A first year Golden eagle was seen by both tour boats today on the CT River between Joshua Rock and Hamburg Cove in Lyme.
The CT River Museum tour boat crowd?watched this Golden Eagle repeatedly interact with a sub-adult Blad Eagle performing multiple talon touches, talon locks and display tumbles. This is only the third time in 15 years of doing Eagle Boat watches that I've witnessesed this kind of display/inter-action between a Bald Eagle and a?Golden Eagle and each time it has occurred it has been between sub-adult birds.

We reviewed the pictures of the reported Bonaparte's Gull below and have revised our report to a BLACK-HEADED GULL. When reviewing the pictures later, field marks which could not be seen with a scope were noted revealing the identity. The bird was seen in the 1st impoundment - north side - from a distance and was last seen flying to the Sound.  I will forward pictures later for those that are interested.

Today on the CT Audubon/RiverQuest cruises out of Haddam, we saw two imm. Golden Eagles. One was up by Amelia Island in Deep River and the other was by Joshua Rock in Lyme. Both were seen on the same trip, so likely were not the same bird.

Good birding!

Hi All

I took my wife Pat over to see the Trumpeter Swans at Konolds Pond in Woodbridge today (Sat 2/18/12). After we looked at them for awhile she pointed out that there was a host of other things to look at. The big attraction today was well over 100 Ring-necked Ducks. I've never seen that many in one place before in my life (I don't get out much). Do you know how hard it is to see the rings around their necks??? They should have called them Ring-billed Ducks - But whatever.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

I went to the RI coast today to do some scouting for the NHBC field trip next week.  I was accompanied by my wife, Marianne.  Around 10 am, we spotted a long-necked, large, white-throated grebe swimming close to shore at the south point of Beavertail State Park in Jamestown, RI.  The bird was very cooperative: it moved along the coast in a northeasterly direction for the hour that we observed it.  The field marks of the bird were easily
observed: the black cap encompassing the dark eye, the dark stripe down the back of the neck, the white cheek and throat, the long, straight dingy yellow bill, and dark back.  It is larger than a Red-necked Grebe and longer necked than a loon. The facial pattern confirmed it as a WESTERN GREBE and not a Clark's.  Unfortunately, we were the only birders there (I had fun showing it to a few interested passersby), and we didn't have a camera, so I am hoping that it sticks around for a while so that others get to see it and photograph it. 


For those CT birders planning on going on the trip next week, hopefully this
will be a good omen for finding good birds.   Black-legged Kittiwakes were
seen earlier in the morning at Beavertail, and a Snowy Owl has been seen regularly at Sachuest Point (although it was not there today).  Other good finds on our scouting trip included a male Barrow's Goldeneye and immature Bald Eagle at Trustum Pond and a pair of Northern Pintail at Weekapaug.  

 

Good Birding,

 

Chris Loscalzo,

Woodbridge
