Imagine if we could save the last four acres with 750 feet of shoreline on the West Reservoir to protect the Herring River and wildlife as well as complete a future walking trail loop. Arthur H. Hall, Sr. (son of John E. Hall and Eleanor R. Hall), his wife Carolyn C. Hall, and their sons, Arthur H. Hall, Jr., Alan J. Hall, and Aaron L. Hall share that vision and have agreed to sell their four waterfront acres to the Town for $630,000. Now, Harwich voters just have to vote YES on Article 33 at the Monday, May 4th Annual Town Meeting to be held at the Harwich Community Center (7:00 p.m.).

With lots of bird song and activity in the air, spring is a great time to practice your birding skills. Sponsored by Harwich Conservation Trust (HCT), join Todd Kelley at HCT’s largest preserve (Bank St. Bogs Nature Preserve, Harwich Port) for a “Birding for Beginners” workshop along HCT’s Bluebird Trail of nestboxes that host bluebirds, tree swallows, and other songbird species. Learn how to recognize and identify birds by sight and sound. Distinguish telltale field marks such as the size and shape of their bills, body size, wing shape, flight patterns, and general behavior as well as their plumage.

The Wilsons bring owls that are found locally including great-horned owl with golden irises, red morph screech owl and the soda can-sized saw-whet owl. They also showcase owls from around the globe, including the Eurasian eagle owl (largest owl species in the world) and the South American spectacled owl. The barred owl with its dark charcoal-colored eyes and the striking snowy owl will also make an appearance. – See more at: http://harwichconservationtrust.org/eyes-on-owls/#sthash.l69lwALO.dpuf
