Meet me at the Schenley Park Visitors Center (40.4383304,-79.9464765) on Sunday 28 May (the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend) for a bird and nature walk , 8:30am to 10:30am. Migration will be winding down but nesting birds will be in full swing including scarlet tanagers, rose-breasted grosbeaks, red-winged blackbirds and many robins.

As always, dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring binoculars and field guides if you have them.

If the birding is good we’ll have the option to continue until 11:00a.

    1. Oh my gosh, yes! The Komen walk used to happen on Mothers’ Day weekend so I didn’t realize it would conflict this year. It is a BIG conflict with birding because it covers the park end to end, closes roads, and has loud announcements and loud music that can be heard throughout the park. Aaarrg! I AM RESCHEDULING FOR SUNDAY MAY 28. Same time, same place.
