For: More advanced practice at birding by ear
Place: Hibernia Park parking lot by pond on Lion Head Rd., 8:30 a.m.
Note: This trip is geared for everyone who would like to practice and improve their birding by ear skills. We start the day with a walk along the creek to picnic tables where we will review the birds heard. Then we will walk back along the creek listening for birds again. The total walking is about .4 miles, but the session can take up to two hours or more depending on the number of birds heard.
Directions: From Downingtown, take Route 30 bypass to Route 82 north (left turn). At the next left, turn onto Route 340 west. Go about 1.5 miles and turn right onto Wagontown Road. Follow Wagontown Road around to Park Road. (Be careful, at one point it seems Wagontown ends in a tee, but it continues to the right. Turn right onto Lyons Head Drive (between the pillars with lion faces on them.) Follow Lyons Head Drive until you see the pond on the right, the parking area is after the pond.
