Each year, Ashworth/Greenwood Park is one of only two locations where one can see nesting Mississippi Kites in Iowa. These slender raptors are phenomenal aerialists, having the ability to catch insects in mid-air! Join us for a morning search for this neat bird and other late-nesting birds at this fantastic greenspace in the middle of Des Moines. Families are welcome to attend and no birding experience is required. Binoculars will be available for use but you're welcome to bring your own. This field trip is free but advanced registration is required.
