A glance at the wind turbine in New Haven showed slow but steady NNW wind at 6:00 am, so I was hoping for clouds of blackbirds over East Haven and owls dripping off the Locusts. Instead, the early dawn yielded just a few migrants. A boring but beautiful day of watching clear skies.
(Hawks were 2 SS, 2 CH, 1 imm PG, 1 in-the-Park ML and 1 in-the-Park RT)
Migrants and Park passersby: C Goose 6, Brant 5, Gr Scaup 52, Mute Swan 3, C Loon 10, Am Black Duck 12, Mallard 2, Monk Parakeet 15, Tree Swallow 6, Snow Bunting 9, Blue Jay 4, Am Robin 255, E Bluebird 25+, Palm Warbler 2, YR Warbler 2, Com Grackle 620, BH Cowbird 235, RW Blackbird 1610, E Meadowlark 2, Ho Finch 21, Pur Finch 3, Am Goldfinch 8
