Bergen County Audubon led Bird Walks at Teaneck Creek Conservancy @ Teaneck Creek Conservancy
Mar 15 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am

The Teaneck Creek Conservancy and Bergen County Audubon Society have partnered for a series of Bird Walk and Talk field trips. These walks will be part lesson, and part hike in the forested freshwater wetlands of Teaneck Creek Park – a premium rest stop in the eastern flyway for migrating birds. Bird watching is an easy, fun, and uncomplicated way to spend quality time outdoors. With little or no equipment you can learn to identify by eight and sound the birds that live in your neighborhood. Learn about bird behaviors and gain an appreciation for the habitats we share.

The walks will take place from on the first Tuesday and third Sunday of each month. They begin at 9:30 A.M.. A short class with an introduction to bird identification, use of binoculars and field guides will be held before the walk on Oct. 5. All walks are open to the public. Bring binoculars if you have them. Call Don Torino for more information at 201-636-4022
