PledgeToFledge CT By Sea
PledgeToFledge Connecticut is pleased to announce its' kickoff event with a birding adventure by boat on the C. J. Toth Quest catamaran around the beautiful Norwalk Islands, departing at 10:00am on Saturday, April 27, 2013. Pledge2Fledge CT has partnered with the famed Norwalk Seaport Association to bring you this fantastic event.

Pledge to Fledge (P2F) is an international grassroots campaign to introduce friends and acquaintances to the vibrant pursuit and observation of wild bird species. It is a terrific opportunity to share your love for birding with others, and to help people discover the allure of wild birds while connecting with the natural world around them. Bring a friend, neighbor or colleague to share the magic of birding and the outdoors. Come SEE Birds. SHARE Birds. SAVE Birds.

This exciting adventure will take participants on a two hour boat cruise of the Norwalk Islands. This will enable accompanying friends and non-birders to experience the thrill of searching for, observing, and identifying birds and other wildlife that may be found here. Very few people get the opportunity to get up-close and personal with the wildlife that we will encounter on this trip! We have arranged for experienced observers to help locate and identify the Island's incredible wildlife. This trip is designed specifically to give the new birder the opportunity to see birds in their natural habitats and experience the joy that comes from such encounters.

We invite you to bring a fledging birder and join us for a spectacular opportunity aboard the 45-foot C. J. Toth Quest catamaran. The shallow draft allows close approaches for great viewing, photography, and to study the incredible bird life found on Long Island Sound. In late April, the Norwalk Islands becomes a treasure house for nesting birds. Thousands of colony nesting species including herons, egrets, gulls and cormorants along with other species may be within a birds' eye view from the boat.

Temp: There can bea big difference between land andboating temps at this time of year, sometimes 20-30 degrees, other times 0. It can't always be predicted. Please keep in mind that the weather on the boat will probably be 10 to 15 degrees cooler than on land.

Clothing: Wear layered comfortable clothing & supportive footwear. Perhaps wind proof shell jacket over fuzzy jacket or vest, gloves, ball cap/beanie, along with sunglasses, sun block, binoculars, and cameras.
