Golden-crowned Kinglet, Song, White-throated, and Savannah Sparrow were abundant in all locations I surveyed today in Stratford. Brown-headed Cowbirds are grouping up. Yellow-rumped Warblers made a big push out last night, though some remain with Palm in many areas. The Connecticut Audubon Society managed Stratford Point is having a great sparrow season as usual, and we're starting to get some waterfowl in. If you're interested in a Stratford Point walk with Twan and me on a weekday watch for information here soon.
