It is unclear just how much this might conflict with birding, but be warned that there is an event scheduled for East Rock Park in New Haven for Saturday April 24.  The details are a bit vague, but it includes some sort of "major re-enactment" with musket and cannon fire.


"Soldiers’ & Sailors’ Monument Celebration

On Saturday, April 24th beginning at 10am, there will be military re-enactments at the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument atop the summit of East Rock Park. The Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Mexican War and U.S. Civil War will be interpreted by period re-enactors. The celebration will continue through Sunday at noon and will include the firing of muskets, cannons, bayonet drills, sword practice, medical demonstrations and general talks. This event is sponsored by Fort Nathan Hale Preservation Projects Organization."

Also some sort of bicycle event from West Rock to East Rock, which appears to be an annual event.  www.rocktorock.org

Thanks to Bill Banks for bringing this to my attention.
