Event Details

Robin Hills Farm will be offering two-hour educational hikes as part of our Ecology Series. Topics will range from plant identification, to animal calls, to mammal skulls, and more! Great for families and groups. (Hiking is involved: please bring water and appropriate attire.)

This bird walk, led by avid birder and Washtenaw Audubon Society board member Jessica Adamczyk, will explore the various habitat zones of Robin Hills Farm in order to find and identify common avian species. Focusing on visual and auditory identification, as well as discussion of bird behaviors and life cycles, this class will follow a leisurely pace and is suitable for all ages and experience levels.

RHF will provide binoculars, but participants are invited to bring their own. Meet in the parking lot, and we will continue to the nature trails during the class.

Jessica Adamczyk has been a passionate birder for ten years, pursuing her field studies across four continents. She volunteers for the Ann Arbor Natural Area Preservation’s Breeding Bird Surveys, and monitors Eastern Bluebird nestboxes for the Southeast Michigan Land Conservancy. She also serves on the board for the Washtenaw Audubon Society.
