March 25th: John Heinz NWR, PA-Steve Boyle
- We will begin the day birding at John Heinz. Finishing there about 11:30 we will break for lunch at the refuge. Please bring food and beverages. After lunch we will continue to Bartram’s Gardens which is a 15 minute drive from John Heinz. Feel free to bird all day or half day. The John Heinz refuge offers healthy and productive expanses of freshwater tidal marsh, open waters, mudflats, and woodlands which support the hundreds of species that breed, rear their young, rest during migration, or call the refuge home year-round. It has been designated as an Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society. Bald Eagles are often seen, as they have nested here since 2009. Bartram’s Garden is a National Historic Landmark operated by the John Bartram Association in cooperation with Philadelphia Parks and Recreation. Bartram’s Garden is perhaps the best 40 acres of birding in Philly! With river access, fields, woodlands, wetlands, and ornamental plantings, this spot has an amazing diversity of bird-attracting habitat.
