Male songbirds sport their brightest plumage and finest song in the spring. Usually inconspicuous, quiet, and difficult to see, birds' characteristic songs often help you to identify the bird, or at least help pinpoint its location. We'll talk about how and why birds sing songs and take a walk using our ears first, then our eyes.

Instructions and Directions:

Meet at Joppa Flats Education Center. From there we will travel by Mass Audubon vans and carpool. Bring binoculars, a field guide to birds, and a scope if you have one. Wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather and terrain.

Mass Audubon and the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge encourage carpooling to reduce the number of vehicles. Participants who choose not to carpool by driving without at least one passenger will be surcharged $5.00.

Mass Audubon requires participants and leaders to wear masks while in vehicles.

Mass Audubon Cancellation Policy: If you wish to withdraw less than seven days prior to the program, refunds cannot be issued. If we cancel the program, you will be refunded in full.

Registration is required.
