This is not in CT, but perhaps of interest to CT birders.
Great Gull Island in New York is a pretty amazing place and is the largest tern colony on Long Island Sound, supporting over 10,000 pairs of Common Terns and >1,500 pairs of the federally endangered Roseate Tern. The island is owned and managed by the American Museum of Natural History and is normally closed to the public. The Long Island Sound Study, New York State Marine Education Association and the Museum are scheduling two volunteer work parties. One for the weekend of May 25th-May 28th and a second party June 1st-June 3rd. Volunteers will be marking nests, observing and banding birds, and clearing invasive plants. If you would like to sign up for one of those trips, you are more than welcome to do so via the link below. Please fill out this form and you will be provided with more details:
A great way to help out at an important place and maybe get some great looks at Roseate Terns.
