This morning Nick Bonomo and I birded the northwest corner of the state
looking for finches and other northern birds. We found a Northern
Shrike near the intersection of East St. N and Whist Pond Rd. The bird
was teed up in a distant tree in the field southeast of the intersection
(we saw it while looking almost straight south from approximately 100
yds east of the intersection). We also found a single flock of about 20
Common Redpolls feeding in a stand of Tamaracks on Hageman Shean Rd.
However, besides this, we found no Siskins, Crossbills, or other
For CT Daily:
