Iceland abounds in natural splendor: Waterfalls and glaciers, panoramic views and otherworldly landscapes. It is a land of Northern Lights and midnight sun. And it is the realm of one of the world’s most charming and iconic birds: the Atlantic Puffin.

During the summer months, Iceland’s round-the-clock sunlight allows us to see a panoply of birds which accompany the puffins in nesting frenzy. Come along with wildlife photographer Shawn Carey as he shares images and stories from his recent journey across Iceland. Along the way, we’ll meet Black-tailed Godwits, Arctic Terns, Red-necked Phalaropes, Razorbills, and Black Guillemots.  We’ll visit fjords, mountains, grasslands, and lava fields.  Join us as we explore the wildlife and wonder of Iceland and discover why it’s a place no birder  or bird photographer should miss.

Eastern Massachusetts has some of the best bird watching locations on the East Coast. Want to know where to see thousands of shorebirds as they migrate through Massachusetts in August? How about a good location to observe Snowy Owls in winter? Maybe you are interested in witnessing the annual hawk migration in the spring and autumn or the best locations in the spring as many of the songbirds move north to their summer breeding grounds. For people with a keen interest in the natural word and wildlife found in Massachusetts this program by Shawn Carey will explore many locations to view these beautiful birds and other wildlife with stunning photographs and videos. In addition we will look at a few “hot spots” beyond Massachusetts that no birder will want to miss. So grab your binoculars, spotting scope and Stokes field guide as we look at birds of Eastern Massachusetts and beyond.
