Birding at The Mount
June 14 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Mass Audubon naturalists Zach Adams and Dale Abrams will lead a free bird walk to explore Edith Wharton’s Berkshire historic home, including its woods, wetlands, and meadows. Learn skills to bird by sight and sound as we look for numerous bird species, including bobolinks, woodpeckers, vireos, and warblers. Walks depart from the main parking lot.
Groups are limited, and Mass Audobon can’t take walk-ins right now, for safety, so you will need to save space ahead. You will need to dress for the weather and prepare for uneven terrain. This is a popular program and tends to sell out well ahead, they say, and they ask everyone please to limit their sign-ups to two dates at a time.
By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
In the 2022 Festival of Contemporary Music, Tanglewood Music Center Fellows will perform a free chamber music concert with works by Carlos Simon and more.
