What you probably had was an adult male Rose Breasted Grosbeak transitioning 
from breeding plumage to winter plumage. About this time of year the breast 
changes from red to a rosy color.

Hi,
I am looking for volunteers for the below program.  It involves walking a
set path once a week from August 20 to October 20 and reporting on the
targeted birds found there.  The walk should take no more than 45 minutes.
Please pass this on to anyone who may be interested.  Thanks, Lori

Audubon CT is seeking citizen scientists (volunteer birdwatchers) to
participate in surveys of Neotropical migrant songbirds during fall
migration, one morning per week from August 20 - October 20, 2012.
Volunteers should have strong bird identification skills and at least a
basic ability to identify common plants.  Our priority sites for the
surveys are coastal sites from Greenwich to New London as well as sites in
the greater Hartford area, but people interested in conducting the surveys
at other sites in CT are welcome to participate as well.  To volunteer or
for more information, contact Lori Mott at zoogirl527 at gmail.com.

The songbird surveys are part of Audubon's new Habitat Oases for Migrating
Songbirds program, which seeks to identify, improve and conserve important
stop-over habitat for migrating songbirds all along the Atlantic migratory
flyway, focusing on urban areas and other landscapes where there is limited
quality habitat.

The program, performed in collaboration with Audubon chapters, botanical
gardens, state and municipal parks departments, and other groups, engages
citizen scientists in migratory songbird surveys of urban green spaces and
rural forest remnants.  The surveys help us to determine the
characteristics of high quality stop-over habitat and which species of
plants are most beneficial as food sources for migrating songbirds. Audubon
and its partners are using the results of this study to:

?      Promote the protection of critical stop-over habitats by helping
government agencies, corporations, land trusts, and other landowners make
informed land use and land protection decisions

?      Improve the quality of public and private lands as stop-over habitat
for migrating birds by guiding the management and landscaping practices of
natural resource managers, private landowners and professional landscapers

?      Develop regionally-specific lists of "bird-friendly" native plants
that may be used to guide landscaping practices in parks, gardens and
backyards

Hi All,

A stop at Grace Salmon today provided for a large number, but not particularly 
diverse group of shorebirds. Mixed in with about 1000 Semipalmated Sandpipers 
was one Western. Apart from that maybe 50 Semipalmated Plovers and a smattering 
of other common shorebirds in very small numbers. In amongst the Semipalmated's 
was an adult bird that was flagged - I couldn't get a number from it but some 
quick online research seems like it may well have been banded on their wintering 
grounds in French Guinea or Suriname, which is cool. In amongst the adults 
Semi-Ps were a couple of juvenile birds which seem fairly early to me? Apart 
from that 2 Laughing Gulls, 2 Yellow-crowned Night-Herons and a couple of 
increasingly common Black Vultures over Route 7 in Wilton were the only other 
notables.

Hi All,

Should probably mention for newer birders that Grace Salmon is in Westport (off 
of Imperial Ave). The last few visits (and in general I believe) the site seems 
to be best on a falling tide a couple of hours after high.

8/6 NO LUCK during a 2-hour search for the possible Sandwich Tern by wading to 
the tidal sand flats off Short Beach, Stratford. Did see 800 Common Terns 
(surprisingly no other species), and an imm. Peregrine Falcon.
Milford Point may be worth checking; high tide is about 3pm.
