Brrrrding at Brrrryn 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.  On this outing we will keep a lookout for the nesting pair of adult eagles (egg laying usually begins in February here in Pennsylvania) while also hoping to spot other raptors which frequent this expansive preserve including Northern Harriers, American Kestrels, and Barred Owls.  As well as magnificent birds of prey, we have a chance to see many of the 11 species of sparrows that may winter here as well as other winter residents.

The trails at Bryn Coed are earthen and rolling, and depending on weather conditions may be muddy or icy and can often be slippery. Good footwear is a must.  Please bring binoculars if you have them.  Beginning birders as well as children are always welcome to join us (although children must be accompanied by an adult).

Please note that there is no restroom on site
