From Nahant, through Revere and Winthrop, to Belle Isle Marsh Reservation in East Boston, we'll see ducks, loons, grebes, gulls, winter shorebirds such as Purple Sandpipers, and both wintering and late migrant passerines. We might even have the luck to see Black-headed and Mew gulls, King Eiders, Barrow's Goldeneyes, and late or overwintering shorebirds.
