The forest at Nadaka Nature Park is once again alive with activity as our diverse population of birds are busy nesting, singing, and enjoying the spring air! This May, join Friends of Nadaka and the Audubon Society of Portland as we lead a Spring Bird Walk through Nadaka’s beautiful forest and meadow. We will identify birds and bird calls, talk about species characteristics, and enjoy the richness of our urban bird population!

A limited number of binoculars will be provided. New and experienced birders are all welcome!

Meet at the Nadaka Nature Park picnic shelter at 9:45am to sign in and enjoy coffee and light refreshments before we start our walk at 10am.
