Beggining Bird Walk At Magnuson Park On Sunday

The Seattle Audubon Society is having a  bird walk at Magnuson Park on Sunday at 9am with leader Emily Bishton.  

Participants should meet at the Promontory Point Environmental Learning Center,  the red-metal-roofed shelter next to little drive-in road at the west edge of parking lot #E-1, marked with a pink square on the park map.  

The information says:

This field trip is geared for beginner birders and families.  We will spend approximately 3 hours spotting birds from the trails of Promontory Point, the Flyway, and the entire Wetlands Complex.   
We'll keep a lookout for the multiple sparrow and swallow species that are annual summer visitors, as well as year-round residents such as Downy Woodpecker, Pied-billed Grebe, Osprey, other raptors and waterfowl.    
Be prepared for approximately 2 miles of walking, up hill and down.  
If you wish to borrow binoculars, make sure to request them from the Seattle Audubon office when you register.  
Donation $15 to Seattle Audubon for Birdathon.
