Connect with Mount Auburn Wildlife on Social Media
Mount Auburn is a world-renown arboretum and the diversity of its plantings may contribute its attractiveness for birds (as well as other animals). Before you come birding at the Cemetery please read our Birder’s Guide. Also, check out our Pinterest board of favorite wildlife photographers and follow us on Twitter for the latest bird sightings by staff!
As you may already know, the Cemetery is a year-round mecca for wildlife – there are trees and shrubs that flower throughout the year, yielding fruits, berries, nuts, seeds and insects that offer a variety of food to migrant and resident birds and to populations of animals including squirrel, rabbit, woodchuck, skunk, opossum, raccoon, fox and coyote. The breeding population of Spotted Salamanders in Consecration Dell is one of the largest colonies in eastern Massachusetts.
