Annual Spring Bird Walk at Salt Springs Park
Meet at Wheaton House Main Parking area
Come and celebrate the arrival of spring in color and song! The walk will be led by Evan Mann, a local resident, avid birder, and past president of the Pennsylvania Society for Ornithology. He has spent countless hours birding this park; with its variety of natural habitats, Salt Springs Park is an ideal place for these observations.
You’ll search the campground and ravine for SSP’s “signature” species, Louisiana waterthrush and winter wren. You will visit the garden meadow for bluebirds, listen along the upper fields for bobolink and meadowlarks. The upper gorge will yield multiple warbler and thrush species, and the early successional fields of the Friends land will add another suite of birds to your list.
Expect to see and hear up to sixty different kinds of birds over the course of this spring morning. The walk will begin at the main visitor parking area at 8 am and will conclude late morning. Join them for all or part of the walk. Good walking shoes and binoculars are recommended.
