Winter Waterfowl Walk at Connecticut College Arboretum

February 3, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

The section of the Thames River from Mamacoke Island to Smith Cove is one of the best spots in eastern Connecticut to see wintering waterfowl. The site includes three coves and two salt ponds that provide important habitat for a variety of ducks that spend the winter in Connecticut. Consequently this site, which is a natural area within the Connecticut College Arboretum, has been designated as an Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society. During winter, the coves support several waterfowl species plus Bald Eagles, Pied-billed Grebes and American Coots. Dress for the weather. Scopes will be provided.

Date: Saturday, February 3, 9 to 11 a.m.

Host: Robert Askins, Katharine Blunt Professor of Biology

Meet and park at the east end of Benham Avenue (Waterford) just before the railroad tracks.

Cost: $10 (free members), registration required
