East Hartford, Hockanum Linear Trail -- No Red-headed Woodpecker
found, but GREY-CHEEKED THRUSH (we debated long about it's being a
possible Bicknell's, but decided on Grey-cheeked because we saw no red
at all on its tail or primaries, and because it did not sing to give
us any other indicators.)

05/11/12 - East Hartford, Cabela's Pond -- 1 TRICOLORED HERON

From Sara Zagorski with Jonathan Trouen-Trend:
05/11/12 - East Hartford, Cabela's Pond -- around 4:30 PM; Tri-colored
Heron tucked well into the weeds on the side closest to the parking
lot, so that when you first pull up you might not see it. When we got
out of the car Jonathan could see the head, and when I moved closer to
the pond, I could see it too. Then it disappeared, coming out again
after a few minutes. We were standing right on the edge of the pond in
order to see it.
