This is a group for anyone interested in birdwatching and discovering new places to walk in the Arlington, Woburn, Cambridge, Medford, Concord, Carlise and even Newburyport areas to name a few. All skills are welcome and beginners are encouraged. You will learn to identify the local birds that inhabit and migrate through the area while meeting new friends We also hold free monthly meetings every month from Sept thru May in Arlington where talks are given on for example: travel destinations, scientific data related to birds or photographing birds to name a few. We started this group to meet other people curious about nature and birding. Looking forward to sharing our birding knowledge with everybody.

Rhode Island: More than the Ocean State
With beautiful sandy beaches, over 20 islands, and some of the best seafood around, Rhode Island certainly lives up to the nickname the Ocean State. Large rafts of ducks, migrating shorebirds and coastal migrant traps bring the focus of many birders to the coast as well but, did you know almost 60% of Rhode Island is forest and much of that is protected. In this presentation we’ll discuss some of Rhode Island’s well known birding spots, a few hidden gems and why birds in Rhode Island are important to Massachusetts’s birders. Join us as we discover Rhode Island’s diverse habitats and diverse species of birds that call this small state home
