Hot weather returns tomorrow so next Sunday’s outing is aimed for the shade along Nine Mile Run. We’ll finish on time or earlier, before it gets too hot.

Join me for a bird & nature walk in Frick Park starting at Commercial Street on Sunday, June 26, 8:30a – 10:30a.

Meet at the Nine Mile Run Trail Parking lot (40.42427, -79.90482) to walk Frick Park’s boardwalk and Nine Mile Run Trail.

We’ll identify this “something like a sunflower” (photo at top) and we’ll see baby birds. I’m hoping for an orchard oriole (Icterus spurius).

Dress for hot weather with a sun hat and comfortable walking shoes. Bring water(*) and binoculars.

Before you come, visit my Events page in case of changes or cancellations. The outing will be canceled if there’s lightning or heavy rain.

Hope to see you there.

(*) Tip on bringing water: When I know it’ll be hot I freeze a not-quite-full water bottle overnight. The ice melts as I’m walking and the water is always cold. The only downside is that condensation makes the bottle wet my backpack.

  1. I shove my frozen water bottle in a tube sock if I don’t have one of my knitted covers with me. Wool socks insulate best!
