January Cold Brook Birding Field Classes
Please join Field Naturalist and author Peter Trull in January for a birding field class at the Robert F. Smith Cold Brook Preserve. Practice species identification and learn about the natural history and unique adaptations of each bird seen and heard. You’ll learn birding basics from an expert and likely see some species for the first time. In the winter months, we watch for waterfowl, including ducks and geese, plus songbirds, hawks, and maybe even an eagle. This will be a true learning experience.
Dress appropriately with a warm hat and gloves. Birding in the depth of winter is enlightening in many ways, and patience pays off. Bring your binoculars.
Peter Trull has been involved in Research and Education for over 45 years. He holds a Master’s Degree in Education and has written nine books about Cape Cod natural history. His most recent book Birds of Paradox-The Life of Terns was released in spring 2019. His upcoming book, Cape Cod – Once Around the Sun, is a tribute to John Hay and his 1961 classic Nature’s Year.
