Exploring migrating warblers at Paletta on May 13
Explore migrating warblers with the Hamilton Naturalist Club Birding Hotline co-ordinator Cheryl Edgecome at Paletta Park on Wednesday May 13, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Meet at the parking lot at 4280 Lakeshore Road, Burlington.
This location is known for its abundance of diverse warbler species during migration. Warblers are small birds and known for their long migrations traveling from South America and the West Indies. Warblers come in a wide variety of colors.
Without binoculars or a birding scope, these attractive birds appear dark and uniform. The best time to find warblers is in the spring at their nesting grounds. Paletta Park is a good location to see spring migrants such as warblers. Carolina Wrens and water birds can also be found at this 14 acre park.
The Hamilton Naturalists’ Club is a non-profit organization with more than 600 members dedicated to the study, appreciation and conservation of our wild plants and animals. Walks led by knowledgeable club members are held throughout the year in local nature areas and are open to visitors and children are always welcome.
