Great Horned Owl, Great Blue Heron, Red Tailed Hawk, Cedar Waxwing, Indigo Bunting and Wood Duck
The Emerald Necklace Bird Club was established in 2005 as a tribute to Christine Cooper and Charlie Hauck for their stewardship and work of 21 years for the Jamaica Pond Project. For over two decades the Friends of Jamaica Pond and Jamaica Pond Project have collaborated and partnered with the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, Boston Park Rangers and many private and public agencies.

The Emerald Necklace is the urban oasis for much of the natural world in Boston. Both migrating and long-term resident birds find the Emerald Necklace continuous open spaces, marshes and wooded areas a haven. Frequent visits will slowly reveal a landscape full of life and wonder from the soaring flight of a Red Tailed Hawk to the sensuous call of a White Throated Sparrow, and the statute-still Great Blue Heron to the busy Massachusetts state bird --the Black Capped Chickadee.

Join the Emerald Necklace Bird Club and explore this landscape and natural wonder each season -- spring, summer, fall and winter. Add bird sightings to both the Emerald Necklace Bird Club master list, specific park lists, along with your own yearly and life lists. Support the conservation of natural habitat and become a steward of the earth.
