How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This cache is for the birds ... the birds who provide such a joyous accompaniment to our caching adventures.
The given coordinates are for parking at the Spencer Crest Nature Center, a fine place to see, hear, and learn more about birds.
The cache coordinates are:
N42 06.ABC W077 04.DEF
A = nuthatch plus bluejay
B = cardinal plus chickadee
C = red-winged blackbird plus cardinal
D = nuthatch plus red-winged blackbird
E = bluejay minus cardinal
F = chickadee minus robin
Now for the fun! Listen to each bird song and identify which of the six birds - bluejay, cardinal, chickadee, nuthatch, red-winged blackbird, or robin - is the singer. Note that the name of each bird song is a number; if, for example, a cardinal sings song "one," then cardinal is 1 in the above equations.
one (visit link)
two (visit link)
three (visit link)
four (visit link)
five (visit link)
six (visit link)
We hope you enjoy these bird songs. Perhaps you'll hear them again on your walk to the cache. Wear boots!
