The Old Mill District and the East Cascades Audubon Society are offering free weekly bird walks in Bend to the public every other Friday, April 6 through May 18. These free walks are guided by an expert from the local Audubon Society and wind around the trails of the Old Mill District.
The area is a migratory corridor and attracts a host of incredible birds either passing through or as cherished residents. Spring is an excellent time to see all the action with warming weather, nesting and migration.
The walks are appropriate for all ages and interested parties, from novices to experienced avian experts. Groups will meet at 10 a.m. at the Ticket Mill in the core of the Old Mill District, where binoculars provided by Leupold are available for checkout.
Participants can also pick up a specially designed birding list to help identify birds and some common animals seen along the walk.
