Field Trip – Bluebirds and Swallows at Lake Chamberlain, Bethany/Woodbridge – Pat Leahy

May 20 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

For a number of years, members of the New Haven Bird Club have maintained about 50 nest boxes on Regional Water Authority properties in Bethany and Woodbridge. Join Pat Leahy, Dewitt Allen, and Mike Ferrari on Saturday, May 20 from 9–11 am to view activity in the bluebird and tree swallow boxes on Lake Chamberlain. We will explain how we build and take care of the houses. We will also show what is going on in a couple of special viewing boxes where we can see inside without bothering the new families. This program is open to all, welcoming children and grandchildren as well as more experienced birders. We will make a special effort to show our younger participants how these wonderful birds live. Meet at the RWA parking lot on Sperry Road, Bethany.
