Join Connecticut Conservation Ambassador Michael Grady and Goodwin Guide Kat Gayson in this bird education and bird watching event. Not all birds nest in the spring; in fact several birds start nesting or continue to nest in the summer months.  For example, American goldfinches do not even start nesting until June or July. Take a walk along the Goodwin's trails in search of birds. It may help to bring a pair of binoculars to aid in viewing birds at farther distances.
