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.

Mew Gull

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

January 16, 2019
Where and When To Find It: Cove Island Park, Stamford. Right now. There’s no guarantee we’ll see another. Alternatively, plan on a very long plane ride.

Evening Grosbeak

Wednesday, October 24th, 2018

October 24, 2018 – The iconic “winter finch.” Nobody cares how much sunflower seed a flock can decimate, as long as they do it at your feeder.


Thursday, August 2nd, 2018

August 3, 2018 — All of Connecticut’s coastal shorebird habitat attracts Whimbrels, but the Coastal Center at Milford Point is an especially favorable place to look for them because of the way high tides concentrate shorebirds in a relatively small open area.

Two Waterthrushes

Monday, April 30th, 2018

May 1, 2018. These warblers are active, vociferous birds, habitual tail-waggers easily told from our array of other warbler species. Telling them apart is another matter.

Red-shouldered Hawk

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

February 22, 2018. They can be especially conspicuous starting around this time of year, when mated pairs and rival males engage in raucous nuptial and territorial vocalizations.

Thanksgiving Treats

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

November 22, 2017. Our Bird Finder authors are taking the week off so I’ve compiled a selection of their work from last fall and winter, and the previous fall and winter, as a guide to birds you might want to look for over the Thanksgiving weekend.

Forster’s Tern

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

August 23, 2017. We’re just entering prime time for Forster’s Terns.

Cliff Swallow

Thursday, June 29th, 2017

June 29, 2017. Cliff Swallows attach their mud nests to vertical surfaces such as the walls of buildings and the sides of bridge girders, usually beneath some kind of overhang or covering. Most of the nesting occurs in the western part of the state, including on several bridges over the Housatonic River in Litchfield County.

White-rumped Sandpiper

Friday, May 26th, 2017

May 26, 2017 – White-rumped Sandpiper favors coastal shorelines and mudflats at the state’s top shorebird stopovers such as Milford Point, Sandy Point in West Haven and Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison.
