Join us for a winter walk as we tally birds and check the nest box condition of the bluebird and wood duck boxes around Ray Amato Trail. Ray Amato offers a variety of great birding habitats, including shrub, brush pile,  open forest, wetland and streamside habitat with the Little Juniata River.  In addition, a nearby housing development attracts many types of birds that enjoy living near people. 

Afterward, we will meet for an optional “pay for your own” lunch at Marzoni’s just a short drive up the road in Greenwood. 

Where: Meet at the Northern Blair Recreation Center parking lot at 9 am. 

What to bring: Binoculars, comfortable hiking boots or shoes, and dress warmly as this event is outdoors and weather can be a factor.  The trail is level, and easy to walk. 
For questions or concerns, or in case of inclement weather the day of, please email JVAS Field Trip Chair Michael Kensinger, or call at (814) 505-3410 to verify the event has not been cancelled.  We hope to see you there!
