Sat., Nov. 3, 2-11PM

Each fall between late September and late November, large numbers of

Northern Saw-whet Owl (the smallest owl in the northeast) migrate

through New England, and a good number of these birds end up in the

nets of the Massachusetts West Hill banding team. This trip will provide

an opportunity to learn about (and HOLD) these adorable owls, the

banding process, and the scientific data that these banding stations

provide. The trip will begin with a stop at Blackstone Park for birding,

hiking, and a picnic dinner. Please be aware that the banding is of a

nocturnal owl species. This event will entail a late-night return to

Connecticut. Leader: Jim Denham. Members $90/Nonmembers $100.


Wed., Dec. 5 10AM-7PM

Join Connecticut Audubon Society for an annual favorite as your birding

group searches for early winter migrants and coastal birds along the shore

from Old Lyme to Groton. After this pre-holiday adventure your group

will be stopping for dinner at one of the fine eateries in the area. Leader:

Andrew Griswold. Members $75/Nonmembers $85.
