Hi all,
Here is a run down of the latest postings on the Connecticut  
Ornithological Association's web site - _www.ctbirding.org_ (http://www.ctbirding.org) 
The 111th Annual Christmas Bird Count Schedule is online  at this link:  
The 15th Report of the Avian Records Committee of  Connecticut is also 
online at: _http://www.ctbirding.org/15th_arcc_report.htm_ 
Species Index for the ARCC Reports 
We  have recently completed updates on the Species Index  for the ARCC 
Reports online at: _http://www.ctbirding.org/index_of_reports_by_species.htm_ 
It  provides an interesting historical perspective on the occurrence of 
rare species  in Connecticut.  For example, did you know that Burrowing Owl has 
been  documented twice in Connecticut?  Please forgive the color coding on 
the  page. It was a tedious project and the only way to remain sane and 
organized was  to use colors for each section.  At least it is up to date!
North American Bird Phenology Program
Also posted is  information sheet on the North American Bird Phenology 
Program.  Historical  migration records are currently being scanned and are 
available on the NABPP web  site (_www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bpp/_ 
(http://www.pwrc.usgs.gov/bpp/) ). You  can become one of the many volunteers from around the 
world to sign onto the web  site and convert these files into the Program's 
database. This will allow the  migration records to become accessible for 
analysis.  For more information,  go to

Good birding!
