Hello, CT birders,
  My folks and I checked the Harris' Sparrow spot in Lebanon and had the bird within 20 minutes.  Also present were at least two White-throated Sparrows, two Savannah Sparrows, a Song Sparrow, and many swallows.  Nice one for southern New England!

A pair of Broad-winged Hawks was circling over Cedar Mountain in Newington
today.  They're the first I've seen in town since 2009.  Also about was an
FOY Yellow-rumped Warbler.

Extra-liminal, but of interest.

Fence Is Behind an Explosion of Life in a Wild Corner of Hawaii

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/17/science/birds-of-kaena-point-hawaii-enjoy-a-revival-thanks-to-a-fence.html

Seabirds such as Laysan albatrosses and wedge-tailed shearwaters flourish on Kaena Point as a new predator-proof fence keeps cats and mongooses out.

Down here at Queens College, the various Mocking Birds are singing a lot.

One heard briefly sounded a lot like the QC fire alarm bells!

4/16 - The distinctive "wheeping" of a Great-crested Flycatcher greeted me
as I went out to get the morning paper.  FOY.
