The Birds of Bryn Coed
The Bryn Coed Preserve is a 1,505-acre mosaic of forest and farmland and an amazing place to go birding. Acquired by Natural Lands in 2017, it was one of the largest remaining unprotected swaths of land in the greater Philadelphia region. Saved from becoming a housing development, it instead has become haven for birds with 157 species identified here since the beginning of 2019.
Join VFAS volunteer and accomplished birder Rick Keyser as he guides us through this amazing property looking for resident birds and early migrants.
This field trip will cover 2 miles and last 2-3 hours. We will be travelling on grassy paths that could be wet or muddy, so appropriate footwear is essential. Bring binoculars and sun protection. All ages and abilities are welcome, although children must be accompanied by an adult.
There is no restroom available on site, although there is a portable toilet at the nearby Opalanie Park at 1422 St. Mathews Rd.
