Things To Do

Birding at The Mount


Jun 5, 2018 to Sep 25, 2018
08:00 AM until 10:00 AM

This event occurs weekly, on Tuesday.


Starting at The Mount’s Historic Stable, venture through Edith Wharton’s original estate guided by one of Mass Audubon’s naturalists. Exploring woods, wetlands and meadows you’ll learn the skills for birding by sight and song as we look for numerous bird species, including bobolinks, bald eagles, vireos, and wood warblers. Following the two-hour walk, join us on The Terrace and compare your findings over a cup of coffee.

Whether you are an experienced birder or new to the hobby all are welcome. Binoculars and bird books will be provided by Mass Audubon but please feel free to bring your own. Proper hiking attire and footwear, bug spray, and water bottles are highly recommended.

Please note that this tour is not suitable for wheelchairs and includes steep and uneven terrain.

This program is offered in partnership with Mass Audubon Berkshire Wildlife Sanctuaries.
