In Woodbridge and Orange, at the Racebrook Tract. We took a long hike through this 200 acre property this morning, doing some early scouting for the CT Bird Atlas. We found some nice birds, including an Eastern Phoebe, a Gray Catbird, Fox and Swamp Sparrow, and two Pileated Woodpeckers. We are immediately seeing the side benefits of doing the atlas as we spent more time than usual looking for nests high in trees. We didn't find any active nests, but we did locate a PORCUPINE sleeping high in a tree. Contact us offline if you'd like directions to its exact location. Full report on ebird.
