Bicknell’s Thrush Tours on Mt Washington Auto Road
Wednesday, June 12
June 2, 4, 6, 8, and 12: Bicknell’s Thrush Tours: Bicknell’s Thrush is an extremely rare species with very limited breeding grounds. They usually breed at higher elevations, normally nesting above 3,000 ft. The unique and harsh climate is just what the birds prefer due to the combination of low vegetation and abundant moisture. The Mt. Washington Auto Road offers you a rare opportunity to view these obscure birds. The Bicknell’s Thrush Guided Tours leave early in the morning before the Mt. Washington Auto Road opens to the general public to insure there is as little additional noise or disturbance as possible. Our success rate at hearing and seeing this elusive thrush is quite good, but with the species in decline due to wintering habitat losses, there can be no guarantee of sightings. Tours depart from the base of the Auto Road at 6:00am and last approximately 2 hours. Cost: $50 per person, Advanced reservations required.
