NORWALK ISLANDS BIRD WATCHING
June 9, 16, and 23, 2019
Calling all bird lovers!
How would you like to have a National Geographic type of wildlife experience right in your own backyard this summer? It’s as easy as joining the Seaport Association for one of its amazing, up-close, educational bird tours.
Join us on a 3-hour cruise of the Norwalk Islands to explore and understand the importance of our many migratory bird species and their behavior., including nest sites and nesting colonies of ospreys, egrets, American oyster-catchers, herons, terns, gulls, cormorants and many others. Participants will witness many of these birds at a safe, yet awe-inspiring distance.
Preston Lust, a local who grew up as a passionate wildlife and bird enthusiast, will conduct our bird watching tours on these dates. Preston is an officer in the Connecticut Young Birders Club who has a special interest in nocturnal migration and has conducted research on nocturnal flight calls for the last three years. He has also participated in bird-watching competitions such as the World Series of Birding and the Megabowl of Birding (the latter of which placed first place for three years straight!).
Cruises will be on June 9th, 16th and 23rd. Cruises on the 45-foot C.J. Toth Quest catamaran depart at 8:00 a.m. from the Seaport Dock at 4 North Water Street, adjacent to the Stroffolino Bridge at the corner of Washington and Water Streets in South Norwalk.
