Bird Walk for Beginners (& History Buffs)

Mar 21st 20208am - 10amOrrville

POWs at Cahawba swore that the end of the Civil War was foretold by a dove that appeared in the prison. Maybe birds should be watched! Grab your binoculars and bird guide, and learn the basics of bird identification from an experienced birder on this easy two-hour walk through historic Old Cahawba. Knowledgeable birders will guide you through the identification of the birds that abound at this time of year. A wide variety ranging from the “large” (like Bald Eagles and Turkey Vultures) to Barred Owls, Brown Thrashers and Hermit Thrushes on down to White-throated Sparrows, Carolina Wrens & Chipping Sparrows may be seen. So mark your calendars and plan on joining us for a morning of bird watching at Alabama’s first state capital.
