This tour will take us on an extensive exploration of Cape Cod and southern Rhode Island. Winter is a great time to visit these areas to look for New England's resident species and any continuing winter rarities that have been discovered. Species we will be looking for include: Common Murre, Black-legged Kittiwake, Iceland Gull, Long-tailed Duck, Common Eider, and many, many more.
Cape Cod has some of the best sea watching on the East Coast. The geographic cape sticks out far off the Massachusetts mainland making it ideal for viewing seabirds from shore. We will spend a few nights on the cape exploring its barrier beaches, saltmarshes, and maritime forests. These unique habitats will hold a good mix of resident species, wintering birds, and lingering migrants. Cape Cod is also home to some very charming villages that are as fascinating to explore as are the unique landscapes. We will stop at the famous Birdwatcher's General Store in Orleans to chat about birds and see the latest in birding gear. Next on the agenda is a trip to the Southern Rhode Island coast, which recently has been on a hot streak with rarities such as Common Cuckoo, Little Stint and Terek Sandpiper. You never know what you might find in the countries smallest state. This five night tour is sure to net us great birds, wonderful beach views, and great seafood.
