Field Trip – Beginners’ Bird Walk at Griswold Point, Old Lyme

October 11, 2015 @ 2:30 pm

Note:  This is a time change from the Yearbook. (Originally scheduled for Oct 4, at 8:30)

Located at the mouth of the CT River, Griswold Point provides important stopover habitat for shorebirds and songbirds in the fall.   On this walk, we scan the coastline for late migrating shorebirds and look for Saltmarsh and Nelson’s Sparrows along the edges of the marsh. The Saltmarsh Sparrow is globally vulnerable and fall migration offers a great opportunity to glimpse this species.  This walk is geared to beginners but birders of all levels and families are welcome. More advanced birders can enjoy a day out while providing support and inspiration to the newcomers. We’ll meet at the town parking lot at the end of White Sand Beach Rd.  NOTE: Moderately strenuous trip; we’ll walk about 2 miles, partially over sand. Leader: Corrie Folsom-O’Keefe: 203-630-9640 (home–preferred), 203-233-0535 (cell–only morning of trip) or cfolsom-okeefe@audubon.org
