This just flew in from the Connecticut Audubon Society:
Connecticut Audubon Society is launching a new weekly guide today, called Connecticut Audubon Bird Finder, to help birders plan weekend trips to great outdoor settings throughout the state.
Connecticut Audubon Bird Finder is a carefully curated guide to an unusual or interesting bird that has been sighted that week in a publicly-accessible location.
The bulletins will be compiled by the expert birders on Connecticut Audubon’s staff, including Milan Bull, Frank Gallo, Sean Graesser, Andy Rzeznikiewicz, Andy Griswold, Anthony Zemba and Alex Brash.
Each Connecticut Audubon Bird Finder will tell you where that week’s bird is located, how to find it and, for those who might not be experts, what it looks like.
And because birds sometimes leave before you arrive, we’ll try to compensate by giving ideas of what else to look for if that week’s bird has flown.
Each week by Friday morning we will post a new Connecticut Audubon Bird Finder on our blog.
- You can visit the blog every Friday.
- You can subscribe to get blog posts by email (the links are on the right side of the blog page).
- You can go to our Facebook page, where we will post each week’s guide.
- You can follow us on Twitter, where we will tweet links to each guide.
- You can send us your email address and we’ll notify you each time we post a new weekly guide (respond to this email with your name and town).
