4/13 eve, Somers yard 9th District Rd., when leaving the barn after feeding 
the horses, I noticed a "lump" in the middle of the pasture that I first 
thought was a rabbit but upon closer inspection was most surprised to 
discover a NORTHERN BOBWHITE.  It was a female or juvenile, had buffy 
colored throat, and eventually started pecking its way across the pasture 
then started to run when it noticed the dog, eventually ending up in the 
woods behind the house where it still is pecking around in the leaves.  A 
new yard bird and my first siting of one in CT!
