June Birds

Thursday, June 13th, 2019

June 13, 2019 – Connecticut is filled with birds this month, many of them raising families (or being raised), many resting and feeding. Here’s a list of eight chosen at random from among our summer Bird Finder entries over the past five years.

April Birds

Friday, April 19th, 2019

April 19, 2019 – There are so many birds to find in April, we thought we’d post a quick compilation of a handful to be alert for over the next few days.

Peregrine Falcon

Thursday, December 6th, 2018

December 6, 2018 – Look for a darkly-colored raptor zipping through the air or perched high on a ledge. They have a grayish-blue back and black barring on the white underside. Their eyes are pronounced, outlined by a bright yellow ring, and the highly curved bill helps them tear at their food.

Chimney Swift

June 21, 2018. To find Chimney Swifts in Connecticut this summer, look up to the sky! There is a good chance you will see them flying high in the air around densely populated areas. In the evening, you may notice large groups of these birds coming to a chimney to roost.

April 12, 2018. During the last few weeks, Great Egret have been moving through the state and some have returned to hunt before the breeding season kicks in.
