Things that do not make me go GRRRR ....
>From Jamie Meyers:
5/12 -- Mansfield -- male LAWRENCE'S WARBLER. The bird was along a powerline cut reached via a path south of the road about 1/4 west of Mansfield Hollow Lake. This path goes down to one of the lakes.
Windham, Windham Airport -- EASTERN MEADOWLARK singing and showing well near the beginning of the dike trail.
Brookyln, in farm near Canterbury town line on CT 169 -- EASTERN MEADOWLARK in large already hayed farm field along with a bunch of Bobolinks. Orchard Orioles were across the street. Several WORM-EATING WARBLERS were duking it out in the woods just north of this site.
Scotland -- Pudding Hill WMA -- HOODED WARBLER near the beginning of the mail trail. ACADIAN FLYCATCHER singing deep in the woods in approximately the same spot.
Canterbury -- farm off CT 169 -- PURPLE MARTINS in a house where I had them a number of years ago. A couple years ago the house was infested with starlings and House Sparrows so it's nice to see them back.
Chaplin -- Pumpkin Hill Road -- CERULEAN WARBLER, as previously reported by others.
Canton yard (Meyers Wildlife Sanctuary) -- adult WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW
Add the two life butterflies I got on the CT Butterfly Association walk and today was pretty darn good. If you don't love this time of year check yourself for a pulse.
For the record, I should add a very late drake Ring-necked Duck on Bristol Res 7 yesterday afternoon.
