There won't be plums to be found on Plum Island on the last of April, but how about cornucopia or two of migrant songbirds? Thrushes, sparrows, waterfowl, raptors, the first of the shorebirds and warblers...this part of spring is birders' heaven! Join us for a morning of wandering the dunes and the salt flats, the marsh boardwalks and the woods. We'll meet at the first parking lot past the entrance to Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, in Newbury, MA, at 9:00 a.m. Dress warmly--the wind often whips off the ocean. And drop us an email if you're planning to attend.

Note: There is a fee of $5 per vehicle in order to enter the RefugeCarpooling options are available.
