In early April, Massachusetts' North Shore is a wonderful place to observe ducks. Most of the species that have wintered here are still present, and many early migrants have returned to our area. We could see approximately 20 species of ducks, geese, and swans in ths program! We'll bird the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge coastline, estuary, and freshwater impoundments for a variety of waterfowl, including Northern Pintail, Long-tailed Duck, Green-winged Teal, Northern Shoveler, and American Wigeon, to name just a few.
Meet at Joppa Flats Education Center. Wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather and terrain. Bring a field guide, binoculars, and a scope if you have one. Masks are optional outdoors. Participants will travel during the program in their personal vehicles.
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.
