Monthly Bird Walks Through the Winter


Sunday, January 27, 2019, 9:00am to 10:30am


Arborway Gate, Arnold Arboretum, 125 Arborway, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130
Join Arnold Arboretum's Brendan Keegan for an easy walk looking for winter birds. In January, Brendan will discuss how species alter their behaviors, diets, and/or bodies to survive the colder temperatures. For his February walk that meets at the Bussey Street Gate, you will listen for, and discuss bird calls, and talk about owl mating season. The March walk on St. Patrick's Day will be a talk about breeding behaviors, the competitive reality of bird song, and include a check on Chickadee nesting tubes for signs of activity.

All skill levels, especially beginners, are encouraged to join. Bring binoculars, and a few binoculars will be available to share.

See our website for directions and a checklist of birds. Parking is along the Arborway for Arborway Gate walk meet up, and along Bussey Street for the February Walk, or take the T to Forest Hills and walk. Meet inside the Gates.
