This is the fourth of five Tuesday morning SPAS bird walks.

Birders will have an optional extension to 11 am.

The hardwood forest at Murphy-Hanrehan Park near Prior Lake definitely is among the tip top birding areas in the Metro area.

We’ll focus on the songs and calls of birds on their nesting territories. Residents include Hooded, Cerulean, Mourning, and Blue-winged Warbler, Acadian Flycatcher, and Scarlet Tanager. This outing can be rigorous, with muddy trails, low hills, and biting insects.

Special Instructions: Meet at 7am at the park. We will carpool from there to closer to the target area.

Directions: Go south from St. Paul on I-35E or I-35 W to Dakota County Road 42. Go west on Co 42 about 2 miles, and at the bottom of a hill turn left (south) onto Burnsville Parkway. Go about 2 miles on Burnsville Parkway, which turns southwest along that way, going past Hanrehan Lake and then take the next left onto County Road 75 then turn left into the parking lot.

Registration: No registration required.

Difficulty: Medium
