Birding by Ear

Saturday, July 20, 2024
Knox Farm State Park, East Aurora

Join Earth Spirit staff on this birding adventure at Knox Farm State Park. This place has multiple habitats, making it an ideal place to go birding. With the leaves fully out, birds have many places to hide, making birding by ear a vital skill for birders this time of year. Come learn these skills as you hike around the park in search of our feathered friends. Birders of all skill level are welcome! Binoculars will be provided for those who need them.
