Trip Leader: Holger Pflicke

Free to all members and non-members

Glen Foerd mansion sits along the Delaware River in the northeastern-most corner of Philly and is one of the best places in the city to study gulls during the winter. While there is no guarantee, we are hoping to see a rare gull such as Iceland or Glaucous Gull. There should also be a good amount of waterfowl out on the river and we can discuss how to distinguish Double-crested Cormorants from the Great Cormorants that visit the area in winter.

We plan this as a stationary event overlooking the river, but if folks want, we can also explore the parkland surrounding the mansion.
Please dress according to the expected weather.

We will meet at 10.30 am at the flagpole along the river. Folks can join at any point during the event. There is limited parking on-site and along the surrounding roads so please share a ride if you can. The location is also reachable by bus lines 19 and 84. The Torresdale regional rail station is a 15 min walk away.

No binoculars? No worries! Birding backpacks with binoculars and field guides are now back on loan at the following local Philly libraries: Andorra, Cobbs Creek, Cecil B. Morre, Falls of Schuylkill, Frankford, Greater Olney, Logan, Richmond, South Philly, Torresdale, and Widener.

Join BirdPhilly and Philly Queers Birders as we check out Philadelphia’s winter bird residents at the Navy Yard! We’ll meet up at the intersection of South 13th Street and Admiral Peary Way to find the ducks that hang out on the Delaware River, and to see who else is around. We’ll keep and eye out for for Cormorants, Gulls, Raptors Woodpeckers, Sparrows, and other winter birds! No registration is required and plenty of binoculars to share.

The Navy Yard Riverfront Trail is a wide, flat, paved path with benches along the way and we’ll move at a leisurely pace with frequent stops to scan the river. Since it’s a winter morning and on the water, it will probably be colder and windier than in other parts of the city so dress accordingly. There is free parking on 13th, 11th and along Admiral Peary Way. Please do not park in the private lots as you could be towed. The 17 bus also extends to the Navy Yard on the weekends.
Note there are no bathrooms along the route, but there is a Courtyard Hotel nearby.

Thursday Mornings meet Martin Selzer to explore the wooded trails, meadows, and farm fields of Harriet Wetherill Park in, Montgomery County. For those unfamiliar with the park, there is series of grass, dirt, and paved walking paths that we will be birding. Besides resident and migrating passerines, we will have ample opportunities to view other migrating species during the walk. The park is nearby both Dixon Meadow and the Wissahickon Waterfowl Preserve, so stops there afterwards can be combined with the walk.
