WEST HAVEN, June 12, 2018 — Beginning this summer, sharp-eyed bird-watchers in Connecticut will start noticing something new about the state’s treasured American Oystercatchers (AMOY) — yellow leg bands.
The birds aren’t making a fashion statement, this bling is part of Audubon Connecticut’s American Oystercatcher Banding Program, an exciting effort designed to help protect the species of conservation concern across the state and throughout the Atlantic Flyway.
The city is participating in the project at the Sandy Point Beach & Bird Sanctuary.
