By popular demand, Sunrise Birding will offer a series of Guided Bird Walks this spring!  Join professional tour guides Frank Mantlik and Julian Hough to explore birding sites on the central Connecticut shoreline. Learn how to find and identify spring migrants and nesting landbirds, hawks, shorebirds, and terns with the experts! Field marks, behavior and bird song will be emphasized. Most walks will range from 2-4 hours, weather permitting. The fee for walks is $10 per person per walk unless otherwise noted and online registration is required for all sessions.  Use the links below to register for the walks:
