We received this note from the Connecticut Audubon Society:
Connecticut Audubon Society today launched a new weekly guide, called Connecticut Audubon Bird Finder, to help birders of all levels plan weekend trips to see interesting birds in great outdoor settings throughout the state.
The Connecticut Audubon Bird Finder is designed to be 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 of Connecticut Audubon’s staff, including Milan Bull, Frank Gallo, Sean Graesser, Andy Rzeznikiewicz, Andy Griswold, Anthony Zemba and Alex Brash. Together they have decades of combined experience in the field, work in all regions of the state, and are on top on the comings and goings in the avian world.
Each Connecticut Audubon Bird Finder will tell you where that week’s bird is located, how to find it and what it looks like.
And because birds often leave before you arrive, Connecticut Audubon Bird Finder will provide ideas of what else to look for if that week’s bird has flown.
Each week by Friday morning Connecticut Audubon Society will post a new Connecticut Audubon Bird Finder on its blog, with links on Facebook and Twitter.
The first Connecticut Audubon Bird finder is about Black Scoters, by Milan Bull, Connecticut Audubon’s senior director of science and conservation. You can read it here.
