 Autumn Walk
October 20th, 9 to 11 a.m.
Fred Archibald Sanctuary
New Market

What could be better than a walk through sunny meadows on a cool, crisp autumn day? One can expect to see numerous birds on their way south for the winter, many of them feeding on the seeds of the tall warm-season grasses that fill the meadows. With luck, some hawks may be seen soaring overhead. We will make a special search for the Red-breasted Nuthatch, the Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and the Palm Warbler, all of which should be moving through now.  


Meet at 9 a.m. at the Sanctuary entrance, which is on the east side of Boyer's Mill Road just one mile north of Rte. 144 in New Market. The walk will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather. For more information, contact
