The Open Space Preservation Commission is hosting a free Bird Walk. The walk takes place at Breakneck Hill this Saturday, May 16 from 7:00 to 9:00 am. The event is geared to adults but open to anyone.

Mass Audubon’s Jeff Collins will lead the way. From OSPC:

Among the many birds we’ll encounter you can expect to see Bluebirds, Warblers, Baltimore Orioles and the Indigo Bunting pictured above.

We will learn about the different birds that use the various habitats at BHCL, including wetlands, forest, shrublands, grasslands and meadows. We also will learn how to identify birds by their songs.

Bring your Binoculars and Birding Id book, and dress appropriately for tick and poison ivy prevention.

Meet in the Breakneck Hill Conservation Land parking lot at 7AM
