3/24 - Milford Point:  late yesterday afternoon roughly 1200 gulls were gathered on the Milford Point bars including one large (probably male) first-winter Iceland Gull.  The entire group picked up and flew east then split with about half the group going to the breakwater to roost for the night.  32 Brant, 30 Dunlin, 5 Sanderling and 2 American Oystercatchers were on the bars, as well.

Yesterday at feeder here in Harwinton, had 14 GOLDFINCH and 1 SISKIN. Up to 
ave had only 2 Goldfinch. Today so far have not seen the Siskin, and back to 2 
Of note: Almost daily I see a pair of red Shouldered hawks taking wood frogs 
rom my pond.
oday, saw both hawks in copulation, then I believe the male flew to a tree and 
roke off
 branch and flew with the female into the woods to I presume build a nest.

Spring has come to Spring Pond in Wethersfield. Today I had a Pied-Bill
rebe, a pair of Wood Ducks, 2 Killdeers, a Mute Swan, and a Belted
ingfisher. Pretty exciting for a pond that normally only gets Mallards
nd Canada Geese.
