Gather at Sheep Hill at 7:30 am to greet your feathered friends, many who have come from afar! Former Audubon chapter president and local Tommy Richey will guide you by sound and sight to meet migratory birds taking up spring residency on the hill such as Indigo Buntings, Eastern Kingbirds, Yellow Warblers, Baltimore Orioles, and Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. Please bring water, snacks if you’d like, and wear sturdy shoes. If you have binoculars, please bring them; we’ll have a few loaner pairs if you don’t. While this event is free to the public, space is limited and registration is required.
Tommy Richey is a Williamstown resident and the former president of the New Hope Audubon Society chapter of Audubon North Carolina. A lifelong enthusiast of the outdoors, Tommy got into birding by wondering “what’s that?” Identifying one bird after another led to an enduring passion for learning about and protecting birds and the habitats that sustain them.
This event is fully booked.
