A beautiful day to be at the coastal center-actually felt warm. With the
snow on the marsh and LIS sand-it was like a postcard.

2 White throated sparrows, 2 Song sparrows, 5 House sparrows, 4
Chickadees, 2 Goldfinches, 46 Starlings landed in a tree top, 10 Mourning
doves, 2 Mockingbirds, 2 Downy woodpeckers, 1 Hairy and 1 Red Bellied
woodpecker.
On the path to the Long Island Sound and a walk along the shoreline (very
low tide),-
lots of deer footprints, bird footprints in the snow.
About 400 Canada Geese (many tucked in along the shoreline and many
flyovers) , 1 Northern Harrier , about 24 Brant , numerous Herring gulls
and a few Ring billed gulls, flock of about 25 Horned Larks at end of sand
bar, along with 4 Snow Buntings sitting & preening on a washed up log ,
many American Black ducks , 1 Common Loon, 1 Red throated loon- further out
on the sound.
Several walkers along the beach.
