Subject: [CT Birds] confirming breeding for the atlas
Many thanks to Jack Swatt and Dave Provencher for their great posts about the atlas this week. It's really helpful when people share tips on how to add or confirm breeding species and add to the growing atlas database. 

Jack's comments about woodpeckers are spot on - now is a great time to confirm breeding simply by walking through the woods and listening for young clamoring in their nests.
Along similar lines, I put together a blog post with tips on how to move species into the confirmed breeding category - a major goal, especially for blocks that already have a lot of species detected. The post is here:
