Wild Birds Unlimited, Grosse Pointe Woods – Fall Bird Walk
Event Description: Explore the Ford House grounds with passionate bird spotters!
Novice and experienced birdwatchers are invited to join Wild Birds Unlimited (Grosse Pointe Woods) store owner Rosann Kovalcik, on a guided walk through the Ford House property. After the walk, participants gather to tally the species of birds seen.
Space is limited. Tickets are $5 and must be purchased in advance at www.fordhouse.org/events
Bird spotters at Ford House frequently see dozens of species on their walks, and every walk is different. Many species of birds call the estate home, plus many others stop by the 86 acres of woods, gardens and lakefront while on their way to and from warmer climates. Over the years doing walks here, over 190 species of birds have been found.
Recommended gear includes waterproof and comfortable walking shoes/boots, weather-appropriate clothing (layers!!), and binoculars (though we do provide loaner pairs to those without optics). Avoid very bright colors as they can startle the birds. Muted colors like earthy greens and browns works best. Be prepared for 1-3 miles of walking at a casual pace, across various types of terrain (some unpaved and hilly areas included).
We look forward to birding with YOU!
