Sorry for the lateness in reporting this but Monday (July 20) evening in Pachaug State Forest just north of Wyassup Lake in North Stonington I flushe one woodcock and heard another bird coming down from a display flight.  As usual at 8:40pm the whip-poor-wills starting calling and flying around.  I heard a total of 5 and saw 2 others.


Today in Scotland I watched a juvenile Yellow-bellied Sapsucker trying to find insects in the top of a telephone pole.  It made a few tentative taps around the pole before being spooked by a passing car.
