> I should alert coastal birders that if they happen to see a Roseate tern with a blue leg band, they should try to note the code (its one letter, two numbers)and pass the information on to Helen Hays ([ hays at amnh.org ]( mailto:hays at amnh.org )), director of the research facility on Great Gull Island.  Brendan and I just got back from a wonderful week out there and this year there is a group tracking adult birds with radio transmitters and their young with these colored bands, in order to observe their dispersal patterns from the nesting colony.  I happen to know that at least one of these banded Roseates was recently seen at Harkness S.P. in Waterford CT.

> On Sunday a late afternoon visit to Heron Pond (Griswold) revealed a healthy number of waterfowl and songbirds. ?I was returning after an early evening outing on Friday yielded only a couple wood ducks and a juvenile great blue heron however the marsh holds acres of wetland flowers so this summer it is a more desirable get away. ?On Sunday I wanted a look at species inland under better light and and less aggressive insects. ?Better light revealed many native species I walked right past two days earlier. ? ?
> In the marsh three green herons were mixing with over eight wood ducks. ?Some red-winged blackbirds and eastern kingbirds were actively foraging in the marsh with swallows overhead that I couldn't distinguish from tree swallows. ?Cedar waxwings, song and chipping sparrows, phoebes, and wood pewees ?were attending the edges of the marsh. ?Backyard birds along the trail inland included chickadees, titmice, cardinals, elusive catbirds, woodpeckers, ovenbirds, and thrushes. ? ?
> Saturday evening I was above and beneath Hodge Pond on Myron Kinne Brook (Voluntown) and that area is possibly teeming with birds. ?Several thrushes were seen and many towhees were about. ?Once again it gets risky making an accurate count and the humidity approaches 90% so I concentrated instead on the wildflowers in their woods. With any luck it could turn into a full season for goldenrods and flowering aster. ? ?
