Spring Bird Walk
May 15 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am
Join the Friends of Newton Cemetery and Manomet for this year’s Bird Walk at Newton Cemetery & Arboretum. Test your skills and pick up some new ones with guides from Manomet’s Landbird Conservation program as they lead the walk once again. Birders of all experience levels are welcome on this leisurely, two-hour walk around the Cemetery’s arboretum in search of migrant warblers, vireos, thrushes, and more!
Scheduled for the peak of spring migration, there will be ample opportunity to brush up on your birding-by-ear techniques, as well as catch a glimpse of breeding males in their most dapper plumage. Changes in climate will be discussed and how Manomet’s long-term research projects bring its effects on migration to light.
Birders of all experience levels are welcome to join us, just come equipped with comfortable walking shoes, binoculars if you have them (we will have a few pairs for sharing), and water. The walk will meet just inside the main gate in front of the office. Parking is available along the cemetery road or chapel parking lot.
Participation is limited, and last years’ program reached capacity so be sure to register early!
