I have not posted or sumitted my results on the Trail Wood CBC yet but had more catbirds, towhees, a Cackling Goose, and a Marsh Wren, and all the regular stuff too

I reported the highlights of the Storrs CBC count (held Dec17) here a few weeks ago but there really weren't any standout birds (except perhaps a Common Loon and Northern Pintail) seen - despite the fact that we had our highest species count ever! Mild temps and open water held waterfowl species in our area longer than normal.
