Test your skills and pick up some new ones this spring with guides from Manomet’s Landbird Conservation program as they lead this year’s Newton Cemetery Bird Walk on Wednesday, May 15 at 7am. Birders of all experience levels are welcome on this 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. Participation is limited, and last years’ program reached capacity so be sure to register early!
Come equipped with comfortable shoes, binoculars (we will provide a few pairs to share), and water. The walk will meet just inside the main gate in front of the office at the Newton Cemetery (791 Walnut Street Newton Center). Parking is available along the cemetery road or chapel parking lot.
