Went for ride in NW CT today. Mostly back roads in Cornwall/Norfolk/Falls 
village areas. In 3 Hrs we saw only 2 Raven, some Crows and 1 Sparrow. Where are 
the birds! But when driving on Cream Hill Rd Cornwall, near Cherry Hill Rd, we 
spotted an Ad NORTHERN SHRIKE on top of a bush in a very large farm field. My 
guess is, this bird was feeding on the House Sparrows up by the farm barn, for 
this area was otherwise void of birds!
