Spring Bird Songs at Sausal Pond

Windy Hill Preserve
Approximate Total Miles

Birdsong is a key indicator of spring. Along with what is considered “songs,” birds have a wide variety of calls they use to communicate with each other. Come on this leisurely-paced walk with 230-foot elevation gain to explore the Sausal Pond Loop. Listen to the sounds of spring and learn about this fascinating bird communication with Docent Naturalists Melissa Hero, Chris MacIntosh, and Bobbie Riedel. Bring binoculars if you have them.
