About Sunrise Birding LLC Bird Walks & Day Trips:
  • Preregistration is required for all programs.
  • Please review the Terms and Conditions prior to registering.  First time attendees will be required to submit a signed copy of the Terms & Conditions.
  • Payment occurs just before the event begins and some programs require payment in advance.  Cash or check accepted. Workshop and Day Trip prices vary. Please check the specific itinerary.
  • Most events take place entirely outdoors. Be prepared for changing weather conditions. Trails may be over uneven ground and bathroom facilities may not be available. Plan to be out in the field for 2 to 4 hours for local birds walks and longer for workshops and day trips.
  • Though not particularly strenuous, these programs are intended for persons in reasonably good health and physical condition. Participants must be capable of walking over uneven terrain. Footwear should be sturdy. Terrain may be muddy and wet. Footwear should be appropriate for such conditions.
  • Be sure to bring any personal necessities such as sunscreen, insect repellent, and drinking water.
  • Binoculars are advised for all programs and participants must supply their own. Spotting scopes are recommended as they can be very useful for studying birds at a distance.
