Please note that the New Haven Bird Club has one field trip scheduled
Saturday, July 11, 7:00 AM: Station 43 and Great Pond State Forest.
Free and open to the public.
We’ll go to two excellent birding locations in the CT central
valley. First stop will be station 43, along the CT river in South
Windsor. Birds of interest at this wetlands and open field habitat
include Least Bittern, Sora, Virginia Rail, Bobolink, and Eastern
Meadowlark. We’ll break for lunch, then go to Great Pond Forest in
Simsbury: possible pond and woodland species include Green Heron,
Wood Duck, Black-throated Green and Blue Warblers, and Yellow-
throated Vireo. If we’re lucky, the Mississippi Kites that nested
near there last year will have returned. Meet at the commuter lot at
7:00 AM on Route 68 in Wallingford, west of I-91 at Exit 15.
