Fall Migration Birding Walks at Allen’s Meadow and Its Community Gardens

Join expert birder, conservationist, and Wilton resident Joe Bear in search of migrating birds at one of Connecticut’s birding hotspots. The event, being held on Sept. 23, Oct. 4, or Oct. 18, is hosted by the Norwalk River Watershed Association, and are held at the Allens Meadows Park on Danbury Road in Wilton.

It’s fall migration and time to join expert birder, conservationist, and Wilton resident Joe Bear in search of birds making a stopover at Allen’s Meadow on their way south to their winter homes. We’ll check out the bluestem meadow, woodland, edges, pond, and the community gardens. Fall sightings in recent years have included bobolinks, dickcissels, numerous warbler species, a variety of flycatchers, a wide range of sparrows, bald eagles, and other raptors. And who knows what unexpected migrant might put in an appearance!

Joe Bear has been birding for over 30 years, having led both domestic and international trips for CT Audubon and other nature-based organizations. Joe enjoys sharing his passion and enthusiasm for birds and believes that experienced or novice, there’s always something new to learn every time we pick up our bins.

Events are held rain or shine. Bring your binoculars.
