Cape Ann is one of the best locations you'll find along the New England coast to observe winter seabirds. Traveling through Gloucester and Rockport, we'll see many species of sea ducks, loons, grebes, and gulls as they feed and seek shelter in the cape's many coves, inlets, and protected harbors. Target species include Iceland Gull, Red-necked Grebe, Red-throated Loon, Razorbill, Harlequin Duck, Northern Gannet, and Purple Sandpiper.
Meet at the Fisherman's Statue on Western Avenue in Gloucester. Bring binoculars and a field guide to birds. Wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather and terrain.
We will travel by carpool, with masks recommended but not mandatory. Masks indoors and outdoors are optional.
