Audubon Walks

One half hour after sunrise on the first Sunday of each month, members of the Audubon Society lead free bird watching walks in the park. Meet at Shelter 1 and bring your binoculars, if you have some. Please dress for the weather.

Location: Bryan Park

Observation date: 12/5/10

Notes: The Bald Eagle flew north from a white oak less than 50 feet away at the beginning of the walk. About 20 minutes later, the bird attempted to return to its original perch but continued south after spotting the birders. Ten minutes later it flew north over the group again.
