Explore different hot spots along the Atlantic coastline for a variety of winter birdlife. We'll scan the ocean's surface for winter ducks, loons, grebes, and alcids; look over the marsh for eagles, harriers, and falcons; and check the sand dunes for Snowy Owls.
All birding levels welcome. This program meets for three hours every Friday, with a different meeting place each week.
