Hike to the summit of Mount Holyoke with special focus on the bird song surrounding us. This is a particularly rich birding location as species change with both elevation and habitat. Possible species include Cerulean, Worm-eating, Magnolia, and Black-throated Blue warblers, Louisiana Waterthrush, Yellow-throated Vireo, Winter Wren, Indigo Bunting, and more.

Open to ages 14 and above with an adult
