Join us for a bird walk to see a variety of waterfowl and early spring migrants. With the variety of habitats at the Old Cedar Avenue Bridge it makes it possible to observe a remarkable variety of waterfowl, raptors, warblers and sparrows as they migrate North in the spring. You will learn about some of the species that migrate to and through the Refuge and with luck we will be able to observe a wide variety of these birds. Birders of all skill levels are welcome on these walks. Bring along your binoculars, favorite field guide and dress appropriately for the weather.
