Meet at the parking lot at 850 West Osterhout Avenue on the north side of Osterhout Avenue between Oakland Drive and Westnedge Avenue.

The park consists of mown lawn, scrubby brush, and woodland areas. We’ll walk easy paths through all areas looking for migrants and residents such as warblers, vireos, tanagers, orioles, grosbeaks, woodpeckers, etc. If time permits and people wish to, we may drive around to and do some exploring at Bishop’s Bog also (knee-high water boots will be needed here). Bring binoculars and field guides. Insect repellent may be worth having along as well. The trip should be about two hours.
