8/19 Milford, Connecticut Audubon Coastal Center 9am-11:30am, dead low
At 9am, the osprey nest was empty with no sign of any of the brood. At
9:20am, one osprey flew over the marsh, and after that, no sign of the
ospreys. I assume they were out fishing, since the tide was so low.
On the marsh: 4 Black bellied plovers, 3 Semipalmated Sandpipers, mixed
flock of 21 Black ducks and mallards foraging in the mud and low water,1
Great Egret, 3 Snowy Egrets, 5 D.C. Cormorants further out, 6 Mute swans,
1 Juvenile Yellow crowned night heron, 1 Willet, 1 Ring billed gull eating
On the grounds: 3 Purple Martins flying , 1 Mourning dove, Robins,
Grackles, 1 Flicker, 1 Cardinal.
Lots of butterflies which I want to learn about.
