From Scott Kruitbosch:
11/01/11 - Stratford yard -- 2 YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER, 1 late Blackpoll Warbler, plus 1 Eastern Phoebe, 1 Swamp Sparrow, 1 Ruby-crowned Kinglet all in Gallinule Pond along with 11 Canada Geese, 3 of which were sporting neck bands that I promptly reported. There were many birds around the warm wetlands and pond, a common theme around this time of year. The Blackpoll actually fed on the lawn in and around a group of 20+ Juncos.
And if you're up for it, name this migrant bird from the backside: http://ctaudubon.blogspot.com/2011/11/name-this-migrant.html
