Join Chirp Nature Center as we kick off the first free & in-person wild bird-watching event of the 2022 season. Starting from Chirp at 8AM on May 7th, 2022, this free educational wild bird walk will take you through the forest and along Big Bear Lake with stunning lakeshore views. While on this hour and a half walk, be on the lookout for swallows tumbling through the air, lake birds sunbathing just offshore, and jays calling from the trees.
During the walk, Chirp’s Wild Bird Guides will share unique local facts and give tips and tricks to enhance your bird identification skills. (Note that exact bird walk locations are determined immediately before the walk begins based on conditions and group size.) After the walk, return to Chirp for complimentary donuts, coffee, and a special gift. Wild birdwatchers of all levels and ages are welcome, so be sure to register free to secure a spot for this event.
In preparation for the Global Big Day (May 14th, 2022), those interested in extending their wild bird watching beyond the morning can continue birding throughout the day. Join Chirp Bird Guide Matthew to explore Big Bear birding hotspots perfect for maximizing your Global Big Day in Big Bear.
