Public invited to Bird Walk at Anderson County Park

The public is invited to the Fifth Annual Bird Walk at Anderson County Park on Saturday, May 11, from 8 to 11:30 a.m.

Come explore the park for spring migrant and returning resident birds with expert birders Tom Anderson and Joe Sausen from the local Wild River Audubon Chapter. Warblers, often referred to as the “butterflies of the bird world,” should be in the area as they move north.

Last year over 40 species were identified — including many colorful warblers. Boardwalks across two wetlands and a lake viewing platform will provide great spots to see the flood of spring migrant birds.

The park is located in the southeast corner of Isanti County on County Road 18, a quarter mile north of County Road 9 and two miles south of County Road 5.

The event is free. Experienced bird-watching children are welcome. Call 651-462-2015 for reservations or with questions. Bring binoculars. A Bring Your Own picnic lunch will follow at 11:45 a.m. at the picnic shelter.
