Summary

Be amazed at the beauty of visiting waterfowl along the Charles River.

Description

From November to March, a variety of northern-dwelling ducks come south from Canada to winter on our unfrozen waterways. We’ll walk along the Charles River trail upstream to several viewing platforms and the DCR boardwalk along the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation before turning back at Moody Street. Expert birders of the WLT, some equipped with scopes, will (hopefully) help us identify hooded and common mergansers, ring-necks, golden eyes, ruddy ducks and other waterfowl described on this sheet. If we’re lucky, we might even see an eagle or two soaring above! Bring cameras and binoculars. All participants should dress for the weather with footwear appropriate for icy conditions. Postponed if heavy snow is falling. Call the WLT office at 782-893-3355 or check this website if snow is in the forecast.
