NOVEMBER 2020 - Update   

Greetings Birders!
Purple-throated CaribFall migration is in full swing here in New England with late season migrants now coming through. The shortening days signal the onset of winter and with each passing day we get closer to traveling again. 

To that end, we have added some new tours to our schedule and moved some tours forward.  Most exciting is an epic 10 island tour for endemic birds of the Lesser Antilles in January 2023!>
