Spring 2017 Bird Walks

Northern Parula ©

We invite all of you to join us for our annual spring bird walks every Saturday morning from April 29th to June 3rd. If you haven't been to one and always thought about it "try it.... you'll like it!" They are for any level of birder from novice to expert. We meet at the store and depart promptly at 7:45, carpool to either East Rock Park or the Farmington Canal/Brooksvale Park and spend approximately 2 hours walking the woods and fields looking for newly arriving migrants and also local birds that may be around. 

Specialties include the many warblers that pass through on their way north as well as many that nest here in CT.  Scarlet Tanagers, Baltimore Orioles, Black and Yellow Billed Cuckoos, are among the many other birds we often see and hear. 

The going is usually fairly easy although it can sometimes be damp if we walk in the grass.  Children are welcome but they must be accompanied by an adult and they must be well behaved.  There are quite a few groups that bird East Rock Park and being able to keep together and be quiet so our group as well as others can hear and enjoy the birds is very important.
