A free bird walk will be given by Birding for Pleasure in Durham/Middlefield.
 
WHEN: Saturday June 4, 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, Melissa Baston will lead the walk.  Melissa is a board member of Quinnipiac Valley Audubon Society and Connecticut Ornithological Association. Melissa helps to install and monitor American Kestrel boxes in Durham and throughout Connecticut.
 
Fredrick White’s and Strickland conservation fields both serve as important wildlife corridors for birds and insects, some of which are endangered or threatened. We will count the Bobolink.
