2023 Birder's Meeting

Our CommonWealth of Birds

Sunday, April 2 • 8:00 am-4:00 pm
College of the Holy Cross, Worcester, MA

Our CommonWealth of Birds celebrates the rich diversity of bird species that call Massachusetts and greater New England home. As New Englanders, we are fortunate to have the ability to engage with birds that exhibit both amazing physical, and physiological, adaptations that allow them to thrive in a variety of habitats.

Whether it be the Saltmarsh Sparrow, the pelagic Atlantic Puffin, or the urban Rock Pigeon, all have a fascinating and unique story to share. They also share something in common: all are vulnerable to climate change and its effects on both sea level rise and changes in ocean temperatures. People share these vulnerabilities too.

This year, we will highlight the intricate tapestry that binds birds, people, and environmental pressures together while offering a glimpse at Mass Audubon’s work to preserve, protect, and manage critical habitat.
