Winter Birding at Sachuest Point


Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge is one of a few “hot” winter birding spots in Rhode Island. Winter specialties include Horned Larks, Snow Buntings, Northern Harriers, Purple Sandpipers, and a variety of sea ducks. The stars of the show are Harlequin Ducks, and in some years Snowy Owls. We’ll meet in the refuge parking lot, and then head for the shore to look for waterfowl and other winter residents of the rocky seashore and scrubby coastal habitats. Be sure to dress for the cold and the wind.

If you are coming from South County and want to carpool, meet at the Jamestown Bridge park & ride on Boston Neck Road (Rte 1-A) in North Kingstown. We’ll depart from there at 9:45 am sharp.
