Birding Tour of Columbia Bottom Conservation Area

Red bird MDCSpring is here! Join us as we search for migrating and nesting birds throughout Columbia Bottom Conservation Area.

Date: Thursday, May 6, 2021 – 7:30am to 11:00am (Register by May 5)

Location: Columbia Bottom Conservation Area

We will meet at the parking lot next to the visitor’s center. Then do some birding around the visitor’s center before making our way to the confluence point. We will caravan with stops at various habitat locations in search for birds such as bobolink, dickcissels, lesser and greater yellow legs, prothonotary, northern parula, and more.

The birding adventure will end by the parking area near the confluence trail (parking lot N) with walking the road to the confluence (assuming it is not flooded – Some areas may not be accessible if the rivers are high, so we may not be able to go as far as intended.)

If you have them, please bring binoculars and spotting scopes. We can provide binoculars and guidebooks if you need to borrow one. Wear appropriate footwear and clothing as we may get muddy.

All ages are welcome. Please register each individual attending before or by May 5 as spaces will be limited to 30 individuals. Social distancing will be practiced and please bring a mask.
