Blackstone Parks Conservancy

Our resident bird expert is back!  During this walk, we will explore Blackstone Park in search of migrant songbirds and local breeders including warblers, vireos, tanagers, grosbeaks and flycatchers. Warblers we may see include Yellow, Black-and-white, Yellow-rumped and Northern Parula and we may even be lucky enough to come across a rare migrant such as a Cape May Warbler. While warblers are often the highlight of spring migration, species such as Scarlet Tanager, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Great Crested Flycatcher and Eastern Wood-Pewee utilize these important green spaces as well.

Bring your binoculars, comfortable shoes and questions as we take a leisurely stroll and learn about the importance of Blackstone Park and the many species that pass through. We will meet at the Blackstone Park kiosk, Parkside Rd & E Orchard Avenue, Providence, RI 02906.

 

An unlikely visitor

Look who was strutting their stuff  near the new Blackstone Park fence-to-be.

Grateful for the 8th grade class from Lincoln School for all the hard work they put into our park on May 10th!
