BOURNE, Mass. – The arrival of winter weather also means an extraordinary array of migratory birds arriving around the Cape! Join the Buzzards Bay Coalition to seek out these winter visitors along the Cape Cod Canal, starting at the Mass Maritime Academy (Academy Dr., Bourne) on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 8:00-10:00 a.m.

With the guidance of experienced birders, you’ll spend the morning at key locations along the Canal viewing the waterbirds that utilize this area as a wintering ground. All levels of birders welcome!
