In between rain showers I walked over to Sherman School in Fairfield.
I have seen great birds there in the past-when the fields flood it is  
a haven for shorebirds and waterfowl. In the fall the marsh is a  
sparrow magnet.

The three Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers were the biggest surprise of all!  
I could not believe it when I saw 3 in the same tree!
The House Wren seems late-haven't seen one in a few weeks.
On the 9th I thought I had a Clay-colored for a minute but the bird  
took flight and I wasn't able to relocate it.

This place is terrific! Every time I go I see great birds!
