HANNIBAL, Mo. — A “Birds of Summer” walk will be held at 8 a.m. Saturday, June 22, for individuals who like to see and hear birds.

The program will be led by Hannibal Parks and Recreation’s interpreter guide Gale Rublee and members of the Mississippi Hills Missouri Master Naturalist chapter.

Participants should meet at the parking lot past 10115 County Road 410 (sometimes called River Road) below Riverview Park. Rublee suggests that those interested download the Merlin Birding App to identify bird calls.

In a press release, Rublee said, “Which birds do we see throughout the summer? Are they as vocal as in the spring? Come practice your birding skills and see if there’s different birds along the river than what are at Sodalis and other parts of Hannibal.”

Programs are free and open to the public but participation is limited. Register for space at www.hannibalparks.recdesk.com/Community/Program
