Cane Creek Reservoir Bird Watch – Chapel Hill

March 16 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am

March is a great a time to go birding and Cane Creek is the top eBird hotspot for Orange County! Local birding experts, Karen Hogan and Kent Fiala, will guide you through a variety of habitats, including the lake, a creek, fields, and woodland areas, to some of the best birding spots along the shore of Cane Creek Reservoir. You might see songbirds, waterfowl, or raptors like ospreys and bald eagles. Last March, they recorded over 70 unique bird species at the Reservoir and surrounding woodlands!

Bring sturdy shoes or, better yet, boots, binoculars if you have them, and a cell phone for reporting your bird observations on eBird, a citizen science website run by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Dress warmly as temperatures at the Lake are usually a little colder.

This event is appropriate for all fitness levels. There are some paved sidewalks, gravel roads, and grassy ground with gentle slopes.

RSVP by emailing OWASA Communications Specialist Blake Hodge, please include your name and how many people will be in your party.
