Visit a national historic landmark that has been a mecca for bird and birdwatchers since its founding in 1831. May is Mount Auburn's glory month, with an impressive variety of spring migrants that rest and feed at the cemetery while on their way to breeding grounds in northern New England and Canada. Your expert guide will help you spot vibrantly colored scarlet tanagers and listen for the sweet songs of Baltimore orioles. A great activity for a late Mother's Day!
Program involves walking along easy terrain with periods of standing. Bring binoculars if you have them, or borrow ours.
