Birdwatch with us every Friday morning from August through November! Get an early start on the day when many birds are most active and therefore easier to see. We'll explore the most likely places to see migrating and resident birds, including Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, Oak Hill Cemetery, Pikes Bridge Road, Martin Burns Wildlife Management Area, and Salisbury Beach State Reservation, focusing on songbirds, shorebirds, and raptors as they migrate south through our area.
All levels of experience are welcome.
