Spring Bird Walk at Hammonasset – Thursday

May 20 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00 am on Thursday, repeating until May 27, 2021

Join Scott and a small group on Thursdays for a 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 for shorebirds, ducks, birds of prey, and vibrant songbirds.

Scott’s Thursday Spring Bird Walks run April 22 through May 27, 2020.

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