Re squirrels. From Lisa again forgot to mention that in the woods yesterday on my walk. I saw 2 squirrels 1 was on a small tree on the ground the other 1 on a tree coming down and that 1 stopped and reached out and seemed to wave to the other one. I thought that was cute.

I filled my bird feeders over 3 weeks ago and almost nothing has been
touched.  The squirrels usually take up their positions at my feeders
from dawn to dusk with the birds waiting in the wings (excuse the play
on words).  I see the squirrels running around with the large green nuts
in their mouths and the residue from them is everywhere so I'm guessing
there is plenty of natural food for them this season.

No Nick, you are right of course, they aren't the same, and I  did give 
directions to the Rocky Hill meadows.  So used to seeing them  mentioned
I 
didn't read carefully.

Thanks Don. I wasn't right about anything though, since I figured they
were the same place after reading your directions. I was really just
looking for confirmation that there were two different names for the
same place. But this works too :)

Looking forward to checking out Glastonbury Meadows this autumn for
sparrows. Sounds like a very productive place.

Angela, if no one else has a burning need to have them, we can always
use the magazines at the CT Audubon Coastal Center. Contact me at:
fgallo at ctaudubon.org, and we can figure out? how to get them..? Thank
you.

With regard to Glastonbury Meadows (which, as the name suggests, is in
the Town of Glastonbury), virtually all of the land (700+ acres) is
privately owned by farmers and the Glastonbury Sportsman Association.
Town residents and local birders walk certain parts of the property,
which has not created a problem with the land owners.  It is used for
hunting so there is limited birding in the Fall and Winter (Sundays only
but certain Sundays are off-limits due to field trials and other
events).  To access the Meadows, park behind Academy School at 2155 Main
Street, near the Skateboard Park and Waste Treatment Plant.  Walk
towards the Waste Treatment Plan (left side of the plant) and you will
see a short trail leading to the river.  Follow this trail and then take
a left at the river on another trail.  Follow for about 1/4 mile and you
will be in the Meadows.  Cross the grass field to the main dirt road.
You can take a left to bird the pond or right to bird the Meadows.
Please stay on or near the main dirt road and it would be best to not
proceed more than 3/4 mile or so down this road (people walk their dogs
on this road so birders should be okay).  The habitat is more diverse
than at Rocky Hill/Wethersfield meadows (which are directly across the
river), with extensive tracts of weedy agricultural fields and brushy
borders that attract impressive numbers and diversity of sparrows and
other songbirds during migration.

For the past couple of weeks, gray squirrels have been missing (?) from

the

They've been missing for over a month at my house. I mentioned that fact
to a co-worker and she's had the same experience. Here it was, I thought
that the new squirrel baffles I bought were really working! I do see
them rummaging through the woods surrounding my house so they're there;
just not ransacking my feeders. Actually the nut population seems to be
up this fall too. I've seen a lot of black walnuts on the streets, more
than usual. Perhaps, like pinecones, the nuts are abundant?

At this time of year, most wildflowers have gone to seed, thus providing
a
natural food source.  Once that's gone, birds will be returning to
feeders.
After the dearth of mast (nuts) of recent years, this appears to be a
good productive year, providing food for the squirrels, turkeys and
deer.

John Philip and I birded Bluff Point in Groton this morning. Conditions for the northwest corner (sometimes referred to as the hot corner) were iffy last night but we gave it a shot anyway. Well the winds were due west during the morning flight window so the birds were jumping straight westward into the wind instead of funneling to the NW corner. Movement was pretty heavy once it started and we decided to walk the loop instead. 11 species of warbler were found among roughly 800 individuals. It turned into a remarkable Blackpoll show. They were everywhere with one pure flock of over a hundred. I haven't ever seen this quite to this degree before. In the limited time we had the following birds;

Common Nighthawk (1)
Red-eyed Vireo (1) remarkable that there was only one
Tree Swallows (8 at least dribbling through)
Ruby-crowned Kinglet (2)
Nashville Warbler (2)
Northern Parula (7)
Magnolia Warbler (1)
CAPE MAY WARBLER (1 bright male)
Black-throated Blue Warbler (8)
Yellow-rumped Warbler (10)
Palm Warbler (4)
Bay-breasted Warbler (1)
Blackpoll Warbler (600+)
Black-and-white Warbler (2)
American Redstart (1) This many warblers and only 1 Redstart is very surprising
Unidentified warblers (150+)

Very interestingly there were no Tanagers, Grosbeaks, Orioles, or Bobolinks.

>From John Philip and Dave Provencher:
9/30/09 - Groton, Bluff Point - CAPE MAY WARBLER (1 bright male), BAY-BREASTED WARBLER (1), 800 warblers of which over 600 were Blackpolls.

The Dickcissel was located at the west end of the field area west of the parking lot. I think that it was a juvenile.

Silver Sands: 1 DICKCISSEL, savannah sparrows, song sparrows, 1 swamp sparrow and 1 field sparrow

The Dickcissel was located at the west end of the field area west of the parking lot. I think that it was a juvenile.

Hi all Lisa here east hampton. I haven't seen a lot of squirrels in the yard however the woods near my place have been loaded with them; I have noticed a lot of nuts in the woods to and on the side of my road. I have also seen them carrying nuts in there mouths so the crops seem gd.
