White Memorial Conservation Area
Over 4,000 acres of bogs, marshes, river, stream, fields, hills, lakes, and ponds, near Litchfield, Connecticut. A very pleasant walk. Over 20 miles of trails. You couldn't possibly be dissapointed. Most definitely check it out if you're ever in the area.

You could spend a week checking out the trails and never be dissappointed .Unless it rained all week and thats highly improbable.You`re within about an hours drive to the beach.Many State parks within a 1/2 hours drive.
Breeding Alder Fly - as reliable as any spot in CT, Blackburnian Warbler, YR Warbler, BT Green Warbler breed as do RB Nuthatch, Purple Finch, YB Sapsucker, Also a good place to find Virginia Rail on the aforementioned boardwalk.
In migration almost anything can show up in this massive park thanks to the large size and varied habitat of the park.
White Memorial is one of the more reliable and probably the easiest birded sites to find winter finches in CT. A good place to find Ruffed Grouse and in winter Bantam Lake seems to turn up good numbers of uncommon CT waterfowl, Snow Geese, Barrow's Goldeneye, Northern Shoveler, RN Grebe.
