May Bell's Neck Birding Field Classes
Spring migration is fully underway at Bell’s Neck Conservation Lands. The annual migration of river herring offers the opportunity to witness ospreys swooping, diving, and crashing into the water with long talons, catching fish, and flying off. Black-crowned night herons, killdeer, and snipe are evident along the shores.
Beginning in May, we enjoy the spectacle and excitement of warbler migration, along with scarlet tanagers, vireos, grosbeaks, and flycatchers. Enjoy the melodies of these spring migrants as they flit through trees and thickets, decorating the forest with swirls of color.
Join Naturalist Peter Trull for a field class to immerse yourself in the wonder of birds and experience spring migration in all of its avian beauty.
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.
