11/03, Stratford yard/woods- There must have been a nice movement last night, proving the prediction on this list that those birds upstate moved down here. My woods and edges were covered with about 60 Juncos, over 20 White-throats, 8 Flickers, and my first FOX SPARROW of the season. A nature sighting that may be of interest to the list happened on Sunday. I found 2 Brown (Dekay's) snakes in the lead litter on the wood edge. I then took a quick poke around, and 20 minutes later I saw a Robin slurping one up! My best guess is that the bird thought the snake was a large night-crawler...which, in my woods, I have found to grow to over a foot when stretched out. Anyone hear of this behavior before? Also a ton of waterfowl continue at Wooster pond and park. 6 species of ducks and several dozen Canada geese that may warrent a peak. Many Juncos there also. -Brian Webster- (sent from phone)
