President Murray Park Bird Walk

President Murray Park Bird Walk Tour Description

Enjoy a short 1-hour bird walk observing many kinds of finches and other songbirds found in this large spruce plantation at any time of year. During migration season, many warblers, flycatchers and thrushes visit this park.  The grass in this park is very level allowing for use by wheel-chairs. Excellent viewing and bird photography opportunities.

Both novice and experienced birders are welcome to join this tour to President Murray Park. The leader will point out the field marks used to identify each bird. You may request to borrow a pair of binoculars.

This President Murray Park Bird Walk Tour is ideal for low-mobility clients because the grass is level and may be suitable for wheel-chairs.
