Shorebird migration is in full swing by late August on the mudflats, salt marsh, pond edges, and sandy beaches around Plum Island and Newburyport. Along with regulars like semipalmated sandpiper, black-bellied plover, and white-rumped sandpiper, possibilities include stilt sandpiper, Hudsonian godwit, American golden-plover and more. Bring binoculars, spotting scope if you have one, lunch, drinks, and snacks. Loaner binoculars are available and leaders will have spotting scopes. Transportation provided from Drumlin Farm.
