The Tamworth Conservation Commission (TCC) offers Wednesday morning spring bird walks for anyone interested. Meet at 7:00 am at the Tamworth Town House parking area at the west end of Tamworth Village. The group drives and walks to excellent birding spots in and around Tamworth and returns by 9:15 (but people can peel off earlier). Bring binoculars if you have them (but we have an extra or two). Dress for the weather. Rain or shine, but not in a deluge. Over the 5 weeks, we'll see (or at least hear) ~80+ species and learn many birds' songs, field markings, and behaviors. This is the best time of year for birding!
The first documented TCC bird walk was in August, 1976, led by Peggy Damon. She started the regular May bird walks in the spring of 1977. Back then, they were publicized by Peg King with help from Betty Steele, key early leaders of the TCC. The local ritual has continued every year since.
