Lead Instructor, Landbird Conservation

This weekly list consists of bird species—both year-long residents and migratory—you may find in your backyard in the northeast U.S.

Our goal is to help you get to know the birds using your area, both through our staff’s birding expertise as well as what Manomet has learned about these species from our over 50 years of studying them in our banding lab.

Scroll through this page to see weekly species accounts by month.

This spring 2022 migration season, for the first time in Manomet history, you can adopt one of the mist nets we use to safely capture birds for research! By adopting a mist net in your name or a loved one’s, you will support critical bird and ecology research and help educate the next generation of conservationists.
