Early Evening Birding at the Arboretum
Ruth Pfeffer - Expert Birder and Trip Leader

Early evening is a great time to see birds, when most visitors have left for the day and quiet descends on the Arboretum. Birders at any level of experience are welcome. We will visit a variety of habitats that attract birds including the wetlands, meadows, and woodlands. We will also bird watch in the Arboretum’s tree canopy, Out on a Limb. We hope to see birds like bluebirds, tree swallows, and eastern kingbirds. We will also observe migratory song birds such as warblers and sparrows and may see shorebirds that often visit the wetlands at this time of year. Ruth will provide a spotting scope and field guides. Bring binoculars. Park in the meadow next to the entrance kiosk.

Birding at Morris Arboretum in Memory of Lehman Kapp
On Thursday, June 8 at 9:30 a.m. we will meet at the Morris Arboretum for a bird walk in memory of our friend and fellow birder, Lehman Kapp who passed away in late 2015. Lehman was a regular on Morris Arboretum birding trips and attended many Arboretum classes. Ruth Pfeffer, a dedicated friend of Kapp's and expert birder, will lead the walk. Following the walk, there will be light refreshments in the Horticulture Center across the street at Bloomfield Farm. Ruth will have loaner binoculars in case you need a pair. There is no charge for the walk, but to keep track of the number of people attending, please register on-line or call 215-247-5777, ext. 125.

There is often dew in the wetland, so please wear shoes that can get wet, preferably with closed toes. You may want to bring sunscreen and a cap. Bring your binoculars.
