The Northern Neck Audubon Society will hold its monthly bird walk through Menokin Plantation at 9 a.m. April 27.
Visitors can walk through the 325-acre plantation, which is a part of the Rappahannock River National Wildlife Refuge.
Spring is peak migration season for many bird species, which makes it a prime time for sightings, the society said.
Participants will likely see black-and-white, Northern Parula, chestnut-sided and yellow-throated warblers, vireos, Acadian flycatchers, gnatcatchers, summer and scarlet tanagers, belted kingfishers, woodpeckers, hawks, osprey and bald eagles.
Menokin, built in 1769, was the home of Francis Lightfoot Lee, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. The site was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1971 and is undergoing a renovation project.
The walk is free and open to the public and there will be several pairs of loaner binoculars available. For additional information about the Northern Neck Audubon Society, visit northernneckaudubon.org.
