Cobbs Hill Park Field Trip

May 2, 2018 @ 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 in masses to this urban oasis of tall stately trees. Pat Martin will demonstrate birding by ear as we stroll the quiet paths in search of Yellow-rumped Warbler, Black-throated Blue and Black-throated Green Warbler, Nashville, Black-and-white, and Hooded Warbler, and, if we are lucky, the elusive Cerulean Warbler, among others. We will likely hear the flute-like Wood Thrush and see Hermit Thrush searching the ground for food. Sparrows, orioles, and perhaps a Scarlet Tanager and a Barred Owl will make an appearance. Washington Grove is one of the best spring birding spots in the area.

Meet at 8:00 AM in the grassy area between the road and the woods near the reservoir, up the road from the entrance off Highland Avenue just east of Monroe.
