If you frequent Darrow Pond in East Lyme.  Apparently it is a great birding area.  You may want to complete this survey, which is open to town residents and others.  There are some proposals floating about to convert the wild habitat here into active recreation areas and it would be good if they heard from people who visit the site for birding.  The survey can be found at the bottom of the page here:

Darrow Pond is one of the areas where Whip-poor-wills have been found
recently and are listed as a species of Special Concern.  Unfortunately
they do not appear in the Natural Diversity Data Base section of their
Environmental Review Report.  I must admit that I am very behind in
submitting sightings of state listed birds to the NDDB, but this shows how
important it is to submit reports on a timely basis since
development projects like this can happen at any time.  It would be nice if
there was an easier way to submit sightings, but for now it is just a
paper-based system.  I'll be submitting my Whip-poor-will sightings and
mentioning that on the survey, but I encourage everyone to submit reports
of listed birds or any other listed species they encounter.  For
those unfamiliar with the reporting system, more info and reporting forms
can be found here:
