The South Shore Bird Club (SSBC) was founded in 1946 and the first members set out to explore the birds and birding habitats of the South Shore of Massachusetts.
We concentrate on field trips for both members and non members. Most trips involve car-pooling with occasional canoe trips or beach hikes. Non-members are always welcome.

Wompatuck State Park, Hingham - 4/26/2012
The SSBC trip to Wompatuck State Park this morning got off to a chilly sub-40 degree start at 6:30 a.m. Six participants walked the paths from the parking lot across from the visitors center until the main gate opened at 8. From there we walked a loop around Holly Pond, checked the area around Pleasant Street, then walked from N7 Gate(?) to the bridge, where the most action of the day occurred. It was a slow day for birds, but we did have 5 warbler species. The sun shone brightly and the winds were light. -Sally Avery
27 species total
All ovenbirds were audio only, but each of the six was heard in a different area of the park
