Please note the following New Haven Bird Club's schedule of  
activities for August.

Sunday, August 14, 7:30 AM.  COA Shore Bird/Tern Workshop.  Sandy  
Point, West Haven.  Free and open to the public.  COA field workshops  
focus on one or two groups of birds with the intent of helping  
birders improve their identification skills. The workshop will begin  
at Sandy Point and then move to Milford Point to coincide with high  
tide.  Meet at the parking lot across from the former Captain’s  
Galley Restaurant in West Haven.  Wear footwear that you won’t mind  
getting wet. No pre-registration required.  Check the COA website  
(www.ctbirding.org) for details.

Saturday, August 20, 7:30 AM.  Jamaica Bay National Wildlife Refuge,  
Queens, NY.   Free and open to the public.  This birding hot spot is  
a great place to see a wide variety of shorebirds, herons, terns, and  
migrating passerines.  It is a great place for uncommon shorebirds  
such as American Avocet, Marbled Godwit, and Buff-breasted, Stilt,  
and White-rumped Sandpiper.  Meet at 7:30 am at the commuter lot in  
Orange at Rte 34 and Greenway Road (at exits 57/58 of the Wilbur  
Cross Pkwy).  We will carpool to the refuge, returning in the late  
afternoon.  Bring lunch, water, and bug spray.  Consider a cap and  
sunscreen, and wear shoes you won't mind getting muddy.  Leader:  
Chris Loscalzo: 203 389-6508 or closcalz at optonline.net.
