Midwinter Bird Walk – Wednesday, January 17th

Posted · Add Comment

Come out and get to know some of the birds that are at home in the woods & fields during winter!

Meet Sally O’Byrne at the Blue Ball Barn, near traffic circle on Rte. 141 at 8:30am.

A note from Sally (on 1/15/18):

Snow may be falling Tuesday night, but at present I plan to lead the Wednesday morning Alapocas walk. A fresh snow will be a great background for birding in the mature woodlands and along the Brandywine. We will meet at Blue Ball Barn at 8:30 – please dress for the weather. The hike is about 3 miles and will last about 3 hours. Last year we had several fly-bys of a Raven, but since the Bancroft Mills have been removed, I’m not hopeful for the Raven this year, but we will look for another rarity. However, we will see a variety of woodpeckers and we can look and listen for birds that are commonly found in Northern Delaware in Winter.

If you have never been to Alapocas Woods, you will be surprised by this woodland gem in the midst of suburbia and Wilmington.
