The Northern Neck Audubon Society will hold its monthly bird walk through Chilton Woods State Forest at 9 a.m. May 13.
Attendees will walk through loblolly pine and hardwood trees and native wildflowers including the showy orchis and the Pink Lady’s Slipper. Located in Lancaster County, Chilton Woods is part of the Rappahannock River watershed and has streams emptying into Lancaster Creek and the Corrotoman River.
Participants likely will see migrating birds, the society said in a press release.
Among possible sightings are Warblers, black-and-white, northern Parula, chestnut-sided, pine, and yellow-throated warblers, scarlet and summer tanagers, yellow-billed cuckoos, wild turkeys, northern Bobwhite quail, red-headed, downy, and pileated woodpeckers, Acadian flycatchers, brown thrashers and eastern wood-pewees.
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.
