Pittsboro, NC - Over the past year, Mark Kosiewski, Conservation Chair for the New Hope Audubon Society, and Fitch Creations Laura Morgan have installed over fifty potential home sites for bluebirds, nuthatches, purple martins, wood ducks, and owls, all within walking distance to most of our residents.

The bird walk will take place on Saturday, May 16 from 7:30 am - 9:30 am. The walk will begin at the Farmer's Market let and will include visiting the new feeders in Camden Park, as well as the native plantings designed to attract more birds.

Mark will point out resident and migratory species, and will discuss the numerous nest box installations and habitat improvements that have been implemented throughout Fearrington’s Village Center.

 

Joining Mark will be Kim Brand, Bird-Friendly Communities Coordinator for Audubon North Carolina, the state chapter of the National Audubon Society. Kim will talk briefly about attracting more birds to your yard with habitat improvements and native plants.

Come out and learn how you can help Fearrington become a pioneer with Audubon’s Bird-Friendly communities initiative.

We will meet in the farmer’s market parking lot beside the Fitch Creations Sales Office. Please bring binoculars, a bottle of water and your walking shoes. Rain date TBD.
