Wednesday, July 31, 6:30–8:45 p.m. in Woburn, MA
Limited to 100 participants

With their diverse adaptations, varied habitats, marvelous migrations, and often confusing plumages, shorebirds are a perennial favorite among birders in New England. More than two dozen shorebird species visit our coastal beaches, salt marshes, and muddy lake shores during autumn migration each year.

This workshop will examine the natural history of shorebirds within an ecological context that considers their classification, identification, breeding ecology, migration, and conservation. Specific reference will be made to the importance of Massachusetts to the conservation of shorebirds in the Western Hemisphere. An associated walk will be held the morning of Saturday, August 3, at Parker River NWR.

The walk is limited to 20 people, with priority given to BBC members and workshop attendees.

Cost: $15 for both events for BBC Members or $10 for one; $25 for both events for non-members or $20 for one. To reserve a space, email and send a check for the full amount made out to Brookline Bird Club Agent to Diana Fruguglietti, 5 Ellen Road, Woburn, MA, 01801. Meeting locations will be sent to attendees upon registration.
