This large waterbird is a majestic sight when spotted gracefully gliding in Long Island Sound in winter. Can you imagine a winter in which this species did not return to Connecticut? It’s possible if we do not work to maintain the fish populations that it relies on through the Magnuson-Stevens Act (MSA)—an important piece of legislation that is currently under threat.
Join the longest running Citizen Science project in the world. Have fun and meet new people, while making a meaningful contribution to science. Connecticut counts begin December 15th and run thru January 5th. Join the fun and participate in a count near you!
Each month take small actions to make a difference for birds. December is our final month and this month's theme is "Share Your Love of Birds This holiday season." Support the #YearOfTheBird by giving bird and nature-themed gifts to the backyard birder or globetrotting adventurer in your life. Audubon's gift guide and our Nature Stores have something for everyone. Thank you for being a part of the 2018 Year of the Bird celebration!
