This two-part workshop will introduce you to the jewels of North American birdlife - wood warblers. Learn about the 30-plus species that breed in or pass through Massachusetts, including their vocalizations, migration patterns, nesting and foraging behaviors, and conservation issues. Visit the most productive local migrant traps, including the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, Bald Hill Reservation, and more.
