BIRDING CONNECTICUT

Connecticut is a compact destination—you could drive across it in just two hours. But with almost 450 recorded species, you’ll want to pause and get out your binoculars.

The state’s diverse habitat includes rich grassland and farmland, wetlands and riparian habitat, forests and woodlands, rocky and sandy islands, and an extraordinary and extensive coastline. The beaches along the north shore of Long Island Sound offer ideal locations for viewing shorebirds, especially during migration, and also serve as prime feeding and breeding grounds for seabirds, and waterfowl—often in large numbers.

Whether you choose shorebirding along the coast, woodland birding in the northwest, or eagle watching along the Connecticut River, this state offers many birding delights.
