Field Trips and Citizen Science

Fieldtrips are led by experienced volunteers. Field trips may be more general or concentrate on looking for certain types of birds (e.g., owls, shorebirds, waterfowl, raptors, vagrants).

We recommend newcomers check weather conditions and dress appropriately. Much of bird watching involves watching, not walking. When in doubt, dress warmly. Bring binoculars or spotting scopes if you have them.
