Nestlings outings are half-day activities especially designed for children aged 5 to 12, to introduce them to birdwatching in a way that is full of interest and fun to them. There are four Nestlings outings every year and children must be accompanied by an adult.

The outings are carefully planned to be within easy access for families living in Sydney, to explore a natural bushy kind of place with enough walking to be an achievable challenge to the children, and to give opportunities for them to look at bugs and bark and beaches as well as birds. Anything in fact that stirs their imaginations. Nestlings occasionally go spotlighting where there is the chance to see nocturnal birds like owls and frogmouths as well as possums.

Outings finish at about 11:30 am followed by a picnic lunch (please byo lunch and drinks).Outings always conclude with a chat about what has been seen and a picture puzzle about birdlife. Spare binoculars are on loan if you don't have any.

Please contact Renée Ferster Levy on 0412 131 528 or by email nestlings@cboc.org.au for more information and to register your intention to attend

Nestlings began in 1992. Nestlings is jointly funded by the CBOC and Birding NSW.
