After-Work Birding at Ellis Woods Park: VFAS Young Adult Series

Want to stretch your legs after a long day at your desk?  Join VFAS volunteer leaders Eric and Nick on this after-work birding outing that is geared toward young adults and led by young adults, held at Ellis Woods Park in northern Chester County.

Both Eric and Nick bird regularly at this lovely park which includes 71 acres of woods, meadows, wetlands, and cultivated farmland as well as a portion of Pigeon Creek.  All of this supports a great variety of birds – over 160 documented species to date. The park has been developed by East Coventry Township with birders and in mind:  the Birder’s Loop Trail features interpretive signs describing birds found in each habitat, and a printable checklist of birds that have been sighted at the park is linked here: https://eastcoventry-pa.gov/vertical/sites/%7BA2FA46C5-686F-4B16-8376-0BDF39FCC483%7D/uploads/Bird_list_REVISED.pdf

This field trip will cover up to 2 miles over mostly rolling terrain, but there will be some short, steep sections to navigate. The uneven earthen trails will likely be muddy and slippery in spots, so good footwear is a must.

Please bring binoculars if you have them.  All experience levels are welcome, including those just beginning their birding journey.  Please note there is no restroom on site.
