This morning guided bird hike with the Weeks State Park Association begins at 7 am at the parking area along the auto road to the summit of Mount Prospect at Weeks State Park in Lancaster, NH. We will walk up the auto road slowly looking for a variety of recent arrivals of warblers, flycatchers and vireos. We will walk approximately three miles on the park auto road. At 11 am we will regroup and drive over to the boat launch on Martin Meadow Pond to look for loons, eagles and osprey.

Naturalist Dave Govatski will lead this program that will look at several charismatic mammals of the White Mountain region, including American marten, fisher, snowshoe hare, beaver, black bear and moose. We will discuss what these animals eat, how they survive our long winters and places where you might see them.
