The Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds is offering a series of free shorebird identification seminars at the Connecticut Audubon Society's Milford Point Coastal Center. These seminars are scheduled around tides so are somewhat irregularly spaced. The focus will be on shorebirds, terns and other coastal waterbirds. The goal is to end sessions by 9:00 PM.
Thursday, July 26th, 6:00 PM. Field session followed by 1 hour indoor general shorebird presentation. High tide 5:36 PM.
Thursday, August 9th, 6:00 PM. Field session followed by birding by ear for shorebirds and coastal waterbirds indoors. High tide 5:25 PM.
Tuesday, September 11th, 5:00 PM. Field session followed by indoor presentation focusing on advanced shorebird and tern ID. We had to push this one earlier because of 7:07 PM sunset. High tide 8:24 PM.
Attendance at all three sessions is not mandatory, but the goal is to make it worthwhile to attend all three as we will seek to minimize overlap of materials covered. The leader will be Patrick Comins, but additional staff from the two Audubons, including Sean Grasser will likely assist. Space is limited! Please contact us at ctwaterbirds at gmail.com<mailto:ctwaterbirds at gmail.com> Pre-registration is required due to limited space. These seminars are free.
The Audubon Alliance is a joint venture of Audubon Connecticut and the Connecticut Audubon Society in partnership with the US Fish and Wildlife Service and Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, with funding from the Long Island Sound Futures Fund, Cross Foundation, Jeniam Foundation and Community Foundation for Greater New Haven.
