Thursday, November 1, 2018 - Learn and grow with Audubon Connecticut. Educators across the state are invited to take part in this day-long summit filled with opportunities for professional development, networking, and learning about best practices in outdoor education.
For such a small state, Connecticut is quite a gem when it comes to birding. The land spans a length of just 110 miles and is comprised of habitats ranging from offshore islands to grasslands to tracts of woodland. Grab your binoculars and check out these notable bird hotspots across the state.
Each month take small actions to make a difference for birds. October's featured action is to Help Spot, Count, and Record Birds. Everyday citizens like you can help scientists learn about bird behavior by entering bird info into eBird.org. This also helps us to know where birds are and to identify areas in need of habitat conservation support. Other actions like mow less, avoid pesticides, think organic, and save water make a difference too. Join the 2018 Year of the Bird celebration!
BirdCast can accurately forecast the biggest migration movements days in advance. This is good news for birds and birders alike.
