Not a big deal 7 months of the year, but a House Wren is always a nice find in December. I had one this morning at Veterans Park in Wallingford, which is just east of I-91 on E. Center St. off Exit 14.
The park has a community garden. I (and others) have mentioned in the past that these gardens are great birding spots in fall and winter (note Harris Sparrow in Allens Meadow community garden not too long ago).
The wren was near a little stream behind the garden, which was filled with sparrows including 3 or 4 Field Sparrows. Also in the general area, over toward Mackenzie Res., were a couple of N. Harriers and a male Am. Kestrel.
