Butterflies of the Bird World: Introduction to North American Wood Warblers
Each spring, birdwatchers in the United States and Canada eagerly anticipate the arrival of several dozen species of Wood Warblers - small, brightly colored birds that spend the winter for the most part in the tropics of Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.
Learn more about these beautiful birds during Nashua River Watershed Association's free presentation "The Butterflies of the Bird World: Introduction to North American Wood Warblers" Thursday, April 23, from 7to 9 p.m. at NRWA River Resource Center, 592 Main St., Groton.
Presenter will be Mark Archambault, NRWA's Smart Growth Circuit Rider, an avid birder. Learn which species either migrate through or nest in central Massachusetts, as well as handy tips for identifying them in the field. The program will be of interest to both beginning and experienced birders. This program is open to the public; pre-registration is appreciated for planning purposes, but is not required.
