Come birdwatching with us on a Saturday morning! Essex County is an especially exciting place to find a wide variety of birds throughout the year. We'll take two hours to explore the most interesting birdwatching locations each time, focusing on the ever-changing birds of the season as they migrate through our area.

All experience levels welcome!
