Birdsong at North Beach 

Redwing BlackbirdJoin the Natural History Society on Saturday morning, April 13, for a bird walk focusing on birdsong. Expert naturalists Ken Wilson and Dave Rugh will lead an exhilarating outing teaching us to recognize some of our common birds by their songs. They will share insights on the functions and ecology of birdsong, and enhance our listening skills and appreciation of beautiful spring mornings. 

White-crowned SparrowWe will walk through the North Beach neighborhood, mostly on level ground with some small hills. Be prepared for any weather by dressing in layers, and bring binoculars and a field guide, if you have one. Please RSVP to Nan at JLTnatural@saveland.org for details and to find out time and meeting location.
