Birding and Everything You Need To Know About Tuesday
Here's everything you need to know about Tuesday.

Birding TripMorris Arboretum will host a birding field trip on Tuesday.  Here's more information: "Led by Ruth Pfeffer.  On this trip we will be birding along the Perkiomen Trail, a new site for a Morris Arboretum birding adventure. The gravel trail, a former railroad bed that was preserved as open space, runs along the Perkiomen Creek in Montgomery County. We will look for fall migrating and resident birds. Along the way we will visit the Perkiomen Valley Park, a scenic spot with a variety of good birding habitats including woodlands, wetlands, and open grass areas. We hope to see herons, kingfishers, waterfowl, ospreys, woodpeckers, hawks, bluebirds, a variety of song birds, and possibly a bald eagle. We plan to stop at Pennypacker Mills, a National Register of Historic Places site. During the Revolutionary War, George Washington used the mansion as a headquarters prior to the Battle of Germantown and also as a field hospital for injured soldiers after the battle. Dress for the weather. Bring your binoculars, lunch, and something to drink. Meet at the Arboretum in the meadow next to the entrance kiosk. We will travel by small bus or van.
