This year, for the first time, the Friends of Fresh Pond Reservation's December bird walk will coincide with the National Audubon Society’s 114th annual Christmas Bird Count. Fresh Pond is important to the CBC because it is the only location where several of the diving duck species are found. We will join tens of thousands of other birders throughout the Americas who identify and count all of the birds they see on one specific day in one area. Audubon and other organizations use data collected in this longest-running wildlife census to assess the health of bird populations - and to help guide conservation action. We will use a telescope to look at waterfowl on Fresh Pond, and binoculars to see other birds. Beginners are welcome.  We have binoculars to lend and will show you how to use them.

Please register for this event.

You will receive directions and information on parking when you register.
