Join Pickering Creek Audubon Center for an incredible field trip to Chestertown to visit Foreman’s Branch Bird Observatory and witness bird banding up close! Listen for the distinctive bob…white! song while visiting restored grasslands to hear about recovering quail and sparrows. Learn directly from skilled field ecologists as they measure and band migratory and local birds in the middle of the spring season. Get an up-close look at warblers, vireos, thrushes and more and hear how the data collected at Foreman’s Branch tells a story about bird patterns, health and future.


Space is limited to 11 participants, please register in advance. Meet at Pickering Creek at 6:30AM before departing in the Pickering Creek van. Some snacks will be provided. The van will return to Pickering Creek by noon.
