GREATER HOOD CTY.

FREE EVENT!!! 

When: April 22nd 7:00 – 10 am

 WHAT to BRING: good hiking shoes, long pants, insect repellant
sun hat/ sunscreen, binoculars if you have them
WHERE:   Acton Nature Ctr., 6900 Smoky Hill Ct. Acton TX 76049
Are you young and interested in learning about birds and how to identify them?
Come join us during the peak of spring migration for the first bird walk
of the Young Birders Group of Greater Hood County at the Acton Nature Center
led by young birder and Master Naturalist Jake Balmuth.
During this walk we will be identifying and counting the number of birds
we see and hear. We are likely to see some of the species that frequent the ANC,
such as Northern Cardinal, Carolina Chickadee, Blue-gray Gnat Catcher
and Black-chinned Hummingbird. Since this walk will be during migration,
we have the chance to see some species that are more
unusual visitors to the ANC,
This walk is intended for youth older than ten, who are interested in birds
and birding, however parents with younger children are certainly welcome.
