Program spotlights bald eagles

Sunday Afternoon With Bald Eagles

Sunday, March 3, 3:30 p.m. to dusk

Fee: $25

Meet at Newburyport’s Cashman Park boat launch. It is at the end of Sally Snyder Way, off of Merrimac Street.

Join in the search for bald eagles, our national symbol. Each winter, bald eagles from northern New England move south to the lower Merrimack River which provides perfect, winter habitat for these majestic birds.

The group will discuss the field marks, bill size and shape, cere and talons, eyes and their hunting style, flight speed and altitude, their plumage and more. The tour will move along the Merrimack River’s edge, and will be walking on snow and unimproved trails. Dress in layers for outdoor weather including waterproof boots, wool socks, hat and gloves. Bring binoculars if you have them. Some carpooling may be required.
