Old Lyme on Smith Neck Rd: It took me over two hours to arrive at Smith Cove Rd boat ramp. The road was hopping with passerines.
Highlights included :
2 FOX SPARROWS
1 BROWN THRASHER
3 PURPLE FINCHES
3 Hermit Thrushes
a flock of Cedar Waxwings
Other birds of interest: Juncos, Swamp, Song and WT Sparrows, YR Warblers, large flocks of Robins, and a late Catbird
The 2 AMERICAN TREE SPARROWS were at the boat launch area.
One of the Fox Sparrows was actually singing its song, which I have only heard once before in Quebec during nesting season. What a beautiful song!
