Spring Bird Walk at Hammonasset – Saturday

April 24 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Join Jerry and Co. for a small group, safe Spring Migration Bird Walk at Hammonasset, one of Connecticut’s premier birding “hot spots”.

Hammonasset Beach State Park here in Madison is widely regarded as one of the premier birding spots in CT, and springtime migration is a lot of fun. Approximately 240 species of birds occur there annually, as the park boasts diverse habitats such as marsh, open water, woodland, grassland and shoreline.

Tropical migrants in their bright breeding finery will be seen as they return north to nesting grounds. We’ll be searching with eyes and ears for shorebirds, ducks, birds of prey, and vibrant songbirds. This is a good chance to learn bird song.

Our weekend Spring Bird Walks run Saturdays April 17 through June 12, 2020. See Thursdays, also.

Always a surprise and always entertaining, birding on the shore of CT is one of the highlights of spring. Get outdoors and enjoy a Saturday morning in the fresh air!
