(10.2) Attention birders: Meet at the Museum of Natural History this Sunday for a guided bird walk.
Join us for guided bird walks in Roger Williams Park. Although many of our breeding birds have flown south, plenty of year-round residents can be seen in the park! Please wear comfortable shoes and bring binoculars if you have them. All skill levels are welcome. Walks meet at the Museum of Natural History and Planetarium.
Bird blogs have been all atwitter about the White American Pelican sighted last week in Warwick, and it looks like he was hanging around for a few days . . . here and here. These are one of the largest birds in North America with wingspans reaching nine feet!
I only had one photo of a white bird and it is this Wandering Albatross (Diomedea exulans) which you can find inside the Museum of Natural History. And if you see one of these flying around outside on your walk . . . um, just don’t kill it.
Program fee per session: $3 per person/free for museum members. Pets and strollers are not permitted. Pre-registration required.
Two more bird walks are scheduled for this year: November 6 and December 4.
