IntoBirds is thrilled to partner with Grace Farms Foundation to offer a series of guided fall migration birdwatching nature walks, free to the public, on Saturdays throughout October and November at Grace Farms in New Canaan, CT.
Reneé Hewitt and Daniel Samperi, co-founders of intoBirds, a new online magazine, community and resource for all things birds, and Mark Fowler, Nature Initiative Director at Grace Farms Foundation, will help bird watchers of all ages discover and identify the 40+ bird species that thrive on Grace Farms’ 80-acre preserve.
“Fall migration is a fantastic time to grab your binoculars and see parades of amazing high-flying travelers,” says Reneé Hewitt, president, and co-founder of IntoBirds. “Millions of birds travel thousands of miles across oceans and continents during migration, so you never know what birds you might see on any given day.”
With three ponds and 80 acres of open meadows, woods, and wetlands, Grace Farms is frequented by American Kestrel, Red-tailed Hawk, American Goldfinch, Northern Mockingbird, Pileated Woodpecker, and Red-bellied Woodpecker, among many other bird species.
“I believe that birdwatching is one of the best ways for someone to be inspired by nature and to connect with the huge diversity of life that exists right in our backyard. Here at Grace Farms, we are lucky to have a plethora of bird species that inspire awe and wonder in all that visit and explore,” says Mark Fowler, Grace Farms Foundation’s Nature Initiative Director.
Grab your camera, bring their binoculars and share your photos with hashtags #intobirds and #gracefarmsct.
