Bay Farm Conservation Area Professional Review and Guide
"This unique coastal property, located on Kingston Bay, offers nature lovers superb bird-watching. Shorebirds, ducks, songbirds, and birds of prey all share fields, woods, and the shore of Bay Farm. An occasional rabbit and red fox are also seen here. The most impressive feature at Bay Farm is its secluded shoreline along Kingston Bay. It can be easily reached by following the wide, grassy path that leaves the parking area and cuts through the main field, heading directly eastward toward the ocean.
The vegetation and wildflowers in the field attract a wide assortment of butterflies and birds. Look for goldfinches with their yellow breasts and black wings and tails. When in flight they often dip like a roller coaster and sing out per-chiko-ree. The fields also attract northern harriers, which fly a few feet above the ground, tilting from side to side as they scan the meadow for any signs of movement. Duxbury Conservation Commission Administrator Joe Grady says that many different birds of prey are seen here hunting for mice. There have even been sightings of osprey along the shoreline. Highlights: walk to ocean, fields, good birding."
