First Wednesday Walk: Hammonasset State Park, Madison. Wednesday, February 3, 8:00 am. Free and open to the public. Enjoy a mid-week field trip to Hammonasset Beach State Park, one of the state’s best birding locations in any season of the year. We will look for sea ducks, grassland species, and rarities. Meet at the park entrance at 8:00 am (I-95, Exit 62). Leader: Greg Hanisek: 203-525-1558 or ctgreg at yahoo.com.
Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge and Rhode Island Coast. Saturday, February 27, 7:00 am. Snow Date: Sunday, February 28. Free and open to the public. This all-day trip includes stops at Sachuest Point NWR, Beavertail State Park, Moonstone Beach, Trustum Pond, and other great birding sites on the RI coast. We will see lots of sea ducks including all three scoter species, Common Eider, and Harlequin Duck. We’ll look for birds of prey, including Rough-legged Hawk and several owl species. We’ll also be on the lookout for alcids and rare gulls. Dress warmly—it’s likely to be cold and windy on the coast. The walk is a bit strenuous. Bring lunch and a scope, if you have one. Meet at the Branford commuter lot, Exit 55 off I-95. Leader: Chris Loscalzo: 203-389-6508 or closcalz at optonline.net.
