Best wishes from all of us at Connecticut Audubon Society! May 2011 be full of wonderful surprises!My new year certainly started off well when this little Eastern Screech Owl emerged from the bird house in the front yard of my in-laws! It's a nice reminder that exciting discoveries can be made in one's own yard. It also shows that with some effort it is possible to create habitat and resources for all kinds of wildlife close to home. For the 112th year running, Connecticut Audubon Society's education, advocacy, science and conservation programs will continue to do just this: improving our state's natural areas by creating and managing wildlife habitat on our own 19 sanctuaries and by educating and supporting others to do the same elsewhere. We hope you will help us along the way!
