Are you curious about birds but not sure how to get started? Geared specifically towards people who are brand new to birding or venturing out for one of the first times, this field trip is for you! Together, look and listen for birds, focusing on tips for identification.

Meet at Nine Springs parking lot (43°01’52.0″N 89°20’56.3″W) and meander around the ponds together. The official end time is 7 pm, though the trip leader will be available for a short while afterward to venture onto the E-Way boardwalk.

Bring a water bottle to stay hydrated; feel free to bring a camera, binoculars, and/or field guide. Trails may be muddy or wet, so wear appropriate shoes. Binoculars will be available to borrow, if you’d like.

If you wish to use any app-based identification tools (Merlin is a great option), please download and sign up ahead of time. The field trip leader will keep a checklist of all identified birds in the eBird app and will share the list afterward.


APPROXIMATE DISTANCE FOR WALKING: 1-3 miles, but can be adjusted based on participants’ needs and desires

RSVP REQUIRED. Participation is limited to 12 people.

A male and female duck floating in water and eating.
