Plum Island Shorebirds

August 24 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

$58 - $70

Shorebird migration is in full swing by late August, with both good numbers and a diverse assortment of species. Plum Island and the Newburyport area are graced with extensive mudflats, salt marsh, pond edges, and sandy beaches which provide essential feeding and roosting areas. We will share identification tips and information about the birds’ natural history. Along with regulars like semipalmated sandpiper, black-bellied plover, and yellowlegs, we have a good chance of stilt and white-rumped sandpipers. Other possibilities include Hudsonian godwit, American golden plover, and American oystercatcher.

Open to adults and youth age 15 or older with an adult.
