Bird Walk at Gilbert’s Corner Regional Park
November 18 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy will be partnering with NOVA Parks Roving Naturalist Matt Felperin and Audubon Society of Northern Virginia for a casual and educational bird walk at Gilbert’s Corner Regional Park in Aldie (see map below). Learn more about this under-birded mixed forest and meadow habitat park that hosts a diverse range of resident and migratory bird species, including breeding Prairie Warblers in the spring and summer. For this walk, we can expect to spot a variety of forest birds such as Hermit Thrush, kinglets, woodpeckers, wrens, and towhees in addition to raptors and meadow birds such as the Red-tailed Hawk, Eastern Bluebird, and Field Sparrow.
November signals the end of fall migration, but is a great time to find rare and infrequent species. Expect to walk no more than two miles on relatively flat grassy paths as we comb through the park in search of as many species as we can find. All ages and skill levels are encouraged to join us, and those with younger children can feel free to peel off early if needed. We will meet in the parking lot and have a brief introduction before hitting the trail. Bringing your own binoculars is encouraged, but we will have limited pairs available to borrow on a first-come first-served basis.
