Subject: [CT Birds] COA Shorebird Identification Workshop this weekend!

Have you ever wanted to learn how to identify sparrows?  This group has a reputation of being difficult to identify and there is even a term for group, LBJ's (Little Brown Jobs).    Well now is your chance to learn about identification of sparrows from some of the top experts in the state and you may just find that LBJs aren't nearly as intimidating as you thought they were.  This year's COA Sparrow Identification Workshop will be held this Saturday at Barn Island, for more information please see below:

Sparrow Identification Workshop at Barn island Wildlife Management Area, Stonington CT sponsored by the Connecticut Ornithological Association Saturday October 6th 8-11A.M. FREE

Leaders: Dave Provencher, Milan Bull, Chris Elphick (not confirmed)

As a group of generally small brown birds, sparrows pose some identification challenges for birders at all levels. Learn the tricks of identifying different sparrows from some experts. We'll begin the program at the parking area on the right, just before the boat launch, at the end of Palmer Neck Road. After an introduction and handouts, we'll explore a variety of early successional habitats and salt marsh in search of migrant and resident sparrows.

Patrick Comins, Meriden

PS In other news, at least 15 Purple Finches at the Bent of the River today.
