Thousands of scoters, loons, eiders, and many arctic avians come to our inshore waters off Montauk Point each winter to feed on the vegetation and invertebrates that live on the ocean floor. Here we will scan the ocean surface with our scopes and try to identify these arctic visitors as they dive for food and frolic in the surf. Bring binoculars and a field guide to birds of the Eastern United States (if you have one). This program is for adults; however, children ages 10 and older, who have binoculars, may attend.
Reservations are required for all events. Participants must call (631) 537-9735 for reservations and information about meeting places.
