Kensington Birdwatching for Beginners

Meet at the Nature Center parking area at 10 AM for a trip around the trails. Bring a pocketful of sunflower seeds to hand-feed the chickadees and titmice. View migrating waterfowl and the Great Blue Heron rookery. We hope to see the Sandhill Cranes that reside there, as well as Red-winged Blackbirds and other early migrants. This field trip is a fun way to bring young birders and novice adults into the birding community. It is suitable for all ages. Young children should be accompanied by an adult. Older minors can bring a completed release form found on the website. Plan to be done by noon. This trip is free of charge, but a MetroParks Pass is required for admission to the park.

Leader: Bryn Martin
