May "3rd Saturday" Beacon Bird Walk

  • Beacon, NY, 12508 United States (map)

Beacon Bird Walk! Madam Brett Park to Dennings Point State Park

Length: 2 miles; Difficulty: Easy

Putnam Highlands Audubon Society Board members Brian Rubino and Kyle Bardwell will lead a walk from Madame Brett Park to Dennings Point State Park. The route will hug Fishkill Creek and overlook a wetland complex at its mouth. Spring migration will be well underway! A southern breeze or an overnight shower could flood the area with neo-tropical arrivals including American Redstarts, Common Yellowthroats, and Black and White Warblers. Sporting their bright, fresh, breeding colors, these birds are not to be missed. Barred Owls have been known to roost in the ruins of the old hat factory and Red Shouldered Hawks are a regular sight along the way – not to mention the town’s own resident Bald Eagles! Participants should bring their own pair of binoculars and a curious spirit. Registration is required.
