Independence Hall (Dock Creek Bridge)
Center City East, Philadelphia, 19106

Event Type

Join BirdPhilly.org for a leisurely stroll of the BirdPlace of the Nation, as we enjoy the birdlife present in the greenspaces around Independence Hall. October is an excellent month for bird migration (arguably the best) and the green areas in this area can serve as important resting places for migrant birds. We’ll see what we can over the course of about an hour here.

We’ll meet at the small bridge over what used to be Dock Creek behind Carpenter’s Hall (GPS: 39.947827, -75.147019) and gradually work our way up to the Commodore Barry statue.

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.
