Things to do In Plymouth MA: Hike, Bike, Camp!

Join us for whip-poor-will spotting and a “Bring Your Own” picnic at the Civilian Conservation Corps Amphitheater, <a>100 yards</a> behind Myles Standish SF headquarters at 6:00PM.

Learn more about these  vocal but elusive birds.

A report from the Albany Pine Bush Preserve says whip-poor-wills are  becoming rare in the northeast .

The <a>bird walk</a> is scheduled for 6:30PM.  We will drive to Cutter Field Road (near Fearing Pond) and walk some of the fields until sundown (at 8:21).

We will place ourselves strategically to  listen to Hermit Thrushes andy give way to Whip-poor-wills as the dusk gets deeper. 

For those interested, we can try for owls afterwards.  One year a “whip” almost landed on my head.  I promise not to move if it happens again.  Someone get an image, please……….

No dogs at this event please.
