A free bird walk will be given by Birding for Pleasure in Durham/Middlefield.
WHEN: Saturday June 25, 2022 at 8 a.m.-11 a.m. Rain cancels
LOCATION: Meet at Fredrick White’s Farm open space (Durham Fair Grounds, 70 Maple Ave, Durham, CT 06422, USA).
We will begin at Fredrick White’s Farm open space. Then we may drive 2 miles to Strickland Farm Conservation area with the focus on Bobolinks.
An experienced birder, Matthew Bell will lead the walk. Matt is a Travel Specialist at the Connecticut Audubon Society. He loves participating in citizen science, tour guiding, chasing rare birds in his free time, and meeting fellow birders from around the globe. Most of all, Matt enjoys sharing his passion for birds and conservation with others.
Fredrick White’s and Strickland conservation fields both serve as important wildlife corridors for birds and insects, some of which are endangered or threatened.
