Bird Walk - Hubbard Sanctuary in Chaplin

May 21, 2015 -

Hubbard Sanctuary

Thursday, May 21, 2015

  7:30 am  

Join Steve Morytko as he leads a bird walk at the Hubbard Sanctuary in Chaplin. The grassland, wetlands, edge and nearby forest habitats attract many species including Cerulean Warbler (a beautiful threatened species) and a number of other breeding and migrating species.  The grassland habitat, unique among Joshua’s Trust properties, attracts Bobolink-another threatened species in Connecticut. We often have outstanding looks at several much sought after species.  Novice and experienced birders are welcome.  Bring binoculars, a few extra pair may be available if you don’t have them. The walk is expected to be 2 - 3 hours but leave when you need to. The walk will be rain or shine, so please dress appropriately. Property is located behind Chaplin Town Hall along Rt. 198, just north of intersection w. North Bear Hill Rd and Chaplin St. Parking is straight ahead near the fence when you drive in.
