Lakefront Birding – Kenosha
December 5, 2020 @ 9:00 AM
Hoy Audubon will hold two fall bird walks along the Kenosha Lakefront. We’ll meet at the parking lot at Southport Park and walk a portion of the Kenosha Sand Dunes. We will also visit other spots along the lakefront. The field trip end time will depend on bird activity and/or weather conditions but will generally conclude no later than 12:00 PM.
Along the lake we’ll be looking for migrating ducks (the males in breeding plumage will be looking good!), scoters, grebes, and other waterfowl. We might see a few shorebirds at the lakefront as well as some late fall migrants like Yellow-rumped Warblers and kinglets in the wooded areas.
In late fall it’s usually cold and windy at the lakeshore, so dress for the weather (a warm jacket, a hat, and gloves) and wear sturdy walking shoes. Bring your bird book, binoculars, and a spotting scope if you have one (don’t worry if you don’t!).
Note: Due to COVID-19, if you attend our field trips, we ask that you wear a mask, and please bring your own water, snacks, and optics (binoculars and spotting scopes) to help minimize contact.
