This afternoon at Station 43 in South Windsor (Newberry Rd) with
Carolyn Sedgwick were at least two LEAST BITTERNS, one calling almost
constantly that went unseen plus three nice flybys of a second bird
(probably more than one involved). Was slightly surprised at the
midday activity of the bitterns. A good strategy seems to be to walk
to the marsh clearing (where one would have to wade across the road to
proceed) and just be patient...a flyby at some point seems likely if
today was any indication.
At Cabela's in East Hartford we had 3 UPLAND SANDPIPERS, two singing
GRASSHOPPER SPARROWS, two EASTERN MEADOWLARKS and a female AMERICAN
KESTREL. Also Bank Swallows and Savannah Sparrows.
