Join experienced Fox Valley birder and wildlife artist Christopher Cudworth for bird finding and bird facts, including their lives and significance in the ecological landscape. Using a mobile app, Chris can help guests learn to identify even confusing birds; one never knows what will turn up along the banks of the Fox River during spring migration! Guests could observe more than thirty species of birds in an hour’s time!
Bring binoculars for looking at birds close-up and Chris will provide a spotting scope for those “hard to see” birds out in the field or up in the trees. Waterproof footwear is recommended. Due to unpredictable early morning temperatures, layered clothing is also advisable. This special program does not include a tour of Farnsworth House; participants will be eligible for discounted admission to a separate guided tour.
