Bird lovers take note. The Southborough Open Land Foundation has invited Jeff Collins of Massachusetts Audubon to lead an early-morning bird walk on Saturday. Here are the details from the SOLF Facebook page:
Saturday, May 12th at 7 AM. Join Mass Audubon’s Jeff Collins to learn about birds in the Southborough area. Meet at the triangle area of Main St. (Rte 30) and Northborough Rd. at 7 am. If you prefer, meet at 7:15 at the kiosk at Beals Preserve, but you will miss the introduction that Jeff will present at the triangle. Bring your binoculars!
The walk, which is intended for adults, is free and open to the public. It’s appropriate for birders of all levels or anyone wishing to learn more about bird watching. You’ll be on the lookout for warblers, thrushes, and orioles, as well as breeding species that become active this time of year. The walk will be held rain or shine, so dress accordingly.
