Old Lyme DEEP Headquarters this afternoon:
Tons of sparrows!!
Song Sparrows everywhere.
White-crowned everywhere, easily outnumbering White-throated. (All WC were imm. except for one.)
Many Chipping and a few Savannah Sparrows
At least 20 Swamp Sparrows
1 Clay-colored Sparrow in left side yard of main building, flew off to the river side of the road
1 Blackpoll Warbler along with numerous YR Warblers. Blackpoll was to the right of the portopotties in the trees and briefly on the ground eating a moth.
On my way out I stopped at the little hidden sanctuary called Shippee Pond (small gated driveway on the right just after you exit) and birded for a while with John Gaskell who got me on a Lincoln’s Sparrow! First of the year for me!!! Thanks, John.
