Wednesday morning, with Ernie Harris:

Sta 43: Virginia Rail (thank you Sara Z)-very early (Paul D's earliest record for Sta 43 is Apr 18th!). (Sara-we were not sure we heard the Marsh Wren; this is an even more amazing record-a full 2 months earlier than expected at Sta 43).
But we did have, in addition to Sara's reported ducks, a male Pintail, a male Green-winged Teal, and 2 female Hooded Mergs.

Vibert Rd: 6 Green-winged Teal

On the Ct River: 1 DC Cormorant, a few distant Common Mergansers.

Ferry Rd: 1 adult Bald Eagle soaring, but none seen on the nest.
Vesper Sparrow teed up and singing away. It was not a territorial song-no introductory notes. Just a continuous beautiful warble given sotto voce (sounded very finchlike). 
Fish Crow

On way home today, I went up River Road in Southbury and saw an immature bald eagle feeding on a fish in a tree.

Also, in field on North Purchase Rd (?) near dam, saw: mockingbird, 4 red wing blackbirds, 5 starlings, a song sparrow, 1 blue jay.

Normal stuff in field but eagle was neat to watch.

I stopped by Sikorsky Airport the other day and ran into Mark Szantyr. "What are you up to?" I asked. "Looking for European Golden-Plover," Mark replied. "Me too," I said. "By the way, have you put together our talk on rare birds for the COA annual meeting this Saturday at Middlesex Community College?" I asked with a slight touch of anxiety. "No," came a very wide-eyed response. "Haven't you?" And so was hatched a hastily organized 2 a.m. meeting in an all-night halupki joint in New Britain with free wi-fi access. We quickly pulled down a stunning array of boot-legged images that got us excited about our talk to the point of intoxication (or maybe we fell under the spell of meat and cabbage as only a Pole and Czech can do).

At any rate, we hope we see a lot of you there for all of the interesting programs. We'll try to answer seldom- (maybe never?) asked questions like when is the most likely time to see a Chestnut-collared Longspur in Connecticut, or why should you be suspicious of the most innocent-looking oriole.

Also be sure to check out the photo quiz in the lobby. If we get more than one person brave enough to submit answers, we might invite the winner on stage for some good-natured abuse.

 CT Birders -

 Timing is everything sometimes! As I was walking out of the house to close the clinic for the evening I looked up to see a black bodied - white headed bird  coming right at me flying up over my house! What a surprise!  I cannot imagine where the bird was coming from! The eagle continued to climb until it was quite high and then headed south. 

Very cool! New yard bird to add to the list!

I just heard a strange noise as I was walking the dogs, I think it was a
bird but maybe not.  The sky was just starting to get light.  It was a loud
series of screeches, sounded almost like a duck or goose alarm call but a
lot rougher and almost more metallic (if that makes senses).  There was a
series of several short, fast screeches then they slowed down a little and
came further apart and then stopped.  I heard this noise given several times
with maybe 30 seconds to a minute in between.  I have no idea what this
could have been, does anyone else?

 

I also heard a Wild Turkey gobble in the woods.  Yesterday the Winter Wren
was singing.  Do they breed around here or is he just warming up for his
trip north?

 

Thanks!

Julie,

We've had red foxes calling and one in our front yard yesterday around 3:30-4AM, probably doing their mating calls.
