Subject: [CT Birds] South Windsor - Strong Rd and Station 43 - Monday 1/29
Strong Road:
Yellow-rumped Warbler, in the ice-bound trees in the flood plain at the end of the road;
RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET, also at the end of the road.

Station 43 highlights:
Turkey Vulture
Cedar Waxwings 21
Chipping Sparrow
Field Sparrow
YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD, presumably the same bird found by Jay Kaplan and Sarah Faulkner yesterday on Vibert Road. Today it was in a mixed flock of Starlings, a few Red-wings and at least one Cowbird -- but no Grackles at all. They perched for about 15 minutes in the tree belt on the north side of the cornfield beyond the Hartford Audubon Society's observation platform overlooking the marsh. I will post adequate photos on eBird.
