Step into the early spring wetlands for exciting opportunities to see early migration waterbirds like ducks, herons, and sparrows. We will begin our journey at Canoe Meadows and travel to a few locations in and around the Housatonic Wildlife Management Area. Focusing on how to find early birds in wetlands, we will discuss the songs, calls, and intricate behaviors of wetland birds.
Dress for the weather and prepare for uneven and wet terrain. Waterproof boots are a good option for footwear. Bring your own binoculars and spotting scope. Snowshoes or other traction assistance may be required depending on conditions; a limited number may be available for loan (call 413-637-0320 to reserve).
