Houston Meadows: A Unique Bird Habitat (June 6, 8-11am)
Keith Russell
Audubon Urban Important Bird Area Coordinator

According to Keith Russell, "It is hard to believe that you are in the city in Houston Meadows!" We will spend the morning exploring and discovering the Meadow's breeding bird species such as field sparrows, orchard orioles, eastern bluebirds, and perhaps rarities such as blue grosbeak or yellow-breasted chat. Houston Meadows, which is very close to the Arboretum in the Wissahickon section of Fairmount Park, is a unique open meadow. This type of habitat is rapidly disappearing in urban areas and it is great to have it nearby. Thanks to Keith, funding was secured for this important grassland where birds and native plants are now abundant. We will meet at the Houston Meadows playground. Bring binoculars. Meet at the Houston Playground.

Directions to Houston Playground: From the Arboretum, turn left onto Northwestern Avenue to Germantown Avenue; turn left and go ½ mile up the hill to W. Bells Mill Road. Turn right on W. Bells Mill, cross Forbidden Drive and follow to first left at Lykens Lane. Go 0.2 miles to Manatawna Avenue and turn left. Take the 1st right onto Wissahickon Avenue. Cross Clyde and turn left onto Grakyn Lane (one-way street). Park along Grakyn and meet in front of the Houston Playground pavilion.
