Early springtime walks through the Arb are productive for Yellow-bellied sapsuckers, White-throated sparrows, Winter wrens, Fox sparrows, Ruby- and Golden-crowned kinglets, and Brown creepers. These early birds are joined bythe first warblers -- Yellow-rumped, Pine, Palm, and Orange-crowned. Maybe a Blue-headed vireo will join them. We will wander the Arb's meandering gravel and dirt paths in search of early spring migrants. We will meet at the Riverview entrance to the Arb at 8 AM sharp. Dress appropriately for the weather including coat, gloves, scarf, hat, and sensible footwear. No strollers, dogs, or wagons please. Walk should end between 10:30 and 11 AM.

Leader: Karen Markey
