Birding the “Wooded Hill” of Bryn Coed

Bryn Coed means “wooded hill” in Welsh – and one of the wooded hills on this striking Natural Lands property is home to a Bald Eagle nest.  We will keep a lookout for the nesting pair of adult eagles (egg laying usually begins in February here in Pennsylvania) while we also hope to spot the Northern Harriers and American Kestrels which also frequent the nearby fields.  As well as magnificent birds of prey, we have a chance to see many of the 11 species of sparrows that also winter here as well as other winter residents.

The trails here are earthen along rolling hills and depending on weather conditions may be muddy or icy and slippery. Good footwear is a must.  Bring binoculars if you have them.

There is no restroom on site.

This field trip is held in conjunction with the West Chester Bird Club.
