The month of August is the peak migration period for Shorebirds in our area. Many of these birds nest in the arctic regions of Canada and refuel at mainly coastal locations on the Atlantic coast on their way south to wintering grounds. There are several species, and identification can present some challenges, by studying a combination of behavior, shape, and certain plumage characteristics, the identity of these birds will become much clearer and fun! We will travel to a few coastal sites just south of Boston with the hopes of seeing a variety of these long distance migrants. Program begins and ends at Moose Hill. Instructions and Directions: Bring binoculars and a spotting scope, if you have one, along with your favorite bird identification book or app. Bring drinks, snacks, and lunch. Program begins and ends at Moose Hill. Transportation provided.
