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.
