This sanctuary, established and maintained by the Friends of Connie Hagar, perpetuates her memory as well as the migrants that continue to stream through the oak mottes in Rockport. Although diminutive (a little over 6 acres), the Connie Hagar Cottage Sanctuary contains a surprising assortment of habitats. Multitudes of vireos, warblers, grosbeaks, flycatchers, and thrushes may jam the woods during a spring grounding, and the bordering grassy fields are frequently packed with Dickcissels, assorted sparrows, and buntings (Painted included). Check the daily bird list posted in the kiosk to see what others before you have seen. Migration is dynamic, and the collection of birds within the sanctuary may change noticeably each day.
