Signs of Spring
Next Scheduled Program:
Sunset Birding at Salisbury Beach State Reservation
Time: to sunset
Meeting Location: At the boat ramp parking lot at Salisbury Beach State Reservation
Wintering waterfowl are abundant at Salisbury Beach State Reservation. Common Eiders and all three scoter species are often in rafts. Loons and grebes are easily observed. Purple Sandpipers gather on the jetties at high tide; Iceland and Glaucous Gulls can also be seen. We’ll search the campground area, a prime area for Horned Larks, Lapland Longspurs and Snow Buntings. The pines along the marsh edge are great for harboring wintering owls. At low tide on Badger’s Rocks, we usually see Harbor Seals hauled out.
With best wishes,
