The New Haven Bird Club has one field trip scheduled in August, and
the COA is holding a Shorebird Workshop.
Saturday, August 18, 7:00 AM. Jamaica Bay National Wildlife Refuge,
Queens, NY. Free and open to the public. Please note the earlier
start time. 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 7:00 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 wet and muddy. Leader: Chris Loscalzo: 203
389-6508 or closcalz at optonline.net.
COA Shore Bird Workshop. Sunday, August 19, 10:00 AM at Milford CT
Audubon Coastal Center. Free and open to the public. This workshop
will be designed to help beginning and intermediate birders improve
their skills in identifying shorebirds. The workshop will begin
indoors in the meeting room at the coastal center. Then, the group
will go outside to apply their new skills in the field. Leaders:
Frank Mantlik and others to be determined. The late start time is to
coincide with high tide for the outdoor portion of the workshop.
Check the COA website for additional details. Contact person: Chris
Loscalzo: 203 389-6508 or closcalz at optonline.net.
