Identifying Shorebirds

by Jason St. Sauver, Mitchell Lake Audubon Center Education Director

Who are all those birds wading, stalking, and walking the shores of the Mitchell Lake Wetlands? Our resident ‘Bird Nerd’ will fill you in on the clues to successfully identifying these often difficult birds. There will be a field trip the Sunday following to put your newfound skills to work.

It's an excellent time of the year to view shorebirds at Mitchell Lake. Spring migration is underway and there is always the likelihood of a suprise visitor. If you want to get an idea of what is being seen at Mitchell Lake, check out  eBird
