Participants will tour portions of the state forest in search of notable resident species. These include Red-shouldered & Broad-winged Hawks, Pileated Woodpecker, Acadian, Alder and Willow Flycatchers, 10-15 warbler species including Mourning, Canada, Hooded, Pine and Cerulean Warblers, as well as Grasshopper, Henslow’s and Clay-colored Sparrows. Occasionally we encounter late migrants such as Olive-side and Yellow-bellied Flycatchers too. Please note that there is a state park entrance fee. Bring good walking shoes, because there will quite a little hiking, though leisurely. Most trails are well groomed.
