Winter Birds at Barton Cove & Turners Falls Canal Nature Walk
Waterfowl, Gulls, and Eagles at the Turners Falls Power Canal and Barton Cove
Sunday, February 16, 2020, 3:30-5:30 pm
Join wildlife ecologist Pat Serrentino and naturalist Ted Watt at the Turners Falls Power Canal and Barton Cove to observe waterfowl and gulls as they fly in to roost for the evening. This area hosts a variety of waterfowl and gulls, including common and hooded mergansers, common goldeneye, and Canada geese. Mixed flocks of gulls are common, and we may see several lesser-known species. One or two bald eagles may make an appearance.
This is an easy walk along the canal on a paved road; we’ll visit Barton Cove if time and weather permit. Please dress for cold and windy weather; sturdy footwear and binoculars are recommended.
The walk is free and geared to adults and children over 10 yrs. Heavy rain or snow cancels. Registration begins Monday, February 10. To register, please call Edie Heinemann at 773-465-1646, or email us.
