> For ten Christmas counts or so, in Shelton along and up hill from the Housatonic River, we managed to find a TV roost somewhere shortly after sunrise before they flew off.  First in trees in a park along the river, then up hill from there in a neighborhood for a few years, in trees, on roofs, even keeping warm over chimneys.  Over the years they gradually shifted neighborhoods, their roost approaching the confluence with the Naugatuck River.  We almost always found at least a few Black Vultures mixed in.  Then between horrible weather and an apparent shift in their habits, nothing.  Great while it lasted!

> Nice article on 96 year old Chan Robbins in the latest National Audubon. Chan still goes to do volunteer work at the Patuxent Research Refuge in Maryland. Chan is know, from a list of number of accomplishments, as one of the authors of the classic Golden "Birds of North America" field guide and the father of the Breeding Bird Survey. What a citizen scientist Chan Robbins still is.
