Join the Pajarito Environmental Education Center for their monthly Pajarito Plateau bird walk on Saturday, July 20 at 6:30 a.m. If you’ve ever wondered about what birds you see around the Pajarito Plateau, this is a great opportunity to find out! The walks are designed for both people that already enjoy birding and those who are just beginning or simply curious. The walk is free to participate in, but space is limited and registration is required.
Local birder Mouser Williams will lead the July birding walk. The group will meet at the Los Alamos Nature Center and carpool to Upper Los Alamos Canyon to look for birds. In addition to identifying the bird species they see, participants will be looking for breeding indications for the Los Alamos Breeding Bird Atlas.
Pajarito Plateau Bird Walks are held one Saturday per month and are led by a local birder. The group size is limited to 10 participants on each outing, so pre-registration is required. The next birding walk will be on Saturday, August 10.
