CT Audubon: Thursday morning bird walks

Thursday Morning Bird Walks with Milan Bull will be held Thursdays, May 7, 14, 21, 28; June 4 and 11, from 6:30-7:30 a.m., at Connecticut Audubon Society Center at Fairfield, 2325 Burr Street, Fairfield.

The Connecticut Audubon Society’s Larsen Sanctuary contains a mix of habitats that attract diverse wildlife — particularly birds. More than 180 species of birds visit the sanctuary throughout the year, including many that stop during their long migrations.

Join Milan Bull, Connecticut Audubon Society’s senior director of science and conservation, for an early Thursday morning guided bird walk that explores the Larsen Sanctuary’s varied habitats which are home to Broad-Winged Hawks, Indigo Buntings, Scarlet Tanagers and many more species. This walk and talk is an ideal opportunity to learn about the wide variety of birds along the trails and near the water features, as well as species found at the Center’s feeders.

Milan Bull is a longtime expedition leader to destinations throughout the Americas, Australia, Antarctica and Africa. He currently is a member of the Conservation Advisory Council to Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, and was founding director and past president of the Connecticut Ornithological Association. He has published numerous articles and speaks statewide on topics relating to ornithology and the environment.

The weekly Thursday morning walk is free, and takes about an hour. All levels of birders are welcome. Prepare ahead by downloading a Checklist of Birds for the Larsen Sanctuary which may be found at the Center at Fairfield’s website, ctaudubon.org/center-at-fairfield. Be sure to dress for the weather — wear comfortable walking shoes and don’t forget binoculars. Walks will be canceled if there is rain. All walks meet in the parking lot. Stop in the Nature Store afterward for a cup of coffee.

For reservations or more information, call 203-259-6305, ext. 109. Visit Connecticut Audubon Society’s website at ctaudubon.org for a complete list of spring programs and special events.
