Birmingham Audubon: Russ Bailey Memorial Beginner Bird Walk

  • Ruffner Mountain 1214 81st Street South Birmingham, AL, 35206 United States (map)

Join us for our annual half-day event celebrating the life and legacy of Birmingham birder Russ Bailey. Over the years, Russ dedicated countless Labor Days to impromptu field trips in pursuit of southbound migrants, a tradition that continues with this great half-day beginner bird walk to Ruffner Mountain. All ages and abilities welcome!

The details: Meetup is at 7 a.m. at the main Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve parking lot (1214 81st St. S., Birmingham), located on the northwestern face of the mountain, at the far end of 81st Street South. As always, remember to bring plenty of water and snacks, insect repellent, rain gear, sunblock, and seasonally appropriate attire. Since part of this trip involves a moderate walk up the mountain side, good walking shoes are a must.
