An often overlooked gift from the glaciers, Block Island is approximately 12 miles off the Rhode Island coast and feels a bit like you've travelled back in time. With over 50% of the island protected, the dramatic coastline, rolling hills, hidden kettle ponds, and salt marsh are a resting and feeding place for migrating shorebirds, songbirds, and ocean birds. Although small, this beautiful island offers a number of different habitats and spectacular scenery. In the fall, the island belongs primarily to the birds and birders. The island also forms a natural trap for land birds that have wandered out over the ocean during their southward migration. We expect to see a variety of warblers, raptors, herons, shorebirds, and more.
