Center, I flushed an AMERICAN WOODCOCK that flew off through the
woods. I nearly had a heart attack!

the street, about 25 ft off the ground!
Farmington, yard -- YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER continues at suet.
Farmington Meadows (Meadow Road) -- 1 ROUGH-LEGGED HAWK (light); I got
great looks at it hovering before the resident Red-tail chased it off,
sending it north.
