Birding Adventures: An Introduction to Bird Watching

The Friends of Tryon Creek State Natural Area are hosting guest speaker, and Wetlands Education Specialist, Sarah Pinnock (from Jackson Bottom Wetlands) on Tuesday, May 3rd from 6pm-8:30pm! This will be a great chance for those of you that are relatively new to birding to come out and be part of a discussion on an introduction to birdwatching. It will also be an opportunity for experienced birders to get a little refresher course (those never hurt) and to meet some folks that are new to the birding community. This event is completely free to attend!

Free wine, beer, and other refreshments will be served (what is it about birders and their wine?)! It will be a fun and relaxed evening for all and a great learning experience for birders of all levels. You can read more about it here!

Tryon Creek Park is a hub of activity for a number of resident and migratory birds. With spring just around the corner, the park should be full of activity. If you have never been to the park, you should definitely schedule a day to visit!

Friends of Tryon Creek also have quite a few other birding-related events coming up in May. Here are some of the other events you can check out:

Workshop: Beginner Birding – April 28 (6 – 7:30 p.m.) and May 1 (8 – 11 a.m.). Cost is $6 ($5 for members)

Morning Bird Walk – May 2, 9 & 16, 7 – 9 a.m. Free.

International Migratory Bird Event: Go Wild! Go Birding! – May 14, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Free.

Family Event: A Celebration of Woodpeckers – May 15, 2 – 4 p.m. Free.

Take care, good birding, and we hope to see you there!
