Bird Walk June 4 at Cane River Park

Attention bird lovers: join the High Peaks Birders for a fun morning bird stroll at Cane River Park, 258 Whittington Road, Burnsville!

The public is invited to observe migrating and nesting birds at Cane River Park on Saturday morning, June 4, at 7:00. Migration is nearing its end and many birds are nesting in the area. A variety of species should be singing and using the river and small wetlands, trees along the river levee, brushy areas, and ball field of the park. Beginning birders are welcome. We plan to stay as long as we want, and you may come and go as you wish.

During the stroll, we request that you have a mask at the ready and wear it either full time, or when you get close to one or more people to get a better view of a bird. We are not asking people to reveal vaccination status, but we still all need to remember that we could be asymptomatically infected, and thus could easily transmit the new, more transmissible COVID variants.

We will meet in the large lot near the outbuildings behind the baseball field. Please check the High Peaks website, www.nchighpeaks.org, or Facebook page for last-minute changes due to weather. You may also contact the Walk Leader, Russ Oates, at rmoates54@gmail.com if you have questions.

We hope to see you at Cane River Park!
