Early May heralds the beginning of the ‘high season’ of spring migration, when many species of neo-tropical migrant birds including warblers, vireos, orioles, flycatchers, swallows and others start to arrive in Massachusetts.  To see some of these migrants and learn more about birds of our region, the public is invited to join Mark Archambault of Nashua River Watershed Association (NRWA) for a free “Spring Bird Walk” Saturday, May 7, 7-10:30 a.m. 

After meeting at NRWA’s River Resource Center, 592 Main St. (Rt. 119), Groton at 7 a.m., participants will bird one or more locations in Groton, including Surrenden Farm/General Fields and either Nashua River Rail Trail or Groton Woods.

Bring binoculars, a field guide, drinks and snacks for a few hours, and dress appropriately for a field walk including sturdy shoes and mosquito/tick bite protection. Children over 10 are welcome accompanied by an adult.  In the event of a steady rain Saturday, event will be held the next day,  Sunday, May 8.

Program is free and open to the public; pre-registration appreciated for planning purposes, but not required.  For more info, contact Mark Archambault, NRWA Smart Growth Circuit Rider, at (978) 448-0299, or email  Learn more at
