Shorebird Workshop at the Coastal Center

August 2, 2018 – Sharpen your shorebird identification skills at Milford Point, one of the best places to see shorebirds in the state!

Saturday, August 25
8 – 11 a.m.
(Rain date: Sunday, August 26)

Connecticut Audubon Executive Director Patrick Comins and other experts will conduct an indoor session followed by outdoor field study. Thousands of shorebirds gather at Milford Point in August to rest and feed on their migration south. You can expect (or hope) to see Semipalmated, Baird’s (shown at left), Buff-Breasted, Stilt, White-rumped, Pectoral, and Western sandpipers, among others.

This event is co-sponsored by the Connecticut Ornithological Association (COA) and the Connecticut Audubon Society.

The workshop is free and open to COA and Connecticut Audubon members and non-members alike.
