6/19 Milford, Connecticut Audubon Coastal Center, 10am-1PM, low tide,
rising, overcast, 70F.
The Purple martin colony was busy (about 14) this morning, with a chick's
head poking out to be fed around 9:55am.
Our ospreys have 3 chicks now. Most of the morning, the female was on the
nest and the male on his perch, with the chicks either sleeping or
preening. An occasional stray osprey flew over, which caused a lot of
calling from our pair.
On the marsh: 1 Snowy Egret, 4 Great egrets, 1 American Black duck, 27
Mute swans, 2 D.C. Cormorants.
On the grounds and feeders: 2 Song sparrows, 1 singing Yellow warbler, 4
House finches (2 juveniles), 4 Robins, 6 Common Grackles, 2 Mourning Doves,
1 Red winged Blackbird, 1 Carolina Wren, 1 House wren, 1 Mockingbird, 1
Blue Jay, 1 Cardinal, House sparrows.
One very large, rotund woodchuck, 1 rabbit and a squirrel at the "squirrel
proof " bird feeder.
