Stratford is home to several designated Important Bird Areas in Connecticut. Ducks, Loons, Gulls, Hawks, and Owls are just a few of the birds that inhabit the Long Island Sound coast and salt marshes in the winter months. Join Audubon naturalist Ryan MacLean as we look for these birds and more at several locations such as Audubon Connecticut's Stratford Point, Long Beach, and Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge. One particular target species will be the Snowy Owl, which has been seen regularly in Stratford in the past several months. This will be a special opportunity to possibly get a glimpse of this visitor from the Arctic.
