​6/10  Milford, Connecticut Audubon Coastal Center,  10am-12:30PM, mid tide
70-75F Sunny.
Our ospreys are doing well. The male brought in a fish around 10:50am, and
the female proceeded to feed the three chicks.  Boy, they grow quickly.
There was also a pair of ospreys circling over "our" nest, but it did not
disturb our pair.
There are a few tree swallows nesting on the grounds now, since a generous
neighbor erected many nest boxes.  The Purple Martin condos are active,
with juveniles in a few boxes.
On the marsh: 9 Mute swans, 5 Great Egrets, 2 Snowy egrets, some "peeps"
too far out to identify, 1 yellow crowned night heron stalking,  Least
Terns, 2 D.C. Cormorants,.
On the grounds:  Cardinals, Mourning doves, Robins, Common Grackles,
American Crow,  Song sparrow.
Lots of visitors today.
Bev Propen, Orange
