Join WLT members as we are lead by a professional local birder who will take us along a stretch of the Charles River frequented by ducks and other winter avian friends.

Spring isn’t the only time to see birds: from November to March, a variety of northern-dwelling ducks come south from Canada to winter on our waterways. From diving ducks to dabbling ducks, from the diminutive Ruddy Duck, to the elaborate Hooded Merganser (the parrot of the ponds), come see what’s living in Waltham, and where to find them. We'll hope to see Common and Hooded Mergansers, Ringnecks, Mallards, and Wood Ducks.

Bring binoculars if you have them and dress warmly.
Please note that participants must be able to be quiet and observant.

The walk will be led by local birder Jason Forbes.
