Dave's post reminds me how useful this list should turn out to be for
gathering specific information. I mentioned in passing shortly after the
list was up and running that I'd be interested in reports (public or
private) on raven nest sites in the state. The idea would be eventually to
publish some kind of summary in The Connecticut Warbler. We've got quite a
few more people on the list now so I'm going to ask again:
Here are sites I either know of or got recent reports on, in addition to
Dave Bingham's in Salem (ravens in Salem??? Who'd a thunk it??? Amazing
change in status). It pays to be circumspect with all reports of nesting
birds, so general information is fine. Fortunately ravens continue to choose
pretty inaccessible sites.
West Rock Ridge
Beacon Falls Gorge
Lover's Leap, New Milford
Machimoodus S.P., Moodus
Lantern Hill, Ledyard (I think)
Black Rock S.P., Watertown
There are also some historic sites in the northern tier that I haven't
visited in a number of years, so I'll wait to hear the latest on them.
