Nick Bonomo recently queried: "The story I had heard about the wintering
Westport birds involved an over-zealous collector killing most of the group
one winter, which was the last time they were seen. Is there any truth to
that whatsoever?"
Nick is mostly correct, except that there was more than one collector
involved. A check of the specimen trays at Connecticut Audubon's Birdcraft
Museum and the Yale-Peabody Museum will answer the question as to where
those chickadees now reside.
