The Winter Solstice Bird Walk is only one week away! Join us for a late afternoon bird walk and bird themed crafts from 4-6pm. Read on for Toribird's winter tip of the week! ------ As the the nights get longer and the wind colder, people may think that winter is a bad time for birdwatching. It is true that some birds leave the Mid-atlantic to spend the season farther south. However, there are many that summer in northern places like Canada, and spend the winter right here in Philly! Ducks, kinglets, and sparrows are among those that winter in this area. Also, birds like the Blue Jay, American Robin, and Red-tailed Hawk, along with various types of woodpeckers, can be seen year-round at The Woodlands. Finally, since most trees have lost their leaves, it is much easier to find all these winter treasures!
