Thanks for posting this article, the two subjects of which are directly related to CT birding.   


The article describes geotypes as "geologic sites with noteworthy aesthetic, cultural, historic and scientific value." 


Those two tips of the basaltic iceberg possess unique botanical, entomological, herpatological and of course,  ornithological, features.

The link below is to an artricle that appeared in Sunday's Hartford Courant. It's not about birds strictly but about the geology/art of East Rock and West Rock Parks, both near and dear to birders. If the link doesn't work, the article can be accessed by going to courant.com and searching "New Haven's Sentinels East Rock and West Rock."
