August 27: Killam’s Point Shore Birds

shorebird2Shore birds’ migration begins early with the many species moving to their winter homes. Have you ever heard an oyster catcher laugh? An osprey shriek? Seen an eagle snag a bunker? Watched the dabbling and diving ducks eat lunch?

Join us on Saturday, August 27 at 10am for this exciting new Killam’s Point event led by local naturalist Martha Rice. The event is co-sponsored by the Branford Land Trust and First Congregational Church of Branford.

Killam’s Point, an ecological treasure owned by the church, has healthy forests, secluded beaches, wide salt marshes, granite bluffs and a fascinating array of flora and fauna. Those taking advantage of the collaborative effort of the two organizations will have the opportunity to enjoy one of the largest, privately-owned undeveloped tracts on Long Island Sound. Be sure to mark your calendar for “Killam’s Point Fall Foliage” coming up on October 22.

The events are held at Killam’s Point on Shore Drive just west of the Orchard House Adult Day Care Center. Please drive SLOWLY to the end of the road to the parking area. Bring water. Walking sticks welcome. For details, call 203-747-4184.
