Join Buzzards Bay Coalition and experienced birder Nate Marchessault for an exploration along Cape Cod Canal in search of seabirds. We’ll spend the morning at key locations along the Canal viewing the waterbirds that utilize this area as a wintering ground. All levels of birders welcome!

A warm coat, hat, and gloves are highly recommended.

We will meet at Mass Maritime Academy, where we can search for seabirds as we wait for all the group to arrive. We will travel to different locations along the canal, so if you are coming with family or friends, please carpool if possible.
