Subject: [CT Birds] Sherwood Island State Park highlights
What began as a dreary day weather wise turned in to a spectacular day of birding! First it was 10 warbler species at CT Audubon Society’s Larsen Sanctuary with Miley Bull’s Thursday morning walk and killer views of a Hooded Warbler.

Then it was on to Sherwood Island to check on my patch and another Hooded Warbler!(More killer views)
