Friday Bird Walks

8 - 9 AM
at Burlington's Oakledge Park every Friday in May

Celebrate spring on weekly, free bird walks with the Lake Champlain Committee (LCC). Pick up tips to recognize the avian creatures that pass through and inhabit our region and learn how they rely on the lake. Whether you're an experienced or new birder or just looking to take a lakeside stroll, please join us at Oakledge! All walks begin at 8 AM, rain or shine, and last about an hour. Park at Oakledge Park, not along Flynn Avenue (parking fees apply after Memorial Day).

What do catbirds, yellow warblers and red-eyed vireos have in common? They’ve all been seen in Oakledge Park! Spotting these spring migrants and year-round residents is easier before leaf-out.

The warblers are here! Mid-May is the best time to find these colorful, active little birds. See them forage and fly from the treetops, study their colors and distinguish their songs.

The region’s staple residents will be on their nests and preparing for summer. See who hangs around the water in the warmer months.

Our final bird walk program of the month will be followed by a light breakfast back at the LCC office at 208 Flynn Avenue. Click here to RSVP!
