Bird Walks

From Sunday, July 14, 9:00 am until 11:00 am
Categories: Youth, Adults, Nature, Walk

Get to know McKinley Park's birds at dual Bird Walks, starting at 9 a.m. on the second Sunday of each month in McKinley Park, 2210 W. Pershing Road, Chicago. Dates for the walks include June 9, July 14, August 11 and September 8, 2019.

Many interesting birds make their home in the park; participants will learn to identify birds and watch as they build nests and raise their young during the summer months. The event is geared toward adults and families with kids 8 and older. 

Conducted in conjunction with the McKinley Park Farmers Market, the first walk begins at 9 a.m. at the field house, and the second walk begins at 10 a.m. from the Farmer's Market in the northwest corner of the park.

Participants should dress for the weather and bring binoculars, a notebook and a field guide, or borrow from others. Each walk is about 1 mile long on paved paths.

The walks are sponsored by the Chicago Audubon Society.
