Bird Walk (Bird Banding canceled) - Westmoreland Sanctuary
November 10, 2012 - Mount Kisco

Bird Banding at 9am on Nov. 10 has been canceled and will be substituted for a Bird Walk at 9am. After this week's nor'easter, the early snow accumulation across the preserve has put an inordinate amount of stress on the songbird population. Two dozen or more individual birds comprising over a dozen different species can be observed at all times around the bird feeders at the banding station. These birds are relying heavily on the bird feeding station due to the immediate food shortage caused by early snow. With this in mind, the Sanctuary does not wish to further stress individual birds by capture during a banding session, so the program has been canceled for this weekend. Instead, meet for a short bird walk at 9am outside the nature center. There are a number of good winter birds to search for, including fox sparrow, red-breasted nuthatch, and yellow-bellied sapsucker. A self-guided scavenger hunt will be available all day as well. As of Friday, Nov. 9, there is still no power to the nature center, so the building will be closed. A few copies of the trail map are available in the kiosk at the parking lot, but if you plan to walk the trails, it is recommended that you print your own trail map at home before arriving, since the Sanctuary is unable to make any additional copies.
