Dear Connecticut Birders,

The Summer 2016 issue of the COA Bulletin should be posted here in the next week.  The Bulletin features the 2016 Connecticut Summer Bird Count and a wrap-up of the 2016 COA Annual Meeting, along with COA Workshops, photos of spring migrant birds, reference to the COA Calendar, Twenty-Five Years Ago in The Connecticut Warbler, and description of the Hammonasset Beach State Park pilot program of early morning access to the park by birders, arranged artfully by COA President Kathy Van Der Aue in her negotiations with DEEP.

The Connecticut Summer Bird Count coverage leads off with reprise of an article written by Joe Zeranski on SBCs - well - 25 years ago.  The full schedule of this year’s SBCs is given, but it’s the same as the list posted on the COA website, so you should begin now to plan your participation in one or more counts.  The COA Workshops scheduled by Chris Loscalzo are described on the website, the next one being a Flycatcher Workshop at Hartman Park and Nehantic State Forest in Lyme, led by Glenn Williams.  Chris has scheduled seven more workshops, all the way into November.  Read the full descriptions on the website; the Bulletin will simply list the basic information.  Jim Dugan maintains and updates essentially daily the COA Calendar, which contains a wealth of information on bird-related programs, field trips, and other noteworthy events around the state.  Do take advantage of the Calendar posts. 

Your participation in Connecticut Ornithological Association events and support of COA are greatly appreciated.  As they say, Good Birding!

Steve Broker
