Want to know every time a rare bird is spotted in the state? Who wouldn’t?
To appease this need, the Connecticut Audubon launched its Rare Bird Alert, a new free service that lets users know when a rarity is seen. When people sign up for the service, they will receive alerts via text message (the Audubon estimates there will be one or two a month on average). Interested bird lovers can also text BIRD ALERT to 52886 to sign up.
