Long weekend in Conn. for a family event. Searched for inland shorebirds in late afternoon on Sunday.
Paid a visit to the pond behind Cabela's in East Hartford but it was dead. An adult Peregrine Falcon zipped by, scaring the nearby flock of Starlings and Cowbirds. A small pool of standing water on the lawn across the street had no shorebirds, just ducks and geese.
Afterward I visited part of Farmington Meadows. Fields were muddy, lots of mosquitoes. Some shorebirds - 6 Semipalmated Plover, 32 Killdeer, 3 Least Sandpiper.
