Winter Birding at Fountain Creek Regional Park with Aiken Audubon: Saturday, January 16 – 9:30 a.m. and Tuesday, January 19 – 9:30 a.m.

Fountain Creek Regional Park has offered nice birding opportunities to date this winter, so we’re going to offer a couple of short notice outings to try and take advantage of these conditions. Ice-free areas on the ponds are hosting several species of overwintering waterfowl, landbirds ranging from the tiny Brown Creeper to the impressive Great Horned Owl have been seen in the open woodlands, and locally uncommon species such as American Dipper and Rusty Blackbird have been in and near the creek. This potential mix of birds should make for a fun group outing! We’ll meet and start from the Fountain Creek Nature Center. Total walking distance will be approximately 2 miles on easy trails at an easy pace.

Kip Miller will lead these outings. Face masks and social distancing will be required and group size will be limited. To reserve a space on either or both outings, please contact Kip at [email protected]
