Connecticut Warbler by Declan O’Neil

Explore the exquisite Brandywine Valley tract of First State National Historical Park in search of some delightfully confusing fall warblers and sparrows. As the morning sun first hits the trees, we’ll take a slow stroll along the creekside trail to see which birds appear. In addition to the usual suspects, specialty targets seen in past seasons include Lincoln’s Sparrow and Connecticut Warbler.

The main trip will wrap up between 10 and 11, but feel free to pack a lunch and join Declan for some post-trip hawkwatching atop the hill. 

Please note that this walk involves a small, but potentially muddy stream crossing, so dress appropriately.

Meet in the parking lot on Ramsey Road across from Ramsey’s Farm. There is overflow parking (if necessary) in the lot down the road on Brandywine Creek Road.

Contact Declan at [email protected] if you have any questions about this trip.
