Washington Park bird walk

wood ducks in Washington Park

Wood ducks spotted in the Washington Park lake last year.

This could be a nice way to spend a Sunday morning: There's a bird walk in Albany's Washington Park May 7, co-sponsored by the Washington Park Conservancy and the Albany Institute. Blurbage:

Bird watchers and nature fans of all kinds can try their hand at spotting the many species of birds in Washington Park. Tristan Lowery and John Pipkin from the Washington Park Conservancy will lead the walk and share their birding expertise.
The program will begin at Englewood Place in Washington Park. Participants should dress for all weather conditions and are encouraged to bring binoculars.

The walk starts at 8 am. Suggested donation is $10.

You might think spotting a bunch of different types of birds right in the middle of the city would be hard, but as Julie noted last year, there's a wide range of feathered creatures who make a stop in the park.

The date has been corrected (the day was correct). Sorry about that.

Has there been any word on whether the Wood Ducks have returned?

or, sunday the 7th.
whenever it is, sounds great!

The article states it's on May 5, but it's actually on May 7 (which is a Sunday)

The Wood Ducks are back. I've seen them a couple of times since early April.

I saw a pair of wood ducks there last week. Not sure if they were staying or passing through.

Date fixed. Thank you for the heads up.

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
