If you’re into birds, this will be your weekend. And maybe you can explain to the rest of us what those ducks are saying as they screech overhead in their V formations…

Mamaroneck–First Sunday Bird Walks from the Marine Education Center at Harbor Island Park and the Village of Mamaroneck Committee for the Environment:

“Mamaroneck/Larchmont parks boast a wide variety of bird species throughout the year. The Marine Education Center and the Committee for the Environment would like the community to come learn what’s flying throughout your neighborhood this season.

The walk will start out at Harbor Island Park in Mamaroneck then move to a second Mamaroneck/Larchmont location to be announced the morning of the walk. Birding programs are open to all skill levels and beginner birders are welcome. We have one telescope to use and a limited number of binoculars to share. Please bring your own binoculars if you can.”
