Get out in the woods, watch the birds

Back by Popular Demand
The 2014 Wood-Pawcatuck Watershed Association Winter/Spring Birding Series
Hairy Woodpecker

Starting Saturday, February 8, 2014
local birding expert, Roger Masse, will lead a series of six walks in southern RI to learn about the many bird species that make their winter homes here. These walks are open to anyone interested in birding, from the novice to the expert.   Past participants have greatly enjoyed Roger's easy manner and wealth of knowledge. 

In the winter we will visit some coastal areas to see over wintering ducks and sea birds.  In spring we'll look for woodcocks and early spring migrants. Most walks are on easy trails, but be prepared for cold weather. You must pre-register to find the meeting location. Bring binoculars; field guides are optional. The fee is $5 for WPWA members; $10 nonmembers.
