Don't miss your chance to see all the late-fall birds along the rocky coast of Cape Ann - it's one of the best times of year as some are departing and some arriving for winter! We'll visit Halibut, Andrews, and Eastern points as well as Brace Cove, Niles Pond, and the Gloucester Harbor area. Target species will include Red-throated Loon, Red-necked Grebe, Harlequin Duck, Black Guillemot (and maybe other alcids), and three species of scoters.

Instructions and Directions:

Meet at the Fisherman's Statue on Western Avenue in Gloucester. Wear warm clothing and sturdy walking shoes. Bring binoculars, snacks, and a lunch.
