With permission of the airport manager, we will get onto the airport grasslands inside the fences to look and listen for Grasshopper, Vesper, Field, and Savannah Sparrows as well as Upland Sandpiper. Note: This trip may be canceled due to homeland security issues. *This trip is co-sponsored with the Brookline Bird Club.
This is a mostly forested habitat interspersed with small farm fields. This park is very close to the coast and has been a productive place for spring migration. We’ll be on the lookout for the later arriving passerines, concentrating on warblers and flycatchers.
This former farm, owned by Wildlands Trust, is now a mix of open fields, thickets, and woodlands. This property has a well-maintained trail system and an observation tower overlooking a large wetland area. We will search for warblers and other spring migrants.
Looking for migrants along the Billings Farm Loop. Nice place to work on your “birding by ear” skills. Let’s find what Glenn can hear! *This trip is co-sponsored with the Brookline Bird Club.
We will walk on flat trails, which can be very muddy; rubber boots are a good idea! Bring bug spray as mosquitoes can be pesky in this forested floodplain with remnant marsh. Migrants should still be around, breeders include Blue-winged Warbler, Northern Waterthrush, Rosebreasted Grosbeak among others.
Join Kathy for a pre-work romp through Wompatuck in search of migrants and summer residents.
Spend the morning exploring local patches in Medfield and Millis, looking for passerines and marsh birds in a variety of habitat. Locations include Causeway Street in Millis, the Medfield State Hospital grounds and other lesser-known patches. A mix of species can be expected, including Yellow-throated Vireo and the possibility of rails and other marsh inhabitants. Moose
We will look for shorebirds. Nesting terns should be setting up nest sites with accompanying courtship flights.
This 4-mile loop through three contiguous properties boasts large numbers of migrants and breeders. Conditions permitting, expect to see a variety of warblers, as well as orioles, vireos, swallows, and tanagers.
Search for migrants at one of the premiere “migrant traps” in the state.
