If you would like to see some bald eagles and snowy owls, you can join me for a free afternoon bird walk to search primarily for eagles and owls in and around the Newburyport area today. We will search for bald eagles along the Merrimack River as well as snowy and short-eared owls at Plum Island and/or Salisbury. Ducks, raptors and other wintering birds may also be seen. The trip will meet at Bird Watcher’s Supply & Gift at the Route 1 Traffic Circle in Newburyport at 1 p.m. to carpool. This trip is expected to last about 3 hours and preregistration is not necessary, just show up! Dress warmly, and bring binoculars, spotting scopes or field guides if you have them. Beginners and families are welcome. Hope to see you there!
