Birders, bird lovers and Nature enthusiasts, we cannot deny the warming rays of the sun in February and March. These days, revealing the oncoming rejuvenation of spring, are highlighted by the first singing northern cardinals, the whistling songs of tufted titmice, and black-capped chickadees. Soon we will be serenaded by the familiar “kon-ka-ree” of the first returning red-winged blackbirds. Longer days, (photoperiod) stimulate avian hormones, which in turn evoke migration, singing, courting, scouting for nest sites and overall, an increase in activity.
Let’s move through the end of winter and into spring with a series of birding walks at the Bell’s Neck Conservation Lands. We’ll enjoy scenic views of the Herring River, marshes, and woodlands while watching for late winter visitors like songbirds, hawks, and maybe even an eagle. Learn about the unique adaptations, life history and habits of each bird species we encounter. Join Peter Trull each Tuesday at 8:00 a.m. for an exciting immersion into the world of birds. Get excited, get sharp! All birding interest and experience levels welcome.
