Birds & Birding

Upcoming birding events by the Connecticut Ornithological Association include:

Gull Workshop
Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 8:00 am
Stratford Point, Stratford

Join us as we look for and learn about the gulls of Connecticut. Patrick Comins will share his considerable knowledge about how to identify members of this extraordinarily challenging group of birds. We’ll look for gulls along the shore and have a sit down session where we’ll go over the finer points of gull ID. This is a good time of year to find rarities, such as Black-headed, Little, and Mew Gulls. We may visit other sites such as Long Beach in Stratford, Seaside Park in Bridgeport, and Southport Beach, depending on where the gulls are congregating. Last year, we saw a California Gull as part of the workshop. Meet at Audubon Connecticut’s Habitat Management Area at 1207 Prospect Drive, Stratford. The workshop is free and open to COA members and non-members alike. Leaders: Patrick Comins, et al. Contact person: Chris Loscalzo at: closcalz@optonline.net or 203 389-6508.
