Birders who Blog, Tweet and Chirp outings

Howdee all,

A Ct. outing in the works for Saturday July 11th.
Looks like starting point is Milford, Ct.

Luke from Under Clear Skies has volunteered to be our guide for the day.
This is what he suggests for the day.

I would suggest (depending on how long people want to go for) to start at the Connecticut Audubon Center in Milford and work our way from there. I'll do some work on the tide times for the day which will help work out when is best to hit that spot and others. Milford is great for migrant peeps (what a joy I hear you thinking). Also good for other shorebirds, terns etc though and local spots should produce a nice array of birds such as YC Night-heron, Boat-tailed Grackles etc etc.
