Event Description:

                                       Take Flight! Spotting Spring Birds

Discover the songs and sights of Minnesota’s spring migratory birds! Join birder and instructor Ron Miller MD for a birding walk to discover recently arrived breeding birds as well as species passing through on their northward migration.
Are you new to birding? Don’t worry, birders of all levels are welcome – this program is designed to improve birding knowledge, create field skills through song recognition and have fun watching birds outdoors. Ron, an avid fly fisherman, began birding waiting for the trout to rise and has taught indoor bird watching classes to beginning and experienced birders for the past several years. Join us and explore local birding hotspots in the park on a beautiful spring morning.
WHAT TO BRING: Bring binoculars and bird field guide books. Itasca State Park has a limited number of binoculars to lend. Wear comfortable shoes for walking and appropriate layers for the temperatures. Insect repellant and a hat are useful. Bring snack and water if you need it for this short outing.
