Brenton Point State Park
Join Patrick Felker at Brenton Point State Park as he and other participants search for migrating birds of the Fall season. Brenton Point is a migrant trap and their should be some decent birds around. As birds travel south they come to the Atlantic Ocean. They turn back around and find the nearest point of land to rest and feed. Brenton Point is one such place. To register for this walk, please click HERE.
Walk Leader: Patrick Felker
All participants are required to sign a waiver prior to joining the walk. You may print it yourself or sign a copy when you arrive. Thank you for your understanding.

Snake Den Farm
Sparrow ID Walk
Join Tom Younkin at Snake Den Farm in Johnston as he helps beginning and intermediate birders sharpen their sparrow identification skills. Snake Den Farm attracts many migrating sparrows in the fall as well as a good number of resident species. Many sparrows look very similar and ID'ing them can be a challenge. Tom will share some tips and techniques to help simplify the ID process. Remember to park at the Farm parking lot on Brown Avenue (do not park behind the fire station on rte. 6).

- Ocean State Bird Club Executive Board
“But in the early 1970s, we were not birdwatching. We were birding, and that made all the difference. We were out to seek, to discover, to chase, to learn, to find as many different kinds of birds as possible — and, in friendly competition, to try to find more of them than the next birder. We became a community of birders, with the complications that human societies always have; and although it was the birds that had brought us together, our story became a human story after all.”
