Lake Whitney heronry thrives; photos & video on CT Audubon FB page. You can see most of them from the Waite Street bridge or just east.
Also, Wigeon, FOY Egret, lots of Tree Swallows, & a couple of singing C. Wrens.
(Btw, we’ve had a resident Brown Creeper at North Lake: seen 9x March & 13x this winter.)
