Vultures, Ravens and Owls: LIVE Bird Experience and Birdwalk -Nursery Tank Pond- ADA- McDowell Park
McDowell Mountain Regional Park
Did you know that vultures urinate on their feet to cool down? And that ravens hold 'funerals' for dead flock members? Or that owls 'throw up' bones and fur or feathers after eating? Celebrate the 'Eve of All Hallow's Eve' with a chance to view and learn all about these 'creepy' birds on a pre-Halloween birdwalk at McDowell Mountain Regional Park. Liberty Wildlife will be on hand with a live vulture and owl for a presentation before the birdwalk! Bring your binocs and come on out. No previous birding experience is required, only an interest in birds... and an interest in the macabre! This is a less than one mile, level, easy and ADA Accessible birdwalk. Meet at the Nursery Tank Trailhead.
