The Hartford Audubon Society only owns 10 acres of the Station 43 Marsh in South Windsor. The remainder is private property or is managed by the South Windsor Sportsmen's Association. The part that Hartford Audubon owns, upon which a platform has been erected that looks over the marsh, is accessed by walking down an old farm track between houses that is called the Newberry Road Extension. One must park carefully on Main Street and the track is found opposite the intersection with Newberry Road. The yellow-rumped warblers were at the end of Strong Road, north of Station 43 marsh. Drive north on Main Street and turn left down another farm road opposite the paved portion of Strong Road that goes right off Main Street. Drive past the fields and old barns to the end, then walk right up the edge of the field. Listen for warbler chip notes.

Monica asked a good question! I didn't say where Station 43 was and I should: it is a 150-acre nature preserve owned by Hartford Audubon, located off Main Street in South Windsor. It is a wonderful, productive place to bird but wear boots! Please see the information and map for the property at the HAS website, http://www.hartfordaudubon.org/sanctuary.htm

We were especially lucky to find 3 yellow rumped warblers in the edge habitat at the end of Strong Road in South Windsor, by the river. Lots of birds there -- flickers, downy woodpeckers, a robin, white breasted nuthatches, and more.
