Breakfast & Birding at Foxcroft Farm

May 11 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 am

Birders looking up

Celebrate spring with birdsong, good company, and nourishing food! Join us on World Migratory Bird Day, Saturday, May 11, at Foxcroft Farm in Amherst to explore and learn about migratory and resident birds.

Your guide to the season’s avian visitors will be Katie Schroeder, leading us on a stroll around hay fields and beaver ponds to identify some of the extraordinary bird diversity on Foxcroft Farm, which Kestrel Land Trust helped conserve in 2017. Peg Riley, co-owner of Foxcroft and professor of biology at UMass Amherst, will share her knowledge and love of nature as we walk the farm. We will occasionally pause to take in the sweeping, picturesque view. Binoculars are strongly recommended.

This event will be held from 7:00 -10:00 am. After the morning bird walk, we’ll return to the majestic post-and-beam farm to enjoy a breakfast spread provided by The Black Sheep Deli as well as plenty of birding conversation! Jim Hoerle, co-owner of Foxcroft, will provide a tour of the barn and share his journey to restore this farm to productivity.

Katie Schroeder is a PhD candidate at UMass studying communication in songbirds.

Registration is required with a sliding-scale donation.
