Spring Migration 2022 – Birding Walks at Allen’s Meadow
May 19 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
An event every week that begins at 8:00 am on Thursday, repeating until May 21, 2022
Join expert birder, environmentalist, gardener, and Wilton resident Joe Bear for a series of free spring migration bird walks. Joe has been birding for over 30 years, having led both domestic and international trips for the CT Audubon Society and other nature-based organizations.
Bear will lead this leisurely two-hour walk through the diverse habitats this birding hot spot, Allen’s Meadow, has to offer – open fields, woodlands, edges, pond and swamp – to seek out returning summer residents, those on their way to northern nesting grounds, and maybe a vagrant or two. Previous spring walks have yielded a wide variety of species including Orchard Orioles, Bobolinks, Indigo Buntings, Baltimore Orioles, Scarlet Tanagers, Eastern Kingbirds, Warblers (including Yellow, Wilson’s, Blue-winged, Northern Parula, Black and White, American Redstart, Blackpoll, etc), and Vireos, as well as Bluebirds and Tree Swallows tending nest boxes erected by Bear.
