Thornton Burgess Nature Program- Winter Birding led by Brittany Hoffnagle
With the changing of the seasons, there is a changing of the birds present in our area as well. Enjoy a bird walk focusing on discovering where the migrant visitors spend their winter. We will walk along the Cape Cod Canal to observe birds we only get to enjoy during the colder months on Cape Cod. We will meet in front of the Army Corps of Engineers Cape Cod Canal Visitor Center near the Sandwich Marina. Dressing in warm layers is encouraged, along with binoculars.
