The Sunday Morning Bird Walks started in the 1940’s. Birders of all skill levels are welcome! We begin every week at the Anita Purves Nature Center parking lot and then decide whether to walk into Crystal Lake Park or Busey Woods. These parks play host to 36 species of warblers every spring as well as large numbers of vireos, thrushes, orioles and tanagers.

March-May & September-October
