Celebrate the arrival of spring by learning about our region’s many bird species!
Join us on guided bird walks on the Lane Property. Come explore with us to discover the bird species that use this beautiful property.
These walks are being led by Jeffrey Ambs and sponsored by the Foxboro Conservation Commission, the Foxboro Recreation Department, and Moose Hill Audubon Sanctuary.
Are you ready to explore into the wonderful world of watching birds? Or have you watched birds for awhile, but wish to expand your knowledge about birds?
This workshop provides an introduction to birds, identification, and habitats. Learn the basics about birding and bird watching. Where should I go? How do I know what I am seeing? Is that a bird I hear?
Requirements : Enthusiasm, an interest in the outdoors, birds, and learning.
Materials: A keen eye or ear. Binoculars are not required, but are a plus.
Note that binoculars are not required, but are very helpful for this workshop. If you do not have your own, but can borrow them for the workshop, that would be helpful. We will discuss binoculars as part of the classroom portion of the workshop.

Mass Audubon Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary, in Sharon, is proud to support this program brought to you by Jeffrey Ambs, who has been birding on and off for 45 years. Jeff became interested in birding at a young age during scouting and on summer field trips. He remembers seeing a bald eagle and wild turkeys at Quabbin Reservoir, and a snowy owl back in the early 70s.
