Field Trip – Beginners’ Bird Walk: Grassland and Shrubland Bird IBAs

June 5, 2016 @ 7:00 am

On this trip we look for grassland and shrubland birds, including Bobolink, American Kestrel, Savannah Sparrow, Blue-winged Warbler, and Indigo Bunting. Grasslands and shrublands are uncommon in CT so it is a real treat to see and hear species associated with these habitats.  We meet at the Bent of the River Important Bird Area, then carpool to Good Hill Farm IBA, stop at Southbury Training School and return to the Bent to explore that Audubon Sanctuary.  This walk is geared to beginners but families and all levels of birders are welcome. More advanced birders can enjoy a great day out but also provide support and inspiration to the newcomers. The Bent is at 185 East Flat Hill Rd., Southbury. Meet in the parking lot at the entrance.
