Rhode Island: Block Island Birding Weekend

Although small, this beautiful island offers a number of different habitats and spectacular scenery. In the fall, the island belongs primarily to the birds and birders. It is a resting and feeding place for migrating shorebirds and ocean birds. The island also forms a natural trap for land birds that have wandered out over the ocean during their southward migration. We expect to see a variety of warblers, raptors, herons, shorebirds, and of course - the unexpected.
