SPECIAL EVENT: Spring Bird Walk with Kelly

ABOUT THE EVENT:
Join us for our annual spring birding adventure to identify birds through sounds and behaviors at the Hooksett Riverwalk Trail in Hooksett, NH. This approximately 1.5 mile walk will be led by Kelly Dwyer, naturalist, award-winning environmental educator, and owner of Nature Education Opportunities .

You have become a keen observer of your dog’s communication through learning the meaning behind various barks, whines and behaviors. Let’s apply these observation skills to the avian world as we explore the beautiful habitats along the Hooksett Riverwalk, welcoming back migrating birds and celebrating our year-round resident feathered friends!

As at past bird walks, you will be amazed how relaxed your dog will be as they reflect your relaxed mood.

Along our walk, we will discuss and examine:

  • Ground-breaking new research behind bird behavior and communication.
  • Territory establishment, mate selection and nesting strategies.
  • Tips and techniques to identify birds through field marks, song, and habitat location.

Pack your binoculars and let nature charge up your energy for a few hours. Future walks with your pups will take on a new dimension of joy and engagement as you will be able to recognize many birds along the trails.
