CT: New Haven County- Southbury- Bent of River

I knew after my first visit this past winter this spot was definitely one I wanted to see in the Spring.

It certainly was destined to me as my guide turned out to be this turkey! No offense to the turkey who at times sought to gallop away as I quietly giggled trying to avoid walking through areas which made too much noise.

The Audubon center is quite welcoming as you start your walk beside the winding river.

The boardwalk was shaped liked a slithering snake through the marsh.

Reaching the educational center finds birds and flowering trees with fun photo ops. I returned through the meadow.

I thanked my guide and share it’s a worthy walk with plenty of opportunity to sit by the Bent of River.

I recommend lunch in Woodbury nearby at Marketplace which has outdoor seating and 1/2 price bottles of wine on Sundays and Mondays.
