Welcome to the website for the Jefferson and Dodge County and surrounding area bird walks! Here you can find information on the walks we hold including when they will be held, where to meet us for the walks, and any last minute information about the walks.
We have conducted our last walk for the 2017 season. We hope you were able to join us for at least a few of our walks! Please check back once we get closer to the next walk season which will start in April of next year. The information below will explain our birdwalk group to you if your are unfamiliar with us.
We hold our regular walks on the third weekend of every month, April through September. We post the location and actual day (Saturday or Sunday) shortly before the walk so we can be as certain as possible we go where the birds are. We may also hold additional walks from time to time when appropriate. All walks are open to the public, and are free. All ages and experience levels are welcome. Bring binoculars if you have them, and wear comfortable walking shoes.
You can use the links below on this page for more information about our walks as the year progresses.
If you have some particular location you think we should be considering as we plan throughout the year, please use the link to Webmaster to tell us about it. We'll be happy to consider your suggestions.
You can join our mailing list and be notified of all walks as soon as they are planned. We will not give out any information you provide and only use the list to keep people informed about the walks. Click on "Contacts" below to join.
Our walks are led by experienced birders. Karen Etter Hale, and Brad and Royan Webb, have been leading these walks since 2008. Charles Roberts is our newest walk leader and a valuable addition to the team. In addition, we often have experienced birders joining us. They are typically very happy to share their expertise. We always have a lot of fun with good birds, good company and pleasant walks. We'd be happy to have you join us for more of the same.
