High Peaks President Dennis Smith. “Whether you’ve been birding for years or simply want to learn more, the group has something to offer.”
The group typically schedules one birding stroll per month during the warmer months, usually in spots that offer high bird activity without a tough hike in. The outings are free and open to the public. Experienced birders will help novices in spotting the creatures, and usually have some educational insights to impart.
Announcements about the time and location of the birding strolls will be included in a “Bird of the Month” feature story that the group will submit to local news outlets, starting next week. The stories will highlight some of our region’s most interesting bird species, hopefully setting the tone for the strolls in the field to follow.
“We are blessed with an abundance of gorgeous natural surroundings that host a wide array of bird species,” Smith said. “We hope more folks will come out and join the High Peaks Birders.”
