October is a time of transition, with late fall migrants joined by newly arrived wintering species. We will visit Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, Cherry Hill Reservoir, Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm, and other productive sites looking for shorebirds, ducks, loons, grebes, raptors, and sparrows including Hudsonian Godwit, Merlin, Horned Lark, American Pipit, Clay-colored Sparrow, and more. Lunch, not included in fee, will be at a heated restaurant.
Park at Environmental Learning Center; drive past the main parking lot and through the gate, spaces are on the right. Please call Strickland Wheelock, 508-265-2896, on the morning of the program if you are unable to make it.
