COA Gull Workshop
Sunday, March 22, 2020 at 8:00 am
Stratford Point, Stratford

Join us as we look for and learn about the gulls of Connecticut.  Nick Bonomo will share his considerable knowledge about how to identify members of this extraordinarily challenging group of birds.  We’ll have a sit down session where we’ll go over the finer points of gull ID and then look for gulls at several locations along the coast.  We may visit sites such as Long Beach in Stratford, Seaside Park in Bridgeport, and Southport Beach, depending on where the gulls are congregating. This is a good time of year to find rarities, such as Black-headed, Little, and Mew Gulls.
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.
Leader:  Nick Bonomo.
Contact person: Chris Loscalzo at: closcalz@optonline.net or 203 389-6508.
