Bird Walk for late risers at Cool Spring

By Staff | Nov 18, 2016

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is sponsoring a bird walk for late risers at its new Cool Spring Nature Preserve on Saturday, Dec. 3. The walk will start at 9 a.m. and last about two-and-a-half hours. It will cover about 1.5 miles of rolling trails and be led by local birding expert Joette Borzik.

Possible species to be sighted will include wintering Sparrows, Woodpeckers, Finches, Brown Creeper, Tufted Titmouse, Nuthatch and year-round resident birds.

The event will be free and everyone will be welcome, especially beginning bird watchers.

Pre-registration will be encouraged but not required. Easy registration is available on the PVAS website at www.potomacaudubon.org.

Participants should wear sturdy footwear, dress for the prevailing weather and bring drinking water. The trip may be cancelled if weather conditions are poor.

The Cool Spring Preserve is located at 1469 Lloyd Road in Jefferson County, about six miles southwest of Charles Town.
