Join Mass Young Birders at Squantum Point Park for a morning of spotting sea ducks, looking for songbirds, and catching up with other young birders!

In November, the boom of fall migration is coming to an end, but there is still plenty to see! As trees lose their leaves and colors begin to fade, birds with even the slightest bit of color become a little more noticeable. We'll also keep an eye out for sea birds using the Atlantic flyway who are heading south from Arctic breeding grounds. Some of the birds are just passing through, but others are here to stay!


WHERE: Squantum Point Park, Quincy, MA. Parking is free. For google maps directions, click here. We will meet at the Northwest corner of the parking lot that looks towards Boston.


WHEN: Saturday, November 19, 9 AM - 11 AM.

RAIN DATE: Saturday, November 26, 9 AM - 11 AM.


WHAT TO BRING: Plenty of layers! We will be by the ocean and it can get windy. Hats, gloves and comfortable walking shoes are also encouraged. Although we are well past Summer, sunscreen is still recommended.
