14 Feb Feb. 14 – Learn to Love Bald Eagles
Date: Friday, February 14th
Time: 8:30 am – 11:00 am
Meeting Location: Cashman Park Boat Ramp at the end of Sally Snyder Way off Merrimac Street in Newburyport- some carpool needed
Each winter, Bald Eagles from northern New England move south to the lower Merrimack River which provides perfect, winter habitat for these majestic birds. These spectacular birds soar high over the water and then stoop to secure prey with their sharp talons. Join Newburyport Birders for biscotti & hot chocolate as we discuss the Merrimack River’s protected islands and the field marks of the Bald Eagle. We’ll begin our search for our national symbol on foot; then we’ll carpool to several sites along the river. Dress in layers and wear warm, waterproof boots.
