The event is co-sponsored by Litchfield Hills Audubon Society.

Light refreshments will be served and Birds & Beans Coffee will be available for purchase as well.

In 2008, Kenn Kaufman was presented with the highest honor of the American Birding Association, the Roger Tory Peterson Award “for a lifetime of achievements in promoting the cause of birding.” He is a field editor for Audubon and a contributor to every major birding magazine. Most of his time, however, has gone into writing books, such as Kingbird Highway, Flights Against the Sunset, Lives of American Birds, and Advanced Birding. His own Kaufman Field Guides series now includes volumes on birds (in English and Spanish,) butterflies, mammals and insects.
The Litchfield Community Center is located at 421 Bantam Road (Route 202) in Litchfield.
