I spotted them at?a distance in the gated driveway to a hunting area, then they flushed and settled right up close to the gate giving good views.? Later flushed into the corn stubble, never to be seen again.? Also had a first year juv. Bald Eagle.

> A snowy owl flew over Bloomfield Ave. as I drove out of the University of Hartford yesterday (Thursday) headed toward Cottage Grove. Almost rear-ended the guy in front of me! Then, today as I drove on the road at the foot of Talcott Mountain between Avon & Simsbury, I spotted a Loggerhead Shrike puffed up in the sun in a viney tree next to the road a few hundred yards from the intersection of 185 where the large Pinchot Sycamore stands. Haven't seen one of those guys since leaving Kansas. They must be enjoying the warmer temps too.
