Fall Birding at Shirley’s Bay

Leader: Jon Ruddy

Meet: P1 parking lot at the Shirley’s Bay boat launch at the end of Rifle Rd.

We will explore the river near the parking lot for waterfowl and raptors then head onto the trails to look for local and migrating birds in the forest. At this time of year we should find a good variety of species. The trails lead to a causeway where migrating shore birds can be found in the shallow water nearby.

Bring binoculars and drinking water. The trails are relatively flat and easy to walk but sturdy shoes are recommended. Register at events@mfnc.ca
