9/25, Fairfield, Pine Creek:

1 Merlin
1 Northern Flicker
1 Downy Woodpecker
1 Eastern Wood-Pewee
1 Eastern Phoebe
1 Red-eyed Vireo
14 Common Yellowthroats
1 Blackpoll Warbler
1 Lincoln's Sparrow
7 White-throated Sparrows-- FOS for me

Trout Brook Valley, Easton: 
I went to the orchard and there was a large flock of sparrows, there were many that went unidentified. In about 2 weeks this will be an incredible sparrow spot, and it looks like a good spot for a rare sparrow. So, if you're near Easton, I would highly recommend going there in a few weeks when sparrow migration is fully underway. Found today:

8 Eastern Bluebirds 
1 Northern Harrier
1 Bald Eagle
1 Red-shouldered Hawk
4 American Kestrels
34 Chipping Sparrows
1 Savannah Sparrow
1 Field Sparrow
1 Clay-colored Sparrow
