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.

Walks will take place rain or shine. Bring your binoculars!

Meet on the west side of the playing fields at Allen’s Meadow. Park in front of the Field 6 sign.

Event dates: April 18, April 27, May 6  and May 16 from 8 a.m.-10 a.m.

Registration is required. Participation is limited to 12 participants per date.  Register online.
