Bird Walk: Great Backyard Bird Count at Ruffner Mountain
February 19, 2017, 8:00 am–11:00 amFree
Join Outreach Director Ansel Payne for a morning bird walk on Ruffner Mountain! Together, we’ll look for common (and uncommon) winter birds, talk about best practices for woodland birding, and generate important citizen-science data for the 2017 Great Backyard Bird Count. Bring a coat, some water, and a sense of adventure as we explore this cherished Birmingham green space. No experience necessary!
Meetup is at 8 a.m. in the main Ruffner parking lot (33.55848, -86.70746). Please bring binoculars if you have them, although we will have several extra pairs on hand. And we’re not kidding about the coats—last year’s walk was super cold!
