Tag along on this very popular walk where we see visiting waterfowl on the Charles River, and many permanent avian residents soaring above it!

Between November and March, a variety of birds visit from Canada and elsewhere north to the icy-but-still-moving Charles River, and we are delighted to point them out to our supporters! Bring binoculars, or look through one of our scopes, and you'll be amazed to see hooded mergansers, ring necked ducks, golden eyes, ruddy ducks and others. We'll stroll along the paved path that abuts the Charles and look for other wildlife like turtles and bald eagles when we pause at the viewing decks on our way to Moody Street and back. The trail might be icy (it doesn't get treated), so please wear appropriate footwear. We cancel only if heavy snow is falling. Dress warmly because there is a great deal of standing around. For this reason, children aren't encouraged to attend. Dogs are not allowed on this walk as they might scare away the birds. Thanks for understanding!
