Sparrows and other "little brown jobs" (LBJs) can be confusing to many birders. Together we'll work on sparrow identification and clear up some of the confusion, as we study individual birds to distinguish characteristic field marks of various species. We'll travel by van and carpool to visit several locations that are known for locating a diversity of sparrows and other LBJs.

Instructions and Directions:

Meet at Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary. Bring binoculars and a field guide to birds. Wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather and muddy terrain.

Masks are required indoors and in vans; they are optional outdoors. Anyone wishing to travel in a Mass Audubon vehicle must bring their vaccination record (actual or photo) for visual confirmation.

Please note our NEW CANCELLATION POLICY: If cancellations are made less than 7 days prior to the program, refunds cannot be issued.

Registration is required.
