Birds & Bagels

Join Kent Land Trust and Laurie Doss for Birds & Bagels. Apply your knowledge from Saturday’s Warbler Workshop to identify birds in the field near the entry to Skiff Mountain South Preserve. Bagels and yogurt will be served by the Kiosk to the preserve. During breakfast, participants will identify by sight and/or sound. Extra binoculars will be available for participants who do not bring their own. Mist nets located on Kent Land Trust and Marvelwood School property will also be set-up to band birds and collect physiological evidence of breeding. Participants will help collect data for the Connecticut Bird Atlas Project and listen for warblers common to early successional areas such as the Common Yellowthroat, Chestnut-sided Warbler and Yellow Warbler. At the end of the program there will be an opportunity to see the breeding colony of Purple Martins at Marvelwood School. Those interested in hiking after the program may venture out on their own to hike one of the four trails traversing Skiff Mountain South Preserve. It is best if participants wear long pants and socks to help protect against tick exposure. The use of insect repellent is also highly encouraged and will be available at the workshop. Please Register.
