NATIONAL WINTER TRAILS DAY: WINTER BIRDS AND TRACKS IN OWEN SOWERWINE NATURAL
Join FAS Conservation Educator and long -time teaching naturalist Denny Olson on a winter hike of all the OSNA trails. Winter birds, bird songs, tracking, botanizing, and seat-of-the-pants interpretation will be the unstructured itinerary. This is one of the best spots in the area to see Pileated and other woodpeckers, many kinds of chickadees, Bohemian and Cedar waxwings in flocks of thousands, Pine Grosbeaks, Townsend's Solitaires and there's always an unexpected bird. Not just ID, but lots of natural history lore, which is Denny's trademark. Dress warm, bring binoculars and snow boots, and check with us on the need for snowshoes if the snow is deep. We have binoculars and field guides if you need them. Meet at the ONSA Treasure Lane entrance gate (at the end of Treasure Lane off Willow Glen).
