Description: The Cape Cod Canal is one of New England's most unique habitats for birds. This deep and narrow human-made channel attracts large numbers of migratory sea ducks, loons, grebes, and alcids. Parks on either side of the canal host overwintering landbirds, winter shorebirds, and sometimes rare species like the Snowy Owl. The famous railroad bridge is even attractive to Peregrine Falcons. This two-part class features a Wednesday evening (Feb.20) talk and accompanying Sunday (Feb 24) field trip. In the lecture, we will talk about the history of the canal and why birds find this artificial habitat so attractive. Our field trip will explore both sides of the canal via various state and local parks.
