While Cape Cod is often described as a great place for birding, there are some notable locations that are certainly worth exploring even further. That’s thanks in part to the location and the large amount of conservation land on Cape Cod.
Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge
Just south of Chatham, Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge is a favorite spot for birders on Cape Cod. Because the area is so diverse in terms of its habitats, you’ll find tern and plovers are attracted to the area. The wildlife refuge provides ponds, dunes and marshes.
Birdwatching is a popular pastime on Monomoy Island. It’s said there are so many different species that congregate here, you may see different ones on each visit.
