Bald Eagle Tour Schedule

LEARN TO LOVE BALD EAGLES

Date: Friday, February 14, 2014
Time: 3:00 pm - dusk
Fee: $25.
Meeting Location: Newburyport's Cashman Park Boat Launch at the end of Sally Snyder Way which is off Merrimac Street
Join us as we search for Bald Eagles, our national symbol. Each winter, Bald Eagles from northern New England move south to the lower Merrimack River which provides perfect, winter habitat for these majestic birds. We'll discuss the field marks, bill size and shape, cere and talons, eyes and their hunting style, flight speed and altitude, their plumage and more. We'll be along the Merrimack River's edge, and we'll be walking on snow and unimproved surfaces. Dress in layers for outdoor weather, including waterproof boots, wool socks, hat and gloves. If you have binoculars, please bring them; if not, we have loaners. Bring along friends and introduce them to the joys of birding.  We will carpool to a few sites if needed.
