Cobbs Hill Park Field Trip

May 1, 2019 @ 8:00 am

With Spring in full swing, come to one of Rochester’s best-kept birding secrets: Cobbs Hill Park’s Washington Grove. Colorful warblers and other spring migrants arrive en masse at this urban oasis of tall stately trees.  We will search for Yellow-rumped Warblers, Black-throated Blue, and Black-throated Green Warblers, Nashville, Black-and-white and Hooded Warblers among others. We will likely hear the flute-like Wood Thrush and see Hermit Thrushes searching the ground for food. Sparrows, orioles, and perhaps a Scarlet Tanager will make an appearance.  Washington Grove is one of the best spring birding spots in the area.

Meet at 8:00 a.m. opposite the reservoir in the grassy area between the road and the woods; use the Highland Avenue entrance, just east of Monroe Ave.
