Towle Field bird walk on Sunday May 19

This year's spring bird walk on the Towle Land will be held on Sunday , May 19, leaving from the parking area on Westford Street at 6 a.m. Sponsored by the conservation commission, the walk will be led by Ken Harte.

With early spring weather fluctuating from unseasonably hot and dry to unusually cold and wet, how will the spring migration be affected? Bluebirds are in, having survived the winter. How many bobolinks will return this year? Will there be any effects of last year's sheep graze? And will one or both waterthrushes be back? Come and find out on the 19th, rain or shine, with binoculars, boots, and insect repellent.
