Both the sanctuary and the Blue Hills Reservation host a wide variety of birds year-round. Join us on an upcoming birding program or go birding on your own. Whichever you choose, bring the checklist of birds you might see during your visit! 

Share Your Checklist

After your visit, take a few minutes to submit your bird sightings to Mass Audubon's eBird page, a collaboration with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
