Even just a few winter time visits merits your support. You don't have to pay much and I think the annual membership fee is extremely reasonable. Even a small donation of $5-$10 helps keep those feeders filled through the tough winter months. I live in Stamford but do not have access to the sanctuary during summer months. The birding is better during the off-peak months anyway to be honest.

I live in Westchester and visit Cove Island Sanctuary at least once a week during Winter months but visitors who do not live in Stamford and do not have a (beach) permit for Cove Island run the risk of a parking violation fine ($60 ?) during those months when the beach is being used by residents. Years ago I used to work in Stamford and was able to obtain a parking permit. I have been told that non-residents can obtain a permit but at a cost of over $200.
