Given that we were birding in late August, our guide had a challenge finding *many* birds. However, he was very knowledgeable about birding and he was also very good at explaining basics to the beginners in the group. On this trip, which started near the...More

We went birding with the guide from the Nature Center. He was prepared and presented interesting commentary. We did see a number of birds on the walk. We stayed in the harbor area and on the Shore path.
