Lakefront Birding – Kenosha
November 13 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Hoy Audubon will hold two fall bird walks along the Kenosha Lakefront. We’ll meet at the parking lot at Southport Park and may 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 the ongoing situation with COVID-19, Hoy will limit our field trips to activities/locations where we can maintain social distancing.
If you attend our field trips, we ask that you observe the latest CDC guidelines regarding masking and social distancing. Please bring your own water, snacks, and optics (binoculars and spotting scopes) to help minimize contact. We will also not be carpooling to events as we have in the past.
