3/13 Milford, Connecticut Audubon Coastal Center, 10AM-1PM, sunny,
41-51F, mid tide - rising, marsh free of ice.
Viewed from windows facing marsh.
Walking to the building was like listening to a serenade....cardinals,
Grackles, Red winged blackbirds, robins, all singing. Spring is almost
here. Our ospreys should be back next week and that is the official start
of spring for me.
On the marsh: 9 American black ducks, 2 mallards, 71 Green winged teal,
110+ Brant, 2 Gadwalls (the male was head bobbing, following the female), 4
Canada geese, 11 Buffleheads, 5 Red breasted mergansers, , 1 Northern
harrier, 11 mute swans, herring & Ring billed gulls.
At feeders and on grounds: Robins, 2 mourning doves, 2 Song sparrows, 2
American Tree sparrows, 2 White throated sparrows, 11 House sparrows, 4
pigeons, 2 House finches (pair), 16 Red winged blackbirds (11 immature
males, 4 adult males and 1 female), in with too many to count Common
Grackles, 4 Common redpolls, 2 Cardinals (pair).
