Sunday Magnuson Park Bird Walk

The Seattle Audubon Society is holding a Bird Walk on Sunday from 9-noon at Magnuson Park. The leader is Jan Bragg.

The information says:
Magnuson Park offers a variety of habitats, including ponds, forest, fields, and a lake shoreline. This outing is suitable for beginner or intermediate bird-watchers, including children accompanied by an adult.  
We will walk uphill and down, searching for birds and bird nests along the way. Songbirds will be singing for those wanting to practice birding-by-ear skills. Migrants may be about. 
And we’ll be celebrating mothers: Ducklings should be present, so we will study mothering skills when we find them. If we are lucky enough to find an active bird nest, we will try to observe mothering there as well.  
For those collecting pledges for Birdathon, and trying for 50 species, we may need to go to alternate sites (e.g. Montlake Fill, Matthews Beach?) afterwards. 
Birdathon Donation is $15.  
Meet at the Education Pavilion (west side of boat launch parking lot E-1, at the end of drive, on the right, after entering the NE 65th St entrance).
