Birding in the Town of Aurora, Get Ready

Birding in the Town of Aurora is fun, especially in the spring. Yes, spring is finally here. Birds are here. Tiny flowers starting to poke their heads to reach out for the sun. Not much of green grass but it will fill in anytime soon. Trees starting to bud. Sun is much warmer.

Birding around Aurora trails and nearby greens spaces is always fun. Keep your eyes open. Birds are everywhere, in your backyard, at the McKenzie Marsh, at the Atkinson Wetland and the Aurora Community Arboretum. These are the few places where seeing at least one bird is guaranteed. Enjoy the gallery.

Another great birding places to spot birds are around the man-made ponds. You can find many around Aurora. Here is one on south side of St. John’s sideroad east of Bayview Avenue that is being prepared, therefore, for time being let the birds and other critters to settle first.
