Event Description: 

Bring your binoculars, cheat sheet from the Warm Up, and check out the wintering waterfowl on the Waltham Land Trust 8th Annual Duck Walk. Birds from Canada visit our "warmer" climate in winter, and they love the Charles River. We'll walk along the path next to the river and stop at viewing platforms on our way to Moody Street and back, crossing over the new boardwalk along the Charles River Museum of Industry. Last year we saw two bald eagles before leaving the parking lot! Hooded and common mergansers, ring neck ducks, golden eyes, and all sorts of beautiful avian creatures grace the Charles' icy waters. Download and bring this sheet of common birds of the Charles River to help with identification. Everyone will meet in back corner of Shaw's, 130 River Street, Waltham, MA. Dress warmly and bring binoculars!  If you have any questions, email Sonja Wadman at WLT.
