 A canoe trip on the Farmington River through Simsbury today provided additional evidence that inland shorebird migration is well underway as well sightings of other water birds. 6 Wood Duck, 4 Great Blue Heron, 7 Green Heron, 12 Spotted Sandpiper, 8 Solitary Sandpiper, 9 Least Sandpiper.  Post-breeding heron dispersal is also evident with Great Egrets on many inland water bodies like Great Pond State Forest (Simsbury) and Nod Brook WMA ((Avon/Simsbury).
