Situated on Long Island Sound at the mouth of the Housatonic River, Milford Point is a designated Important Bird Area for nesting and migrating shorebirds, terns and waterfowl.
We will bird the coastal area and search for those and other species, taking advantage of the proper tide. Time permitting, we will also walk the gardens in search of songbirds.
An avid birder and educator, Coastal Center devotee and volunteer Frank Mantlik will be your guide. Frank serves on the Center’s Advisory Board, heads up the Purple Martin Nest Monitoring Project, is a past president of the Connecticut Ornithological Association and serves on its Avian Records Committee.
