Join for a special visit to Genesee Park with guest guide and local resident Judy McKeon who will share her birding patch. Read more about her experience at Genesee just below. We will be at a great time of year to see bird families and juvenile plumages, while enjoying the activity of fledging times. We hope to find Western and Mountain Bluebirds, Townsend's Solitaire, Western tanager, Plumbeous Vireo, Cordilleran Flycatcher, Western Wood-Pewee, and Williamson's Sapsucker, other woodpeckers, nuthatches, House Wrens and more. We might even spot a Rufous Hummingbird. Plan for birding paced hiking for about 2 miles on easy trails. We will carpool from the meeting spot.

From Judy: "I'm Judy McKeon and I live in the Genesee area.  Genesee Park consists of  2,413 acres, including the bison preserve, and is at an elevation of around 8,000. he park and the trails are well maintained.  I like birding up there in the summer because you can find a wide variety of species nesting up there, like the western tanagers, wrens, bluebirds, woodpeckers and nuthatches.  Trails take you to open meadows, through Ponderosa pines and Douglas-fir, and to the top of Genesee Mountain."
