We have a new map of Lighthouse Point for Hawk Watchers. Thanks to Howie Sternberg for creating this one.
We are in the process of creating a resource of maps for our favorite birding places in the greater New Haven area (and beyond if the birds are really good.) One of our club members, Cheryl Cape is experienced in GIS map development and is doing the technical work of creating these maps. Cheryl is relatively new to birding and new to the New Haven Area. We are looking for volunteers to help us populate these maps with good birding know-how from these familiar sites. The purpose of these maps is to assist newer birders in the area and visitors to the area. We all know how frustrating it can be to travel to a new part of the country and have 1/2 a day of free time but not know where the great local spots can be found. If this sounds like an interesting project to work on give me a call.

This is our overall map of the NHBC local area with birding spots. We hope to complete maps of all of these spots & more. All of the map will print nicely on 8.5 by 11 paper so you can take them with you.
