Birds in White Memorial Foundation

In early Autumn of 2010, I visited the White Memorial Foundation in Litchfield, Connecticut and took these photos of a hawk (I believe it is a Red Tailed Hawk, Buteo jamaicensis) and a Downy Woodpecker (Picoides pubescens).  White Memorial Foundation is approximatley 4000 acres and has a conservation center and numerous trails, as well as an abundance of wildlife.

The Bantam River also flows through the White Memorial Foundation property and is a very scenic river for kayaking (there is a kayak and canoe access point off of Whites Wood Road).  From the kayak access point, you can kayak all the way to Bantam Lake, depending on how productive the beavers have been – they usually maintain a dam close to the mouth of the river, but sometimes you can work your kayak over the dam without too much trouble.

White Memorial Foundation is one of my favorite places to go in Connecticut for outdoor activities.
