The Cape Ann and the Newburyport/Plum Island, MA, areas are prime winter birding locations. We will spend Saturday on Cape Ann's shoreline looking for white-winged gulls, wintering sea ducks such as Harlequins, scoters, eiders and loons as well as other winter visitors like Purple Sandpipers and Guillemot. Sunday will be spent at Newburyport and Plum Island searching for more sea birds, Harriers, Snowy Owl, etc. Monday morning is make-up time where we will pick up any spots and target species missed. By Club policy, this overnight trip is for members, with non- members accommodated if room is available and with the leader's approval.

RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. Contact Gregg Recer by January 28th to reserve a spot and for hotel reservation information.
