The Ct Audubon's Smith Richardson Sanctuary (Xmas tree farm on Sasco Creek Rd.) is well worth a visit for anyone in the area. I stopped by this morning again and had not seen Frank Mantlik's posting from yesterday until just now. Great looks at all the birds. Wish I could have stayed longer as birds kept appearing.
