Aquidneck Island in Rhode Island features ponds, grasslands, ocean, and beach habitats that are excellent for winter birding. The area is famous for wintering ducks including Barrow's Goldeneye, Harlequin Duck, Northern Shoveler, and Northern Pintail. With the variety of habitats Snow Bunting, Red-throated Loon, Red-necked Grebe, shorebirds, and several raptors are also possible. On every previous trip, we've found outstanding rarities in this area and anticipate another successful day this December.
Also open to teens age 14 and older with an adult.
