> If you are at Abigail’s Restaurant in Simsbury, take a right out of the parking lot and cross the bridge over the Farmington river. Take your first left just over the bridge into a parking lot. There is a bench by a beautiful Sycamore tree. I was sitting there facing the parking area towards the information sign when what I think was a scissor-tailed flycatcher flew by. The tail was so distinct. I tired to locate it but think it flew across the river so no luck!
