From Bill Asteriades:
01/18/15 - Enfield, Barnes Boat Launch -- drake BARROW'S GOLDENEYE.
The bird was feeding near the Rt 190 bridge which may best be accessed
via the end of South River Street (viewed from the road). The birds
are quite active so it could be in a large range from the Rt 190
bridge north to the cemetery. Record picture posted to eBird.
From Jim and Carol Zipp:
01/18/15 - Hamden, yard -- 23 Rusty Blackbirds. Pretty much on
schedule for our backyard, Rusty Blackbird numbers have begun to
build. Typically mid Jan is when the become more regular. For the
last few weeks it's only been a few here and there. Also a single
Pine Siskin at the thistle (with the goldfinch).
