Hi All,

 

I just found another historical CT birds book.  This is a much longer read,
it covers almost 300 species in CT, includes many arrival dates of migrants.
This book may be more useful for entering into ebird, or for other
historical purposes.  It puzzles me that the author seems worried about the
number of migrants that die each year striking lighthouses, yet he seems a
bit thrilled having shot birds for specimens.  I know, shooting was fairly
common pre 1900's.
