River West is several hundred acres of grasslands, riparian areas, ponds, bluffs and river habitats.  The walk is mostly level but we may walk as much as 3 miles on dirt trails and through wet grass.  Those who don’t want to walk the entire property can bird a smaller area.  We are not able to drive this property.  Because the trail gate is open all day, participants are able to leave early. This is the area where we saw the Vermillion Flycatcher several years ago.  He hasn’t been spotted this year, but there are lots of good birds in the ponds and river habitat.  It’s not unusual to record more than 50 species this time of year.  Possible sightings included American Bittern, Virginia Rail, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, Ruby-crowned kinglets, Sparrows, Northern Harriers, White-tailed Kites to name a few.  We will also be able to see the habitat restoration that the SJR Parkway and Conservation Trust has been working on for the past few years.  We will meet outside the gate at the intersection of W Riverview Dr and W Bluff Ave at 8:00am.  There is plenty of on street parking in this area. There is a port-a-potty available on the premises. We plan on finishing by 11:30 am.  Register for this walk here

Checklist: binoculars, scope, field guide, snacks, water, sunscreen, hat, water resistant shoes.
