Forsyth Audubon Bird Walks

Sunday, March 269 to 10:30 a.m.

Creeks are wonderful places to watch birds drinking water, foraging on creek-side vegetation, or bathing. An experienced birder from Forsyth Audubon will lead a slow walk along the creek. No birding experience necessary - this walk is perfect for anyone who is interested in birds. Families and young children who like birds are welcome. Bring binoculars, if you have them, but we also have a couple pairs that are just the right size for young naturalists. Spring is migration season as well as breeding season for our year-round birds, so we're likely to see a variety of birds, as well as wrens, kingfishers, sparrows, herons, and hawks.

Three simultaneous bird walks led by Forsyth Audubon members:

  • Muddy Creek Greenway – led by Nathan Gatto, owner of Wright's Backyard Birding Center.  Meet at 9 a.m. at the parking lot for the new park off Meadowlark Drive, next to Meadowlark Middle School.
  • Civitan Park/Salem Creek Greenway – led by Rob Rogers, instructor of Beginning Bird Watching at Forsyth Technical Community College. Meet at 9 a.m. at WSSU's Anderson Center parking lot by the footbridge.
  • Bethabara Lower Trail – led by Bill Gifford, a past member of the Forsyth Audubon board. Meet at 9 a.m. at the gravel parking area near the Bethabara Park Visitor's Center, 2147 Bethabara Road, Winston-Salem.
