Join Peggy MacLeod at one of the most productive inland bird watching sites in Connecticut to enjoy seasonal birding for rails, herons, songbirds, ducks, sora, bitterns, and flycatchers. Station 43, a wetland bordered by farmland and wooded areas, is owned by Hartford Audubon and is comprised of a shallow pond and extensive marsh and with reported sightings of 229 bird species. Although the trail is flat, the unavoidable muddy areas make the site not accessible.

Preparation: Because water often covers parts of the path, fully waterproof high boots are required to bird at this location. Bring binoculars, a scope if possible, bug repellent, water, and snacks. We will meet at 7:00 am to carpool from Sheldon Field Park and Ride, 26 Old Ferry Road in Northampton. Station 43 is located at 953 Main St. (Corner of Newberry Rd and Main St), South Windsor, CT.  We will park on the east side of Main Street not blocking any driveways or mailboxes and walk west from the intersection on what starts as a rutted driveway to the right side of a private yard. Please note there are no restrooms at this location. Ending time is flexible. Questions? Contact Limited to 12 participants. Please register online at least two days in advance of the trip.
