West Fairmount Park Bird Walk

Please join us for a bird walk at one of Philly’s lesser known or maybe even better – unknown – birding locations. West Fairmount Park is huge but we will only focus on the middle section along the more or less newly established Trolley Trail and its side trails. June is the prime month for breeding birds, which include birds like Common Yellowthroats and Yellow Warbler, vireos, orioles, Wood Thrushes, oodles of Catbirds and if we are lucky Scarlet Tanagers.

The main goal of this trip will be to show birders the beauty of the park and hopefully encourage them to come back. If people are interested we can also show folks how to properly utilize breeding codes on the ebird mobile app because we are bound to see some fledglings and other evidence of breeding. Birding by ear is important this time of the year so if you want to learn more please do join.

Check out that list from June last year: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S46594274 No worries, we won’t walk for 6 miles. Let’s meet at the parking lot next to the Car Barn building (39.989201, -75.209724). The walk will include some up- and downhills. No ticks! After the walk I would like to check on a Green Heron nest at Concourse Lake. Everyone is welcome to join.
