Join ABA members and staff for thrilling field trips in search of migrants and Texas specialties. When the Pilgrims arrived at Plymouth in 1620, what did they see? There must have been Razorbills, Black Guillemots, and probably murres, and even Great Auks working the coast. Things have changed a bit since Captain Myles Standish's days, but a lot is still the same too. The Clam Chowder has always been good, and the tough, plump Purple Sandpipers still work the tide-line along the rocks, while scoters and Common Eiders still drift offshore, just as they did in 1620. The Cape Cod area is a hotbed for rarities too. Join your ABA birding friends in legendary Plymouth!
