Songbird Migration Field Classes with Peter Trull
The upland and wetland thicket habitats around the West Reservoir at Bell’s Neck Conservation Lands are prime locations to explore in mid-May. The pine/oak/tupelo woodlands and groves of inkberry and highbush blueberry attract migratory songbirds from canopy to forest floor. Join Field Naturalist Peter Trull on a slow, focused quest for spring migrants, with possible sightings of colorful warblers, vireos, tanagers, grosbeaks, and orioles. Learn about the unique adaptations, life history, and habits of each bird species we encounter.
