On Sundays in June, on the 6, 13, and 20, the Norwalk Seaport Association is offering specially curated Bird Cruise around the Norwalk Islands from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. These two-and-a-half-hour cruises will be led by Will Schneck, a passionate bird enthusiast that combines superb birding skills with an astonishing command of bird biology and habits.
As a member of the esteemed Connecticut Young Birders Club, he will share his knowledge and expertise about local seabirds and their behavior. Schneck is an excellent communicator, has a great sense of humor, and is tireless in helping others spot the birds and wildlife of Long Island Sound.
For millennia, seabirds have made Long Island Sound off the coast of Norwalk, Connecticut their home. Birders and nature enthusiasts have spotted waterfowl, shorebirds, and seabirds along with migrant birds of all types in this rich natural environment. As the third smallest state in the country, amazingly, Connecticut boasts 430 different bird species; and one of the state’s birding “hotspots” are the Norwalk Islands.
Tickets are available online in advance online and are $30 for adults and $25 for children in addition to a small ticketing fee.
