Just minutes from downtown Pittsfield, Canoe Meadows offers a true wilderness feel. A very popular bird-watching spot in the Berkshires, hike along the Sackett Brook and view wildlife from the observation building on the edge of a beaver marsh. The observation building is built on the bank of a marshy beaver wetland. Looking out the small windows of the building, you can see bullfrogs, turtles, muskrats, otters, and tons of bird varieties. The sanctuary is a popular bird-watching spot; more than 150 different birds have been identified here.
