Count the Birds February 19
This February is the Great Backyard Bird Count, a day when the birds that call the world home are celebrated and singled out. Have you ever looked at a bird and felt awed by the bright colors, the pretty marking, the fact that it can fly? Who hasn't? This February, celebrate the native birds in Kentucky at the Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve.
The Birds in Kentucky's Backyard
There are many birds who call Kentucky home and may that pass through the state during migrations. The Great Backyard Bird Count celebrates the birds you can find in your local area and the nature preserve is a great place to spot them. It's free to join the group. You'll take a hike through the property that's led by bird experts. And who knows? You might see many different bird species before the walk is through.
All bird sightings will be reported to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology as part of this event. Bird watchers of all ages and skill levels are welcome to attend this totally free event. Be there with your walking shoes on from 10 am to noon. The Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve is at 12501 Harmony Landing Road. That's just a short drive outside of Prospect, a neighborhood that's a really great prospect when you're in the market for real estate.
