First Encounter Beach – Eastham

Eastham - First Encounter Beach Eastham, MA, United States

We will walk along the marsh trail bordered by the Herring River to observe shorebirds, herons, egrets, gulls, and terns gathering in numbers to forage on the outgoing tide. We’ll also encounter other species, including a variety of passerines and raptors. You may want to wear beach sandals or boots. Low tide is about 6:42 [...]
