While at the Case Memorial Library in Orange, I happened upon  a book
titled Finding Birds in Connecticut  A Habitat  based guide to 450 Sites by 
Dave Rosen & Gene Billings  (1996).
What a great find!  Now I understand where everyone gets  the names of each 
trail, pond, wooded area etc.   I am probably the  last person in the bird 
club to discover this.  It has  easily understood maps and directions.  It 
is broken down into  chapters for each county, and then further into the 
parks, beaches, wildlife  management areas for bird viewing.  It discusses the 
best seasons to view  each area for optimal birding.  Also mentions  the 
different species  most likely to be seen at each area during each season . (No 
discussion here of  the capitalization of the species).  Great index with 
list of "tours" one  can take walking and driving in different areas of 
Connecticut.    Thanks Dave!
