This evening had a flock of about 30 Common Nighthawks fly over my house
heading east. A few minutes later they returned, this time heading west.
Guess they had to make a correction in their flight path!

I observed this bird this morning along Rt 202 in New Hartford. I was able
to get two photos of it.?
I'm thinking it may be a leucistic red tail hawk.Any thoughts on this?

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"

While birding at Station 43 yesterday, I saw what I had assumed was a
Red-tailed Hawk soaring high above, when I noticed it didn't have the dark
bar on the leading edge of its wings. Further inspection revealed
translucent windows where the primaries meet the wingtips, making me think
Red-shouldered Hawk. My question is: Are the translucent primaries enough to
I.D. it as a Red-shouldered Hawk, or is this common in other hawks. I have a
picture (a really bad one) where you can see what I am talking about,
concerning the primaries. Thank you for any help.

from Glenn, Beth, Madeleine, & Eliza Williams:
8/23 - Stonington, Stonington Point, ~6pm -- 10+ BLACK TERNS, 4 COMMON EIDER

Probably another 20 or so Black Terns well beyond the south breakwater and
out of Connecticut waters.? It was too far and too hazy to be sure, plus
there were Common and Least Terns and Laughing Gulls at various distances
milling around plus at least one Bonaparte's Gull.? There was also one
Brant.? No storm-petrels but a lovely evening.

I'll be away for a few days, so anything related to list administration is
almost certain to be delayed until I return.  Thanks for your patience.

Good birding!

I conducted my first Habitat Oases survey of the fall this morning at
Birdcraft (314 Unquowa Road, Fairfield) and while it wasn't particularly
birdy, I saw the following reportable neotropical migrants:  *American
Redstart, Eastern Kingbird, Eastern Phoebe, Baltimore Oriole.*  I noted that
the Kingbird was eating porcelain berries rather than hawking insects, which
I thought was interesting.  I looked on the Cornell website and saw that
they eat fruit in the tropics, so I suppose it's not unusual for them to
also eat fruit on migration.  Is this something others have noted?

Some of the kingbirds I observed at Bluff Point this past Sunday were eating
wild cherries at the "hot corner".? I wondered if it was a little early to
be switching over.? I have also wondered why Eastern Kingbirds are one of
the first species to clear out in fall if they can survive on fruits.
