Enjoy A Bird Song Saunter

AMBOY – To paraphrase a classic movie, “The woodlands are alive with sound of music,” bird songs of course, and the music is enchanting!

On May 4 at 7 p.m. (rain date, May 5), delight in an evening concert along woodland trails of the Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center.

Wander the trails and brookside, led by naturalist Pat Carney and Faith Baker of the Onondaga Audubon Society, seeking and listening to feathered friends engaged in courtship, nesting and defending territory.

Participants may see a Pine Warbler, a Wood Thrush, or Cedar Waxwings near the pond.

Binoculars are recommended.

While the center does have a few pairs of binoculars to borrow, everyone is encouraged to bring their own.

Bird Song Saunter is a program designed for people of all ages.

There is a program fee of $4 per person or $12 per family, and children under 3 are free.

The Amboy 4-H Environmental Educational Center is located at 748 Route 183, between routes 13 and 69 near Williamstown.
