Not much around except for an American Kestrel and a few Palm Warblers but the big news is they are demolishing those ugly barns!

I was able to catch up with the RI Wood Sandpiper this afternoon with 
Tina Green, Phil Asprelli, and several others. We had the bird 
foraging almost oblivious to our presence. Cool bird.

Hello birders: 

After many years of volunteering her time and expertise Maria Stockmal will no 
longer be leading the Saturday morning, monthly bird walks at Kellogg 
Environmental Center in Derby. 

So that the birding program can continue the center is looking to the birding 
community for a new volunteer to lead bird walks. Traditionally, they have been 
on Saturday mornings once a month starting at about 8:00am. If you are 
interested in helping develop the bird walk program beginning in January of 2013 
we would love your help. The walks attract beginning to experienced bird 
watchers of many ages. Please contact Susan Quincy or Donna Rose Smith at 
203-734-2513 or susan.quincy at ct.gov

Seen with Renee Baade and Neil Currie at Stratford Marina at about 5:00 
p.m. yesterday. It was at the far end of the mudflats by the bridge on 
Broad Street, just before the Marina. We puzzled over it for several 
minutes, finally IDing it as a Stilt Sandpiper before it went out of sight 
around the corner.

I just saw the Western Kingbird on the west side of Sasco Creek Road at the CT Audubon Tree Farm on Westport.It was on the tree that Frank saw it in last night and then flew west across the field to a tree. If you come, look on both sides of the farm as it is moving around quite a bit.

I was in Jamestown for the Wood Sandpiper Sunday afternoon. Great bird and fantastic light at the end of the day.

Also, a White-crowned Sparrow at UConn Lot W yesterday along with lots of Savannah Sparrows in the nearby community gardens.
