Land Trusts potential birding spots?

Over the last couple of years I have become more aware of what is known as land trusts: A non-profit, non-governmental charitable organization that helps interested landowners and communities find ways to protect their land from over-development so it can continue to provide open space, habitat, clean water, scenic beauty and other values of public benefit.
I have noticed that there are several of these land trusts in Connecticut. Each one has land that could be potential birding spots. I have visited some of the properties owned by land trusts. Some looked pretty good while others weren't even accessible. I'm going to start to add some links here. It may take a while so it should be an ongoing process. If you've been to any of these places I'd like to hear about it.
