#BwBTC Outing Milford, Ct

Howdee all,

Had a great time Saturday with a wonderful group of Birders who Blog,,some tweeters and some chirpers. And some like me members of the Nature Blog Network.

(I am going to do a few posts on the outing so as to not have one very long post.)

Luke from Under Clear Skies blog kindly volunteered to show us around the area.

That's Luke below in the Navy blue shirt. We gathered here at the Audubon center.

There were 14 of us at this point.

I invited Paul, a birder for 50 years,who happened upon our group,to join us He was a pleasant and informative addition.BwBTC Milford,CT _20090711_005
