The Theodore Roosevelt Nature and History Association invites birders of all ages and experience levels to participate in the 56th Annual Bird Walk on Sunday.
The walk will start at 6:30 a.m. in the Cottonwood Campground in the South Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
The casual one-hour stroll will travel along the Little Missouri River in search of as many bird species as possible.
Each year, 40 to 50 species are seen and heard, and over 80 different species have been observed over the last 20 years.
Following the walk, the Theodore Roosevelt Nature and History Association will host its annual Chuck Wagon Breakfast at the Cottonwood Picnic Area, which is adjacent to the campground.
Buttermilk pancakes, country sausage, cowboy coffee and juice will be served beginning at 8 a.m. A free-will donation is suggested to help defray expenses of the meal. Those interested in attending the breakfast should make reservations in order to assist in planning the event.
Participants should bring binoculars, field guides, and keen eyes to help record the day’s sightings, and should be prepared for any kind of weather. To make reservations for the breakfast, call 701-623-4730, ext. 3419 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
