Spring Bird Migration on the North Shore: AVIS 125

Thursday, May 16, 2019

What is spring migration? Everyone knows that birds arrive, but what about the ones that pass through? The North Shore of Massachusetts has many designated Important Bird Areas, designated because they are vital to migrating birds that use the coast as a key stop during or destination of their annual migrations. This incredible flow of millions of birds represents the biological wealth of our hemisphere, but more than that, the individuals that comprise spring migration are irreplaceable physical links in the ecosystems people depend on well beyond our borders. In a one-hour slide presentation, David Moon, Mass Audubon Sanctuary Director, Joppa Flats Education Center, will show participants where, when, and how birds flow through our region, how to see them, and why they matter.
