Pete Thayer's Favorite Hot Spots:
Audubon Center in Greenwich
41.02 N 73.63 W
This 522 acre sanctuary is a great spot for beginning birders and is good almost any time of the year.
Hammonasset Beach State Park
41.26 N 72.55 W
Over 285 species have been seen here. Visit in the spring, summer or fall. Follow the 3/4 mile trail around the salt marsh to see many of the birds.
Lighthouse Point Park
41.22 N 72.91 W
Watch for Hawks overhead in the fall from this spot, near New Haven. The surrounding woods are also very good for fall migrants.
41.24 N 72.78 W
This is one of the best spot for birds in the state. Of the 400 species known in Connecticut, over 300 have been recorded here or nearby. Very good for shorebird and waterfowl migrations. Fall landbird migrations can be very good, though recent habitat loss has hurt.
White Memorial Conservation Center
41.73 N 73.23 W
35 miles of trails and interesting 4,000 acres of interesting habitat make this the best birding spot in northwest Connecticut.
