Migration Is For The Birds!

Apr 27, 2018

It finally feels like spring, and that means you may be seeing some visitors around your home because peak bird migration season is almost here! This hour, we ask the State Ornithologist what to be on the look for. And we talk with the Connecticut Audubon Society about ways you can get involved in bird conservation here in our state. UConn and DEEP have teamed up to create a new Connecticut Bird Atlas a project that relies on volunteer citizen scientists like you.

What birds have you seen in your backyard?

All of the birds in the slideshow are ones you can see right here in Connecticut! Photos by Patrick Comins.

CT Post: Endangered Piping Plovers on beaches - "Kruitbosch said there was little that the birds could do to save themselves as the storm ravaged more than 1,000 miles of coastline between Oct. 4 and Oct. 10."
