Brewbirding is Back!
It is important to follow these directions:
Goose Run Park has two entrances; we will meet at the gravel parking lot off of Levengood Road (NOT Goose Run Road. Do NOT put Goose Run Park into your GPS.) From Hwy 100 North, take the Farmington exit. Turn left onto Farmington Rd for 0.7 miles, then a slight left onto Evans Rd for 0.4 miles. Turn left onto Colebrookdale Rd. In 1 mile, turn left onto Levengood Rd. Continue for about 0.6 miles around the bend to the gravel parking lot on the right.
Goose Run Park (Douglass Township, Berks County) consists of 82.5
acres of open space and wooded trails. On this Memorial Day we will search for the red of Scarlet Tanagers, the white of White-breasted Nuthatches, and the blue of Indigo Buntings. We also hope to find two species that are declining in numbers due to habitat loss: the Bobolink and Eastern Meadowlark.
Beginning birders and children (accompanied by an adult) are very welcome to attend. Bring binoculars if you have them; a hat and/or sunscreen are also recommended. This will be a walk of up to 2 miles on earthen paths. No restroom is available at the park, but there are restrooms at the nearby Sly Fox Brewery, which has outdoor seating and pub food; the leaders will be going there after the outing, and we invite everyone to join us.
