So Hammonasset is one of those known places to go in the summer in Madison, CT. We both have gone to the main attraction, which is the beach, and have had fun camping trips there as well. But a kinda hidden secret we’re sharing today is if you head to Meig’s Point there’s a quiet nature trail behind the Nature Center.
We went in not really sure what to expect, but it’s actually a paved and flat trail with the perfect mix of sun and shade. In the morning we saw people riding bikes, taking their dogs or families on a walk, and a lot of other fellow photographers and bird watching groups.
Here’s a few highlights from what we spotted on our walk.
Throughout the day we kept running into a birding group. Happy we did because someone in the group spotted this Yellow-Crowned Night-Heron and everyone flocked to it. No pun intended.
And to change it up from the bird photos we spotted this Eastern Cottontail Rabbit right as we left.
Overall this was one of our favorite bird photo spots to date. So much so we went two days in a row! Worth it.
