'Bird Sit' with Rick Wright & Alison Beringer
July 9th, Saturday, from 6:30 to 9:00 a.m.
Boyce Thompson Arboretum
Rick Wright and Alison Beringer invite nature lovers to a very different birdwatching experience on July 9th -- a sedentary, peaceful, focused 'bird sit' in the Demonstration Garden at Boyce Thompson Arboretum from 6:30 to 9:00 am. "We'll walk slowly towards the Demonstration Gardens, where we'll install ourselves for what should be a very productive 'puddle watch' as birds arrive and depart for a drink or a bath. We can hope for good numbers of Lucy's and Yellow Warblers, and even such secretive birds as Bell's Vireo and Yellow-breasted Chat often emerge from the thickets near the Arboretum's Woodland Garden for good views at the artificial stream. And there's always the chance of a surprise," said Wright, who saw a rare Indigo Bunting and also a Blue Grosbeak near this spot just a week ago.
