A little bird told me… about the Summer Bird Walks with Dea Armstrong!
Our bird walks with City of Ann Arbor Ornithologist, Dea Armstrong, at Gallup Park are enjoyable for experienced and novice birders.

Friday, May 11th

Evening Bird Walk, 6-8 p.m.

Saturday, June 9th

Early Morning Bird Walk, 7:30-9:30 a.m.

Dea received her MS degree from the University of Michigan’s School of Natural Resources in 1998, and the same year she started working as the City of Ann Arbor Ornithologist in the Natural Area Preservation (NAP) unit. She is also active in the Washtenaw Audubon Society. Like many of us at HRWC, she is passionate about protecting birds’ natural habitat.

Meet us at the Gallup Canoe Livery Paddle Boat Dock for both of the bird walks.  Early May is the time of year when many migrant birds are passing through our area, looking for partners, and building nests.  By June, many birds move on, but those that are breeding are busy feeding young.  We hope to get a glimpse of this in action- and many other surprises- on our walk!  Please bring binoculars if you have them, but they are not necessary.

Free and open to all ages.  No registration required.
