Spring Bird Walk at Hammonasset

Spring Bird Walk at Hammonasset

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 of birds occur there annually, as the park boasts diverse habitats such as marsh, open water, woodland, grassland and shoreline.

Meet Jerry at The Audubon Shop parking lot at 7:50am and carpool to the park.
