OK, this is over the border, but I suspect this place will become well-known among CT and New England birders in the years to come.  This Saturday at 11 AM the Silvio O. Conte National Fish and Wildlife Refuge will celebrate the grand opening of the new universal access trail at the Fort River Division in Hadley, MA.  The Refuge is located on Moody Bridge Road in Hadley.

Region 5 director Wendi Weber will be present for the ceremony, followed by a hike along the new trail.   The birding habitat is excellent there, from the nesting grassland birds (Bobolink, Savannah Sparrow, Eastern Meadowlark, American Kestrel, possibly Northern Harrier), to great stopover and wintering habitat, this trail will certainly host some rarities in the coming years.
