Delve into Cape Cod's rich ornithological history while observing a diversity of bird species during the peak of fall migration. Field trips will include productive birding sites that also have historical significance. Lean about early accounts of the bird life of the region, changes in habitat and avian distribution, and the legacy of the Austin Ornithological Field Station, which once occupied the land that is now Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. Field walks are complemented by virtual online presentations, and a bird banding demonstration is also scheduled.
