Upcoming Events

We are running a new trip in January this year to look for Alcids, Fulmar, possible Skuas and any rarities. It is time to sign up now. We need to get enough people registered by the middle of December to run this trip. The captain is very cautious. If it is too cold or windy or choppy, we will postpone it to Sunday, or cancel it with a full refund to those who do sign up. So please SIGN UP NOW! See the pelagics page for further information.

Also, Christmas Bird Count season is fast approaching. Find a count near you!

Buy a Duck Stamp!

The BBC is now selling Duck Stamps and holders.
The current Stamp is valid from July 2015 – June 2016. Entrance to any national wildlife refuge in the United States is free when you show your Stamp.
As birders, we treasure our birding visits to national wildlife refuges locally and nationally. Of the 26 refuges in New England, 11 are in Massachusetts, including Parker River, Monomoy, Great Meadows, Oxbow, and Assabet River. By purchasing a Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp each year, often referred to as the Duck Stamp, we contribute to the purchase or leasing of newly protected lands.
