Egret Marsh beginner bird walks are planned again this year led by Terry Greene and Alexis Peralta, Indian River County Stormwater Educator. Masks may be required where social distancing is not possible. Walks are subject to change due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Entry to the marsh is restricted. Walks are an easy 3/4 mile stroll from 8:30am – 10:30am. (End time is approximate.)
We will see many of the wading and water birds of Florida and learn how to identify them. We will also keep an eye in the sky for Bald Eagles, Hawks and, sometimes, a Caracara. Alexis Peralta, the park educator, will give a fascinating explanation of how the storm water park functions.
Each session is limited to 10 people and will have 3 walks at Egret Marsh.
We have loaner binoculars available for all who need them.
You do not have to be a member of Pelican Island Audubon Society to sign up for a session but we do ask that you plan to attend the three walks for your session.
Any new birder planning to take the Intensive Beginner Birding Class in February will find this a good introduction.
Session one: October 13th, 20th, and 27th, 2021
Session two: November 3rd, 10th, and 17th, 2021
