Connecticut Audbon Society

Register: May 18th Family Shorebird Walk, Milford Point

May 18, 2024
Coastal Center at Milford Point, 1 Milford Point Rd
Ages 8 and up

We’ve timed this walk for an ebbing tide several hours after high tide, to leave plenty of room for participants to view shorebirds with minimal disturbance to them. The Milford Point sandbar is just what it sounds like—a wide spit of sand, shadeless and fully exposed to Long Island Sound and the elements—so check the weather forecast and dress appropriately. We’ll see hundreds if not thousands of shorebirds, including Semipalmated Sandpiper, Least Sandpiper, Ruddy Turnstone, Black-bellied Plover, and Semipalmated Plover. We’ll also see nesting Piping Plover and American Oystercatcher. Children 8 years old and older are welcome with an adult. Bring binoculars; walk leaders will make sure you see plenty of birds! Beginner birders are welcome.
