Please note the following slight revision to the July field trip to  
Station 43 and Great Pond Forest.  An additional stop at the  
Rentschler Field grasslands will be included.  The date, time, and  
meeting place are unchanged.

Saturday, July 11, 7:00 AM:  Station 43 and Great Pond State Forest.   
Free and open to the public.
Join us as we go to several excellent birding locations in the CT  
central valley.  Our first stop will be the grasslands near  
Rentschler Field in East Hartford.  We may see Upland Sandpiper and  
Grasshopper Sparrow there.  We’ll then head to Station 43, along the  
CT River in South Windsor.  There, we’ll look for Least Bittern,  
Green Heron, Wood Duck and other freshwater wetland species.  After a  
break for brunch, we’ll go to the Great Pond Forest in Simsbury.   
We’ll look for the Mississippi Kites that nested near there last year  
and have returned.  Also, we can expect to see a number of  
interesting pond and woodland species.  Meet at the commuter lot at  
7:00 am on Route 68 in Wallingford, west of I-91 at Exit 15 (at the  
east end of Barnes Road).  Leader:  Chris Loscalzo: 203 389-6508 or  
closcalz at optonline.net.
