The Caledonia Conservancy will host its annual bird walk from 8 to 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Trout Ponds Prairie, 4819 4 Mile Rd.

The walk will be led by Rick Fare of Hoy Audubon Society, Racine.

This is prime time for neo-tropical birds migrating from their southern hemisphere wintering grounds. Over 200 of these migratory birds will be breeding in Wisconsin and Canada. Warblers, vireos, flycatchers, tanagers, orioles, hummingbirds and some thrushes can be expected.

In addition, many local birds such as cardinals, chickadees, bluebirds and herons may be seen nesting. Red-tailed hawks and turkey vultures may be seen patrolling the skies. This is an exciting time of year for bird watching. Bring binoculars! This event is free and open to the public, bring the whole family. Wear old shoes, ground could be wet. Meet at Trout Ponds/Prairie parking located at 4819 4 Mile Road, Racine @ 7:45 a.m. For more information, contact suzi.caledoniaconservancy@gmail.com or call 262-498-4993 or suzi.caledoniaconservancy@gmail.com
