This afternoon in a farm pond behind a farm shack on Holcomb Road in East Granby there was a Snow Goose among 150 - 200 Canadas.
This morning I birded several towns in lower Tolland County looking for birds of the season. Highlights included about half a dozen Rusty Blackbirds at Raymond Brook Swamp in Hebron. That was my 200th species for the county. There were several Purple Finches in a small wetland off CT 85 behind a church, also in Hebron. A powerline cut off CT 316 yielded a Nashville Warbler, just the second one I have seen all year. It was pumping its tail, which think I read somewhere is more typical of Western Nashvilles.
Not much in the way of sparrow action but a few interesting things all the same.
