Great Barrington Land Conservancy invites you to learn more about our avian friends from two local experts, Chip Blake and Ben Nickley. 
Each year our fields, forests, lakes, and rivers provide the habitat needed for an amazing array of nesting and migratory bird species. Birds rely on conserved spaces and are indicators of our ability to care for healthy native habitats. See photos and find out about the many birds to be found in Berkshire County and how our conserved places support this avian diversity.
