Thornton Burgess Nature Program-Birding led by Alice Wynn
This class will open with a 40-minute lecture on the natural history, behavior, and general biology of bird species native to Cape Cod, focusing specifically on the types of birds frequently found in the habitats surrounding the Green Briar Nature Center and Smiling Pool. Following this, we will take a hike on Green Briar’s trails, identifying and observing the species we encounter by sight and sound. Long pants, appropriate footwear, bug spray, and a hat are highly recommended, along with binoculars and/or a camera with high zoom capabilities.
