Machimoodus State Park Trip Report – May 14, 2022
Written by Rob Mirer – Trip Leader
On a lovely mid-spring day (May 14), 5 Hartford Audubon members met at Machimoodus State Park in East Haddam. A total of 41 species was seen. Among the notables, there were several singing Prairie Warblers, Indigo Buntings, and Orchard Orioles, a Pileated Woodpecker, and a Worm-eating Wabler that was seen singing from well up in a tree. One member had a close-up look at a male Blackburnian Warbler. 4 Red-shouldered Hawks circled overhead together with occasional calls. Machimoodus SP contains several different habitats that attracts a wide variety of species.
Join us next year (2023) at this delightful birding spot.
