The New Haven Bird Club has one field trip scheduled in July, and the  
Connecticut Ornithological Association is holding a Long-legged Wader  
Workshop.  NHBC members should note there has been an itinerary  
change from previously published information for the Central CT  
Birding Tour field trip.

Central CT Birding Tour.  Saturday, July 7, 2012, 7:00 am. Free.
The itinerary for the field trip to central CT on July 7th has  
changed. The first stop of the trip will be Northwest Park in  
Windsor. We will not be visiting Rentschler Field as the fields there  
have been mowed and there will be a Fourth of July festival there  
that day.  Then, we’ll go to Station 43, along the CT River in South  
Windsor or Great Pond State Forest in Simsbury.  Meet at the commuter  
lot at 7:00 am on Route 68 in Wallingford, west of I-91 at Exit 15  
(at the east end of Barnes Road) or at the Cabela’s parking lot in  
East Hartford (near the pond) at 7:30am.  Leader—Chris Loscalzo: 203  
389-6508, closcalz at optonline.net.

COA Long-legged Waders Workshop.  Saturday, July 21st, 2012 at 9:00  
am.  Barn Island Wildlife Management Area, Stonington.
Learn how to identify herons, egrets, and ibis.  Learn how to  
differentiate between similar species, such as juvenile Black-crowned  
and Yellow-crowned Night Heron.  Learn about their feeding and  
nesting habits.  The workshop will be geared towards beginner and  
intermediate birders.  Meet at the gravel parking lot opposite the  
Marsh Viewing area, just north of the boat launch.  We’ll spend some  
time discussing the different waders, then go out on the trail to see  
what we can find.  Barn Island WMA is located at the end of Palmer  
Neck Road in Stonington.  Bring plenty of bug spray and sunscreen.   
Free and open to the public.  Leader:  Chris Loscalzo at  
closcalz at optonline.net or 203-389-6508.
