Did a quick circuit of Riverbound Farm in Cheshire this morning, after a great walk with Corrie Folsom O'Keefe over to Hanover Pond and the Q-Trail, in Meriden. Due to the fact there is always noise and trucks from the Whole Foods Warehouse and the various greenhouse/farms that now come right down to the Quinnepiac River, birding is often hit or miss. Today was "OK", with Red Bellied woodpeckers and a male Flicker, a Blue Heron in the Q, and FOY Warbling Vireo and several Yellow warblers and a Black Throated Blue, in the Butterfly Garden. The Tree swallows are back, out the Bluebird boxes. This was my first run over there since last fall and as it's a pleasure to take that 30 minute walk around the property. There are a lot of deer around that area also, and I noticed extensive damage to the plantings around the farmhouse and the paths. While I was there, had 4 does run ahead of me, one very pregnant, down the main trail.
