“Western CT Shoreline”
Leaders: Maggie Peretto & Tina Green
Six years old Leon loved the great views of the Great Horned Owl. Tina Green set up her scope low so that he could see the owl. He was a great trooper walking under cold weather for a few hours. At Sherwood Island with the leadership of Tina Green, the group enjoyed close up views of a Gannet, several species of ducks, great looks at a pair of Great Horned Owls, Fox Sparrow, a pair of Eastern Towhees and much more. Later we visited a few points in Stratford where we had Great Egret, Snowy Egret, Pied-Billed Grebes, Black and Yellow Crowned night herons. To end the day with a bang we had a close up look at a Snowy Owl. It was definitely a successful day of birding.
