Birds are miraculous! Especially in Spring when they dazzle us with bright, nuptial colors and serenade us with a profusion of happy song. This Earth Day the Berkshire County Historical Society will host a bird walk at Herman Melville’s historic home, Arrowhead. Ben Nickley, Director of Berkshire Bird Observatory, will lead the walk, helping participants find and identify many newly arrived migratory birds. This walk will be a celebration of nature, renewal and all that birds do to inspire and uplift us.
Ben Nickley loves sharing his passion for birds and the natural landscapes they inhabit. He is a published scientist and master bird bander who has conducted field studies on birds across North America. Currently, he is the Director of Berkshire Bird Observatory, where he leads research projects that promote bird conservation in the Berkshires. He posts regular updates from the field on Facebook and Instagram @berkshire_bird_observatory
