HCT’s Robert F. Smith Cold Brook Preserve has wide walking trails with lots of opportunities to see our seasonal, avian visitors from the south as the breeding season begins. Bird species of all kinds awaken with the longer days and warmer weather. Bluebirds, swallows, flycatchers, waterbirds and more depend on the mix of wetland, woodland, and stream habitats. Listen to the many melodies of songbirds as they search for their mates and watch as they flitter through tree branches in search of nesting materials.

Walk leader Peter Trull has been involved in Research and Education for over 45 years. He holds a Master’s Degree in Education and has written nine books about Cape Cod natural history. His most recent book Birds of Paradox-The Life of Terns, was released in spring 2019. His upcoming book, Cape Cod – Once Around the Sun, is a tribute to John Hay and his 1961 classic, Nature’s Year.

Peter has devoted his life to studying and teaching others about birds and bird life.

Learn about the unique adaptations, life history and habits of each bird species we encounter. Join Peter Thursdays at 8:00 a.m. for an exciting immersion into the world of birds. Get excited, get sharp!
