Cape Cod Bird Club Bird Walks for April

Four different walks to choose

The Cape Cod Bird Club invites you to join a Birdwatching Walk in April.  All walks are free and open to all. Please contact the walk leader to reserve a spot.


High Head/Pilgrim Heights – N. Truro

Ed Hoopes, [email protected] or 508-737-7479 – Saturday, April 1, 8AM

Meet at the Salt Pond Visitors Center.  We will hop into cars to consolidate our “convoy,” and of course decrease our carbon footprint!  We’ll start at High Head, then walk the bike path and trails in hopes for rail, bobwhite, seabirds and passerines.

Bell’s Neck Conservation Area – Harwich

Stefanie Paventy, [email protected] or 203-415-1956 – Saturday, April 15, 7AM

Meet at Bell’s Neck Road at the landing of the West Reservoir.  We will explore some hidden mixed woodland and some old cranberry bogs for passerines.  We will also look for ducks and shorebirds in the open water.  Please be prepared for swampy conditions.

Fort Hill – Eastham

Judith Davis, [email protected] or 508-432-3780(h)/508-221-2322(c) – Saturday, April 22, 8AM

Enjoy Earth Day by joining us for a walk along the loop trail at Fort Hill in Eastham.  We will then watch the marsh for incoming shorebirds, and hopefully a bittern and/or rail, while the tide rises.  High tide will be at 9:01AM.  Meet in the lower parking lot on Fort Hill Road.  You may want to wear waterproof boots.

Manomet Area – Plymouth

Brian Harrington, [email protected] or 774-487-2683 – Sunday, April 23, 7AM

Join us on this off-Cape adventure!  We will meet at the commuter parking lot next to Friendly’s at the mainland end of the Sagamore Bridge (intersection at routes 3 and 6).  We will search Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences and Manomet Point for seabirds and migrating passerines. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
