A Little About Me

Early Spring @ Fort Hale Park

Fort Hale Park is in New Haven located off Woodward Avenue, its between the Coast Guard Station and the US Naval Reserve Training Center. Its a good place to bird in early spring since it will give you some early looks at the spring migrants like Eastern Song Sparrows, Red Wing Blackbirds and the state bird the Robin. There are a few ponds around the area that support some interesting birds at times, I've seen Heron, Yellowlegs and some Egrets. Of course on the Beach side you will find all the normal shore birds for the area like Gulls, Ducks, Cormorants and Mergansers.

If you plan on going to photograph the birds make sure you go early in the morning, this way there is less of a chance you might be approached by some un-desirables.
