Sep 6, Saturday 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Fall Migrants at Hudson Mills

Leader: Karen Markey

Please join us for this hike in search of fall migrants at Hudson Mills Metropark. We will meet at 8 AM sharp at the flagpole in the front of the Activity Center, and the outing will go until about 10:30 or 11:00. We will be joined at this event by birders from the Oakland Audubon Society.

Karen knows this park extremely well. "I am always surprised about fall migrants at Hudson Mills," she notes. "We could have Scarlet Tanagers, Tennessee, Magnolia, and Blue-winged warblers, Redstarts, Blackpolls, and Cuckoos. A few years ago a Hooded Warbler made a brief appearance at the woodpile. The resident woodpeckers tend to be very active at this time of year as well." The dew on the ground can be heavy early in the morning in September, so please wear appropriate footwear. It is also a good idea to bring insect repellant. Finally, please also note that no pets are allowed on the nature trails.

For directions to Hudson Mills Metropark, click here. Once you enter the park, take the second right into a large parking lot that ends at the Activity Center. Please note that there is a fee if your vehicle does not have an annual metropark pass. If the entry booth to the park is unmanned, you can purchase a $5 daily parking permit at the office inside the Activity Center. See this webpage for more general park information.
