Birding at Bare Cove Park, Hingham, MA

Updated: May 10

Mass Young Birders at Bare Cove Park in August 2021 watch Herring, Ring-billed, Greater Black-backed gulls, Great and Snowy Egrets, a Least Sandpiper, and Gray Catbirds. Check out how our last visit to Bare Cove Park went at our Past Events page.

Bare Cove Park is an old military base turned into a beautiful park with paved trails that wind through tall trees and offer views of the tidal marshes along Weymouth’s Back Bay. Migration will be in full swing, so we’ll take our time combing the trees for species like Yellow Warbler, Red-eyed Vireo, and Scarlet Tanager. We’ll also keep an eye out for migrating shorebirds and other waterbirds. Come spend time with other club members, catch up, meet new friends, and find some birds!

The Mass Young Birders Club will provide refreshments that can be enjoyed on-the-go while birding!

Event Details:

Date: Saturday June, 18, 2022 (Rain date: June 25th)

Time: 9:30 am-11:30 am

Location: End of Bare Cove Park Drive, Hingham, MA

Accessibility information:

We’ll meet at the end of Bare Cove Park Drive where parking is available on the street. Bare Cove Park Drive is accessible by public transit, as it is a 0.5 mile walk from the “West Hingham” stop on the Greenbush Commuter Rail station. Please contact club coordinators by email if you would like to arrange to meet a coordinator at the Rail Station.

This will be an easy hike of 1-2 miles along paved roads. There will be little elevation change, but there may be some damaged spots on the paved road.

Restrooms are available.

COVID precautions:

We will maintain social distancing and shared equipment will be sanitized between use.

What to bring:

Binoculars, telescopes, and field guides will be provided, but feel free to bring your own. Be sure to check the weather before coming to the event. We're guessing it will be most comfortable to be outside with a jacket and hat! Remember your water, sunscreen, and insect repellent.
