VILLAGE OF SHERBURNE — The Chenango Bird Club will begin its summer evening birdwatching series with a leisurely stroll along the Norwich Greenway Trail on Wednesday, May 8.
Attendees are asked to meet in front of Tractor Supply in the South Plaza Shopping Center on the east side of Route 12 at 6 p.m.
Birds are normally returning from migration in April and May, and tend to follow watercourses. This makes the Greenway Trail an ideal spot to find birds as the trail runs along the Chenango River.
Birds will be busy migrating, establishing territories, courting and nesting. They vocalize frequently, making them easier to spot. Chenango Bird Club member Fred von Mechow will lead the walk and point out birds’ visual field marks and songs. The club will provide binoculars to those who don’t have their own.
Refreshments will be served after the walk.
Other walks will be held June 12, July 10 and Aug. 14.
The Chenango Bird Club presents monthly programs, except January, February and March. Nature enthusiasts of all levels and interests may attend programs, free of charge, at the Rogers Environmental Education Center Visitor Center. Rogers Center is located one mile west of the Village of Sherburne on Route 80.
