Join Wellfleet Bay for sociable and educational birding talks this winter. The program series, which kicks off with Cheep Eats: Fantastic Feeder Birds, will offer armchair birding and a cheap lunch—because you're invited to bring your own brown bag! Warm beverages and sweet treats will be provided.
