Montezuma Audubon Center to host guided birding walk on solar eclipse day

WAYNE COUNTY N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — If you love birds and want to watch the total solar eclipse on April 8, combine both at the Montezuma Audubon Center’s guided birding walk.

The Montezuma Audubon Center in Savannah will have one-mile leisure guided walks on eclipse day for participants who want a look into how birds respond to the total solar eclipse.

“Will owls start hooting? Will songbirds return to their nests? Will waterfowl stop calling? We will explore the forest, grassland and wetland habitats to find answers to these questions and discuss how Montezuma is managed for songbirds, waterfowl, shorebirds and birds of prey,” stated the center.

The walks run every hour with an Audubon educator starting at 11 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m. Proper equipment will be provided, including binoculars, field guides and flashlights. It’s recommended that participants wear sturdy shoes that they don’t mind getting a little muddy and bring a water bottle if they want.

Walks start at the entrance to the Montezuma Audubon Center on 2295 State Route 89 and everyone is welcome to participate. An adult must accompany children under 16.

Space is limited, especially during the eclipse, and registration is required for every hike. Each hike is $10 per participant. A limited number of eclipse glasses will also be available for the walk during the eclipse.
