Introduction to the Birds at Cogswell's Grant
Sponsored by Joppa Flats Education Center and Historic New England
Tue, May 15, 2012 8:30 am - 10:30 am
Location: Essex, MA
Instructor: Bill Gette - Joppa Flats Sanctuary Director
Members: Adult $10.00
Nonmembers: Adult $14.00
The beautiful 165-acre Cogswell's Grant in Essex offers a variety of habitats that attract many species of birds. During mid-May, many breeding birds such as bobolinks and Baltimore orioles have already returned to our fields and forests to nest, while many others are still migrating through our area en route to their more northerly breeding grounds.
Join Bill Gette for a leisurely morning or evening walk through the grant. During the walk, we will discuss the many aids to field identification, identify birds by their vocalizations, and discuss breeding behavior. The grasslands, salt marshes, and woodlands of Cogswell's Grant are a treasure trove for birders. Coffee and refreshments will be served, and the historic house will be open to participants for a brief tour. The member price applies to members of Mass Audubon and Historic New England.
Instructions and Directions: Meet at Cogswell's Grant on Spring Street in Essex. Please dress for the weather and bring binoculars.
