Join us for a birding adventure to historic Nantucket Island. The heathlands, moors, vast beaches, and rolling ocean surf are captivating in the winter light, and, with the island pleasantly deserted, it's the perfect time for our visit. Long-tailed Ducks, numbering in the hundreds of thousands, winter off the Nantucket Shoals. Rafts of other seabirds including ducks, loons, alcids, and grebes can be observed from many vantage points. On previous trips, we have seen large numbers of Northern Gannets diving offshore, and have found unusual species such as Lesser Black-backed and Black-headed gulls, Eurasion Wigeon, and even a Painted Bunting. We'll also focus on the island's owls and look and listen for Barn, Short-eared, Snowy, and Saw-whet owls. This is an ideal trip for both beginning and experienced birders.
