Birding with Frank: Winter Sea Ducks
Saturday, February 6, 9 a.m.
Thousands of scoters, loons, eiders and many other arctic avians come to local inshore waters off Montauk Point each winter to feed on the vegetation and invertebrates that live on the ocean floor. The South Fork Natural History Museum will scan the ocean surface with scopes and try to identify these arctic visitors as they dive for food and frolic in the surf. Bring binoculars and/or a scope and a field guide to birds of the eastern United States, if you have them. Registration is $10.
