The large variety of birds in Riverview Park will be the focus of a bird identification program Monday, Sept. 16.

Participants should meet at 8 a.m. at the Mark Twain Statue. Binoculars would be helpful. The program is free and sponsored by Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department.

Krista Noel, a Missouri Department of Conservation natural history biologist, will lead the program. She named several birds participants would likely see and hear. “We’ll probably see some woodpeckers, red-bellied, downy and red-headed, tufted titmice, Northern cardinals, chickadees, nuthatches, indigo buntings, American robins, mourning doves and wood pewees,” she said. 

“Then we may get lucky and see some vireos, red-eyed or yellow-throated, rose-breasted grosbeaks, Baltimore orioles or some warblers.  We’ll probably see turkey vultures again and maybe a red-tailed hawk.”
