Bird Watching at KennesawMountain

Fall Bird Walks Scheduled for Spring 2007

 

Superintendent Daniel R. Brown is pleased to announce that KennesawMountainNationalBattlefieldPark will sponsor four free “Bird Walks” scheduled to take place rain or shine, at Kennesaw Mountain NBP.  Each walk is scheduled to begin at the park visitor center's parking lot, at 7:30 a.m., on the following mornings:

 

         Wednesday April 18                    Saturday, April 21 

        Wednesday, April 25                   Sunday, April 29  

                                  

                                                            

This is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

If you plan to go on an entire bird walk, from beginning to end, the approximate time of each birding trip will be about 3 hours, and the distance is approximately 2 1/2 miles.

 

KennesawMountain is noted by natural scientists as one of the south's most visited flyways.  Many rare and beautiful birds have been observed in this park's natural habitat.  These birds are referred to as "Neotropical Migrants."  They, along with nearly 25% of all U.S. bird species, breed in North America, migrating and wintering in Mexico, Central and South America, and the CaribbeanBasin.

 

These walks are organized and usually guided by either Mr. Giff Beaton or Mr. Chuck Saleeby. Mr. Beaton is the author ofBirding Georgia, A Guide to Finding Birds in Georgia.  He also periodically writes articles for various birding publications and over the past twelve years he has made over 800 birding trips through the trails of Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield.  Mr. Beaton has also developed a free "Bird Checklist" specifically for the park that is available in the visitor center.
