Spring Birding Blitz by CRC

       The Chester, Ridley, and Crum watersheds host a great variety of birdlife and mid-May is peak
time for spring migration. CRC Executive Director Brian Byrnes will be conducting a “big day” to
see how many bird species can be found in the Chester, Ridley, and Crum watersheds in a
single day and support CRC’s programs. You are welcome to join Brian for two legs of his
journey: a morning walk at Ridley Creek State Park or an evening walk at Kirkwood Preserve, or
support the Birding Blitz with a donation to CRC. These will be relatively fast-paced walks in
order to find as many species as possible in a short time period. Birders of all experience levels
are welcome.

6:00 AM
Woodland-nesting birds and migrant warblers are the targets for this early morning walk. Meet at
the Bridle Trail trailhead on Gradyville Road. The walk will likely end by
9:30 AM, but participants can leave at any point.

6:00 PM
Search for grassland birds, including Bobolink, Eastern
Meadowlark, and American Kestrel, species that are
regular at this Willistown Conservation Trust property, but
difficult to find elsewhere in the watersheds. Meet at the
Preserve parking lot on Grubbs Mill Road. Walk should finish by 7:30 PM.
