Join Merrymeeting Audubon on the search for wintering birds on this all-day outing to coastal Massachusetts.

First stop is Salisbury Beach State Park, where we will look for wintering ducks, loons and grebes, and Short-eared Owls. Iceland and Glaucous Gulls will be the target birds in Newburyport.

Then on to the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge on Plum Island to see Snowy Owls, Snow Buntings and more waterfowl. Dress warmly and bring lunch.
