The mix of winter birds and spring migrants makes late March a great time to bird Parker River National Wildlife Refuge and Cape Ann. We will explore the coves, open ocean, beaches, and thickets of Cape Ann looking for seabirds, waterfowl, sparrows, and shorebirds. We expect flocks of Harlequin Duck, Purple Sandpiper, scoters, and possibly a King Eider mixed in the crowds. This time of year, the grebes, loons, and alcids develop breeding plumage - a sight that we have a small window to see. Snowy Owls are often still around at Parker River and the salt pannes and Hellcat are usually filled with wintering and spring ducks. Newburyport bay should be filled with Long-tailed Duck, scaup, goldeneyes & loons preparing to fly north.

This program is also open to teens ages 14 and older with an adult.

Instructions and Directions:

Please dress warmly and wear waterproof, insulated footwear. The group will meet at Drumlin Farm and travel in Mass Audubon vehicles. Lunch is not included in the price, but will be in a heated restaurant.
