Sometimes the best birding can happen at an overgrown field or thicket rather than an established sanctuary, and this is especially true for sparrows. Fields along Waltham Street in Lexington are hidden gems with streams, thickets, and overgrown agricultural areas that attract a wide range of sparrows, including clay-colored, white-crowned, vesper and Lincoln’s. Dickcissel are regular here in the fall, and other possibilities include Wilson’s snipe, rusty blackbird, indigo bunting, palm warbler and more. Time permitting, we will stop at nearby Dunback Meadows for even more fall migrants.


Also open to teens age 14 and older with an adult.


Instructions and Directions:
Bring binoculars, snacks and drink. Transportation provided from Drumlin Farm.
