8.12.14 - Birding101 - KidSummer - Lee Baldwin Trail
Cape Cod Museum of Natural History - Brewster, MA

After our bird species memory game, it was time to check out the other amazing trail here at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History.  The Lee Baldwin trail also offers a peaceful and shady Beech Tree Forest - perfect for the end of a sunny hike.  It was difficult leaving the platform because we kept spotting species after species!  The ladies were happily surprised with their new set of binoculars!  It was time to test them out on some birds!
