Subject: Re: [CT Birds] Amazon Basin Birding / Yellow Fever
I was vaccinated for yellow fever before my month long trip to Kenya. It’s a live vaccine, and was definitely treated differently than the rest. I felt a little woozy immediately upon administration, but after that, I was fine. I should add that I was given six other vaccines in the same visit. I’m glad I did it. I didn’t think twice about it and I don’t have to worry about it for future trips. I would be more concerned about what you are given for malaria and food poisoning.

> At the risk of posting something not about CT birds, I am looking for some insight (not medical advice!) about birding in the Amazon (or for that matter other Yellow Fever endemic areas). CDC recommends that people traveling to the Amazon be vaccinated for Yellow Fever which I have not been. I have no problem with vaccines - I’ve had just about everything else one can think of for travel to India and southern Africa - but not Yellow Fever. OK, so what’s the issue? The vaccine is contraindicated for people over 60 owing to an increased risk of serious side effects (including death!). Surely I’m not the only person over 60 in CT’s birding community to travel to the Amazon. So what has been other people’s experience? Got the vaccine, no problem? Went anyway unvaccinated, was really careful about avoiding mosquito bites? Some context on what other people have done would be really useful in deciding what my wife and I should do as we contemplate such a trip. Thanks for any insight.

Subject: [CT Birds] Lighthouse Point hawk watch
Today at Lighthouse Point in New Haven we had about 200 diurnal raptors on
northerly winds in a cloudless sky. Most numerous were Sharp-shinned Hawk
(74) and Cooper's Hawk (61). There were 10 Bald Eagles (2 adult) and what I
think was the first good push of Buteos (16 Red-shouldered and 14
Red-tailed).

The early passerine flight was dominated by Red-winged Blackbirds (1400)
and American Robins (450). There were a few American Pipits and Eastern
Bluebirds and a steady presence of Tree Swallows.

Thanks to Sol Satin, Tina Green, Bill Banks, Tom Murray, Eli Holton, Sara
Zagorski, Gina Nichol, Steve Bird, Dean Rupp and Abby Sesselberg for eyes
on the sky. .

Subject: [CT Birds] Kittiwake late - buzzer beater
As Tim already reported, the gulls apparently scattered from the Breakwater they were on at about 4:30 PM or so. When I arrived at Sasco beach, there were quite a few gulls flying around the sound and also sitting on the rocky shore, but none of us could pick the kittiwake out from that crowd. I noted a lot of gulls on the beach west of Sasco Beach and decided to try and get closer to those birds. Not much luck there.

Anyway, as late was beginning to fade I went to the small parking area at the end of Harbor Road. There is a little park on the west side of the mouth the harbor there from which a person can scan. Tim had told me that the kittiwake seemed to hang in the vicinity of the several Bonaparte’s Gulls that are around. I saw a Bonie and then a moment later another bird caught my eye, swimming close to shore and almost out of sight as it was heading around a bend. Fortunately, I was able to get a good but quick look and confirm that it was in fact the kittiwake. It even flexed its wings out so I could see the diagnostic ink spots. Literally seconds later, it went behind a bush, from my vantage point, and I never sought again. I did go back to Sasco Beach to try and get another look, but by that point the sun had gone down and it was too dark. I feel very fortunate to have even spotted the bird at all.

Just a note – not being from the area, I’m not as familiar with the ins and outs of it as many on this list might be. I followed a pin from an eBird checklist and it took me to what I believe is the wrong beach. It took me to a private beach there’s access by driving through the country club. And that didn’t seem right to me. I don’t know if all the checklists that are out there have pins that direct a person there, or if in fact that’s where people have been seeing the bird from. I found it rather confusing.

At least one VESPER SPARROW clearly seen flying from the grass alongside
the “back driveway” into Ashlar Village, not the driveway with the
Masonicare at Ashlar Village sign. The bird flushed into the roadside brush
and brambles.

Subject: [CT Birds] Amazon Basin Birding / Yellow Fever
At the risk of posting something not about CT birds, I am looking for some insight (not medical advice!) about birding in the Amazon (or for that matter other Yellow Fever endemic areas). CDC recommends that people traveling to the Amazon be vaccinated for Yellow Fever which I have not been. I have no problem with vaccines - I’ve had just about everything else one can think of for travel to India and southern Africa - but not Yellow Fever. OK, so what’s the issue? The vaccine is contraindicated for people over 60 owing to an increased risk of serious side effects (including death!). Surely I’m not the only person over 60 in CT’s birding community to travel to the Amazon. So what has been other people’s experience? Got the vaccine, no problem? Went anyway unvaccinated, was really careful about avoiding mosquito bites? Some context on what other people have done would be really useful in deciding what my wife and I should do as we contemplate such a trip. Thanks for any insight. Please reply off line. <lar.mystic...>

Subject: [CT Birds] Hammo: 9 sparrows (including Vesper, White-crowned, and Field) plus towhee
Hello, CT Birders,
A friend from Rhode Island and I had a very enjoyable day of birding at
Hammonasset today. Almost all of the sparrows were in the campgrounds
behind Swan Pond. The Vesper was associating with Chipping Sparrows and an
immature Palm Warbler. We also had at least ten White-crowneds, mostly
mixed with White-throats. Other sparrows included Song (far and away the
most common), Swamp, Savannah, and Junco. Other birds of interest were a
Merlin, Blue-headed Vireo(s) on Willard Island, two Palm Warblers, and a
Pine Warbler.
Also an immature Osprey flying over the Singing Bridge in Westbrook.

Good birding,
Andy Scholten

They both spent a lot of time bugging through the fall asters,
goldenrod, and crabapple tree, although they didn't share well, tussling

kinglets!
Eastern phoebe is also still in our yard, taking advantage of the

Subject: [CT Birds] Say's Phoebe Preston
I wasn't going to post this because the bird was not relocated, but since
the word will get out to some due to eBird alerts I decided to post this.
Today after birding Bluff Point I was birding in the yard to see what was
around. Our yard backs on a dairy farm and I was standing by the stonewall
between us and the farm when I heard quite distinctly the flight call of
Say's Phoebe. I heard the bird call three times moving east to west but the
terrain and vegetation blocked my view so I never saw the bird. This was at
about 11:45 a.m. I searched the area for a total of 3 hours or so on and
off for the rest of the day but never found the bird. Coincidentally, this
afternoon Julian Hough sent me a link to an eBird checklist from Long
Island this morning that included a Say's Phoebe. Very much unlikely to be
the same bird of course.

Subject: [CT Birds] Hawkwatch at LPP on Friday
Contrary to all the forecasts, the wind did not turn NW until late morning,
(staying W) so we did not achieve the count we had expected. Over 300
raptors came through once the wind direction was right, including a
dramatic young NORTHERN GOSHAWK. It swooped in to harass a local adult
Red-tailed Hawk which was on the lawn just north of us. The RT didn't want
that fight, and took off. We were left open-mouthed, staring after the
fierce, barrel-chested beauty of a Gos rocketing across the harbor. Wow.
I will post details tomorrow morning. Joe Cala got a photo of the Goshawk.

Walked a neighbor's farm fields in Preston this morning hoping for Vesper
Sparrow. Managed to find one (possibly two but not sure) as well as a
Lincoln's Sparrow. Fewer sparrows than I'd hoped for overall with less than
200, the predominant species being Savannah. Also had an American Pipit
circling the fields but not landing to my knowledge.

Subject: [CT Birds] 10/16- Storm Birds, Stratford
Yesterday afternoon I stopped by Long Beach in Stratford to see if anything
was getting blown around offshore or if anything decided to roost on the
beach with the intense winds. The Beach itself was fairly quiet with a
handful of the usual Gull species. The entrance to the Beach however was
swarming with about 300 Tree Swallows which appeared to be hawking small
insects low to the road. I then noticed a feeding flock of Gulls on the
marsh side (looking towards the airport) which included an unexpected 18
Forster’s Terns.

It was a beautiful morning at Durham Meadows. Our Sunrise Birding crew saw hordes of Yellow-rumped Warblers (70ish),  several Palm Warblers,  Savannah, Swamp, Song, White-throated, and 4 Field Sparrows, five species of Woodpeckers, including Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, a Cooper's Hawk, and a Raven. We also enjoyed watching a group of Eastern Bluebirds feeding on the lawn.

We then went to McKenzie Reservoir and found the Greater White-fronted Goose and also saw a Ruddy Duck and 12 Wood Ducks.

Subject: [CT Birds] Killingworth Tricolored Heron
10/16  5:15 pm Killingworth.
We saw a large heron-like bird (but smaller than a great blue heron) glide in and land at the edge of our pond.  While gliding in, the wings were clearly 2 toned light and dark.  The bird walked along the edge of the pond for about 100 ft until it went behind foliage and was not relocated.  The bill was long, straight and pointed appearing to be lighter on the top and bottom.  While walking, a white area was seen on the shoulder by the front of the wing.  The leg color was gray, and there were white areas on the under side of the bird.  Comparing with photos and illustrations in Crosley and Sibley, we are confident in the ID as a tricolored heron and not a little blue, snowy, or reddish egret.

This noon at Bates Woods Park, I came across a good collection of warblers of several varieties, which was a nice surprise given the date.
1 Orange-crowned Warbler (Gray-headed), 1 Tennesee Warbler, ad. male, 1 Nashville Warbler, 1 Common Yellowthroat, 1 Palm Warbler (Western), 2 Yellow-rumped Warblers (Myrtle), 1 Black-throated Green Warbler3 warbler sp., flyovers
I checked the BT Green well. It wasn't a Townsend's :) I would have liked a longer look nevertheless.
Sparrows were still plentiful but of lesser variety. Most notable was 45-50 Savannah Sparrows at the back field near the brush dump.
Feel free to PM me for more info.

Subject: [CT Birds] Flycatchers-a request
As many birders know this time of year, and into early November, has a proven track record for producing rarities.Many are stealth vagrants and none moreso than the empidonax Flycatchers and tyrannidd, "yellow-bellied" kingbirds.Anyone finding a late season empid/tyrannidd should bear in mind the possibilities that in may not be a local eastern migrant or the "expected" Western Kingbird.Empids are hard to see and little attention is paid to them in spring or summer. Faced with one in fall, they often appear familiarly unfamiliar. It is easy to assume it is a Least than go through the mental obstacle course of eye rings, mantle tones and primary projection assessments.Calls are important clues for unearthing a vagrant flycatcher and the difference between a "pip" and a "whit" could entail a special journey for birders to a bush near you!With reports of Least and Willow this week in the state, it is a time when rarity-minded birders are pondering these reports in hope that something is overlooked.If anyone sees an Empid, they can try and document with pix, and/or audio recordings, since it would help establish true identities of these difficult-to-ID species.Or maybe you don't care...that's ok too!'Tis the season.

Subject: [CT Birds] Dickcissel-fest; White-eyed Vireo
Dickcissels have been everywhere. I only had one this morning at Hop Brook
Lake in Naugatuck, but it was my 4th since Sunday (one Sunday at East Shore
Park and 2 at Lighthouse Pt Monday, all in New Haven).

I had a really enjoyable White-eyed Vireo this morning at Hop Brook, and I
especially enjoy everyone of these birds I see. This one was
extraordinarily bright - extensive brilliant yellow flanks and as
completely yellow "spectacles" as you could hope to see on this species.
How does this happen at this time of year? The key was the completely dark
eye. This was a first-winter bird freshly molted out of it's juvenile
plumage. Very recently this would have been a comparatively drab bird in
its worn juvenile (or if you prefer juvenal) plumage. Sibley, as he so
often does, illustrates the comparison and timing of this well.

--Yellow-green Vireo (Vireo flavoviridis) (1)
- Reported Oct 15, 2019 11:00 by Sean Williams
- Monomoy NWR--Lighthouse, Barnstable, Massachusetts
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=41.5592952,-69.9938123&ll=41.5592952,-69.9938123
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S60657242
- Comments: "***Mega. 2nd state record, and only 4th north of Florida, with all records from banding stations: Plum Island, MA in September 2011; Kiawah Island, SC in September 2016; and Cape May, NJ in September 2018. This record was banded by the Monomoy Bird Observatory banding team.

While walking north toward the lighthouse, I was pishing at bushes along the way at ~12:05. Only about 100 feet south of the lighthouse, I pished at a dense bush that was 2-3 ft tall and about 5 feet from the trail. A small warbler flew out, which turned out to be an Orange-crowned, and a medium-sized passerine, clearly larger than the Orange-crowned. The bird was flying away, though at an angle. From that angle I could see a concolor olive green back and tail, and very bright yellow flanks. Originally, when I first saw the bird, I thought it was a vireo, but the yellow on the sides was very bright and extensive enough that I thought it might cover the entire belly. I thought perhaps a tanager, but this bird was too small, or maybe a chat, but this bird was shorter-tailed and paler on the back than a chat. It landed in the bush, now about 30 feet away and in full sun, and in binoculars I could see I was correct that it was a vireo. I had a total side view of the bird for two seconds, with the bird facing almost directly left. I could only see the upper wing, the breast, and the head. The first thing that struck me immediately was the extensive, bright yellow on the sides of the breast. The yellow was a bright lemon yellow as on, for example, a Nashville Warbler. It wrapped mostly around the side, and I could not quite tell where it ended from my view. Next, the paleness of the face struck me. Two primary field marks struck me as unfamiliar. First, the lores were quite pale and washed out, certainly paler than the cap. I remember it just being a pale grayish between the eye and the bill, and that it was paler than the cap. Next, the white on the throat washed far into the auriculars such that there really were no auriculars to speak of, with a hint of olive toward the rear of the head. Otherwise, it had a dark cap, a whitish supercilium, and some gray going behind the eye, about as dark as the lores. The back was a solid green-olive with no wingbars. The bill was large and hooked, and clearly appeared larger than what I would expect on a Red-eyed. In flight, I thought the bill looked very thick, which is partly why my mind briefly went to something like a tanager or chat. I saw the bird for a full two seconds, and then it hopped down. I texted a few people, including Jeremiah Trimble, Marshall Iliff, and Tim Spahr that I had "just had an extremely yellow revi type video [sic]" and they urged documentation and  video of the "video."

The second I saw the bird perched, my heart jumped and my brain told me it wasn't a Red-eyed Vireo. But then another part of me said it couldn't be a Yellow-green, because that's too rare. So I was scrambling and freaking out and didn't know what to think, but persisted giving short pishing bursts at the bush. The Orange-crowned was responsible, but not this bird. After about 15 minutes, I walked around to the bander's table and after we exchanged hello's, eventually I asked what they had caught today. They hadn't seemed very excited, so I didn't expect to get much of a response. However. they said as a matter of fact they had caught something interesting and showed me a picture of an obvious Yellow-green Vireo. My heart just about leapt out of my chest and my fingers went slightly tingly. I exclaimed that I had just seen that bird around the corner, and they said they had just captured it and released it at 11:52 am. I spent the next four hours with very few passerines compared to the morning, with most encounters as birds flushed from small bushes."

Subject: [CT Birds] Smith Richardson, Westport- Dickcissel plus
Throughout the day-
I had what I’m fairly certain to be a BLUE GROSBEAK chipping along the SE
corner of the first meadow (near edge of neighbor evergreen screen and
fence). An abundance of Song Sporrows and a single Bobolink also present
here with a handful of Palm Warblers (majority tipping to Western now).
Field Sparrows have seemed to have made a push as well with about 5 present
at Smith and another 7 or so at Stratford Point early in the morning.
Ruby-crowned Kingsley’s are on the move with individuals ‘singing’ and
zipping around throughout the day. A very bright (first year female?)
TENNESSEE WARBLER quickly moved through the Goldenrod just south of the
Northern evergreen plantings (east of the Town property). Phoebes are still
in good numbers with about 10 on the property as well.

We had a wonderful time and productive walk today on our Sunrise Birding tour at Allen's Meadows, Wilton. In addition to a beautiful morning, highlights included nice looks at Vesper, White-crowned, Chipping, and a slew of Savannah and other sparrows, Indigo Buntings, 2 Bobolinks feeding in the foxtail grass, and a late Scarlet Tanager. We were also treated to views of both a Belted Kingfisher and Pileated Woodpecker flying by the garden. We finished the morning watching Eastern Bluebirds, a Nashville Warbler and a Blue-headed Vireo feeding near the small entrance pond. My next walk is Wednesday at Durham Meadows.

Subject: [CT Birds] Milford Point Big Sit 10/13
10/13 Milford, Milford Point - Our annual Big Sit team counted birds from 4:30am to 7:00pm. Among the tentative tally of 92 species, the biggest rarity was an EARED GREBE spotted early morning by Frank Gallo and seen on and off through the day in the main salt marsh tidal channel N of the outer dune platform (west of the last beachouse). Other highlights included: Am. Wigeon, Gadwall, No. Pintail, 3 COMMON EIDERS, 13 Surf Scoters, Wild Turkey, 3 Clapper Rails, AM GOLDEN-PLOVER, WHIMBREL, Spotted Sandpiper, Long-billed Dowitcher, 6 Bonaparte’s Gulls, 2+ Forster’s Terns, 4 BLACK SKIMMERS, Great Cormorant, American Bittern, 2+ Bald Eagles, Merlin, Peregrine, Common Ravens, Marsh Wren, Am Pipit, Nelson’s & Saltmarsh Sparrows, and Dickcissel. The sunrise, moonset, sunset and moonrise were all spectacular!

Thanks to the 14+ birding visitors who stopped by to offer support (while looking for the Eared Grebe). This Count was conducted as a fundraiser for the CT Audubon Coastal Center. Anyone wishing to contribute can contact the Center at 203-878-7440.

for the event is as follows:



Sparrow Workshop

Saturday, October 19, 2019 from 8:00 am to 11:00 am

Hammonasset State Park, Madison

Improve your identification skills of the numerous sparrow species that are
found in CT by attending this workshop. We will have an indoor review
session followed by a walk through the park. We'll review how to
differentiate between similar species and gain a greater appreciation for
this remarkable group of birds. October is the height of sparrow migration
and we may see ten or more species on the trip. Meet at the nature center
parking lot at the east end of the park at 8:00 am. The workshop is free
and open to COA members and non-members alike. Advance registration is not
necessary. Leaders: Chris Loscalzo, et al. Contact person: Chris Loscalzo

Subject: [CT Birds] LIS: New Haven to Groton (King Eiders, Royal Terns+)
Phil Rusch and I surveyed the CT coast via boat from New Haven to Groton
today. We found pockets gulls and terns to look through, with the greatest
concentration occurring off Old Saybrook and Westbrook. Laughing Gulls
dominated, and we had a good few thousand of them overall. There were
perhaps a combined 75 or so FORSTER'S TERNS. No Common Terns were seen. Two
to four ROYAL TERNS were off the coast of Sachem Head in Guilford.
BONAPARTE'S GULLS were scattered about as well, with more than a dozen seen.

Two KING EIDERS (one male, one female) were with the Common Eider flock off
Waterford Beach and would have been scopeable from land around the large
rocks there.

The only "out-of-place" COMMON EIDERS we had were two at Goose Island in
Guilford. All others were at typical locations to the east.

The only other sea ducks were two single WHITE-WINGED SCOTERS. Loons were
nearly absent, with only one of each Red-throated and Common.

From: Aidan Kiley via CTBirds <ctbirds...>
Subject: [CT Birds] Mixed Fairfield County highlights (incl INLAND NELSON'S SPARROW)
James Leone and I checked out a handful of spots around the county hoping
for some good fall migrants. Here are some highlights:

Allen's Meadows: 2+ Vesper Sparrows first spotted by Joe Bear and Mike
Carpenter, 2 immature White-crowns, and 2 Bobolinks. Many Palm Warblers and
Yellow-rumps (a theme for the day).

Sherwood: Mixed migrants including a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher and mixed
numbers of sparrows. Many Eastern Phoebes.

Smith Richardson (Westport): Huge sparrow numbers (400+!!). Mainly Song,
White-throated and 100+ Chipping. 1 Lincoln's. Most sparrows I've ever seen
in one place in CT, or anywhere else probably. Couldn't find anything rare
in there, which was disappointing. 80+ Palm Warblers (almost exclusively
Yellow), 7 Hermit Thrushes, more phoebes and Yellow-rumps.

Fairfield Metro Conservation Area (Fairfield): Quieter than we expected in
this this spot but a few highlights: Vesper Sparrow on the path near the
train station entrance (trailhead is directly across from the station), odd
location Marsh Wren. This is a very underbirded spot that has great rarity
potential.

The best highlight of the day was an inland NELSON'S SPARROW at Samp Mortar
Reservoir this evening (small humble location in northern Fairfield). Looks
like a clear-cut Interior race bird. This spot is 5 miles inland and is
nowhere near any marsh grass or any remotely typical habitat for this
species. It was so bright it had me thinking LeConte's for a second. Was
the 12th and final sparrow of the day.

This is a pretty small spot but here are some directions if anyone's
interested: off of Tahmore Drive in Fairfield, take the left if you're
heading away from Black Rock Turnpike into the long driveway with the green
Lake Hills sign.

199-133 Tahmore Dr
199-133 Tahmore Dr, Fairfield, CT 06825
https://maps.app.goo.gl/1vYsBaz7tJk9ykSb6

Drive down to the end and park. You'll see kayaks. Walk right at the
kayaks along the lake. You'll right away hit a beach and a small sand beach
volleyball pit/court and a rectangular floating dock around you. On the
north (far) of the floating dock, there is a large bush that is right next
to the far corner of the dock. Bird was in the lower half of that bush.

Photos will be on eBird tomorrow.

Frank Guida reports a very good movement of hawks from Greenwich Audubon so far this morning with many Sharp Shins, Coopers and Turkey Vultures. He says more eyes would be greatly appreciated since birds are moving in all directions. Get out to a hawkwatch near you today!

Allen's Meadows, Wilton- lots of activity (unfortunately on soccer fields
too- RUSH tournament) highlighted by at least 3 continuing Vesper Sparrows-
a fellow birder said he had 2 separate groups of 3- so perhaps 6 in total.
Many Yellow-rumped and Palm warblers, Savannah and Song sparrows, 2
White-crowned with single Swamp and White-throated. Bobolink in foxtail
grass, and several RC Kinglets along blue-stem meadow trail.

Despite the weather, the orchard at trout brook valley preserve was pretty birdy this morning. There were a few nice surprises including Tennessee (2), Orange-crowned and Nashville Warblers plus a dozen BTB Warblers in two groups. Sparrows included Lincoln’s (4), Vesper, and White-crowned. Three Meadowlarks flew over and landed in the Aquarion (private) side of the orchard.

Heard Blue Jay's clamoring in the backyard and then a loud bang on my

a dazed yellow - rumped warbler on the deck.

Moved the bird into the greenhouse and set out some seed and water. Within

No public access unfortunately. First winter Connecticut Warbler in
decorative bushes near admin building. Bird came in to within 8 feet of me
when I pished. Migration is bumping into the current noreaster weather
front and birds are dropping in especially in coastal areas. Swamp and
Savannah Sparrows as well as Palm and Yellow-rumped Warblers are tucked
into odd places where they are finding localized shelter here around
Millstone Point. Worth poking around out there today.

On a private pond on George Washington Trail, Wallingford, I observed a
greater white-fronted goose this afternoon with a flock of approximately 60
Canada geese. The flock flew at 5:50 pm toward nearby Mackenzie
Reservoir. It might also be worthwhile to scan the geese flocks that
frequent the farm fields in the area. This is the fourth consecutive year
I've observed this species visiting this pond. Tom Baptist

Subject: [CT Birds] New London Sparrows
This afternoon at Bates Woods Park in New London, lots of sparrows at the large brush piles in the "back" field, as well as a good collection of Chippies behind the ball field. Nothing terribly uncommon but a nice showing overall. I recommend birders in the area to check out this spot-- the brush piles are twice the size as those at Harkness (seems like many city vehicles actively dump there) and can be quite productive.

Highlights:

Sparrows:

Chipping 25

White-throated 1

White-crowned 1 imm.

Slate-colored Junco 1

Savannah 5

Song 15


Swamp 4

Field 1

Other lingering passerines:

Eastern Wood-pewee 1

Scarlet Tanager 1

Indigo Bunting 1


Good birding,

Subject: [CT Birds] Rufous Hummingbird Canterbury CT 10/07/19
An immature male Rufous Hummingbird spent the day at a residence in
Canterbury, CT. The home owner has said visitors are welcome. The address
is 227 Water Street, Canterbury, but please contact the home owner (Sue)
first by email. The email address is suelavalee"at"charter.net. The
property is a hummingbird haven with several feeders and a multitude of
flowering plants. It would be difficult to see the bird from the road, so
entering the property is likely essential. Be aware a number of
Ruby-throateds are still around the property as well. Please do not block
the driveway and be respectful of the neighborhood as always.

Photos of the bird can be seen at https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S60442100

I highly recommend Bird Tape from the American Bird Conservancy (ABC) for decals to help prevent birds from hitting windows. Bird Tape is not costly compared to other window decals You can buy Bird Tape cut in three inches pieces or. like me, buy 3" x 50" uncut rolls and cut them your self. Bird Tape lasts for up to four years. Buying Bird Tape you also support the ABC.

I have had very good luck with these varieties of window decals. I have a
large kitchen picture window and living room window. I have seen birds
flying straight at the kitchen window, and at the last minute veer away
(presumably because they saw the decal reflections).

These go on the outside of windows....

These go on the inside of windows.

Good luck. It's disturbing to have a bird strike a window.

From: William Freedberg via CTBirds <ctbirds...>
Subject: Re: [CT Birds] birds hitting windows
The American Bird Conservancy has a list of guidelines for preventing
window strikes. UV stickers by themselves are not enough to prevent
window-strikes-- they must be placed no more than 2" apart to be
effective. Screens are the cheapest and most effective method, but
products like Acopian Bird-Savers are also great options (short of
installing dedicated bird-safe glass, which is one of the better
solutions but can be pricey).
The ABC's page is really worth a look:

Thanks to everyone who showed up for the CT Bird Atlas volunteer appreciation event at Hammonassset yesterday. It was a beautiful day and great to see so much enthusiasm for the project. 

We were graced with a nice bald eagle flyover as well as a northern harrier coursing back and forth over the marsh. 

Similar to Dave's report of a slow morning flight at Bluff Point, there were not huge numbers of migrants, but the woods behind the Meig's Point parking lot had a fair number of phoebes and yellow-rumped warblers, as well as both kinglets, a creeper, both palm warbler subspecies, black-throated greens and a parula.
Funnily enough, also similar to Dave, I had a greater yellowlegs fly over my house at first light this morning. A hard yard bird to get in Storrs.

Hi Kathy,
The NOS group exists largely via its listserv nosbirds, as it has been several years since we've been able to find people to serve as officers or organize formal meetings.  There are details on how to sign up for the list, and more details on the group and birding in the area, here:
https://sites.google.com/view/nosbird/
NOS members do still organize annual Christmas Bird Counts in Storrs and the Trailwoods areas, as well as a Storrs Summer Bird Count (details of how to get involved get posted on the listserv).  Anyone in the area is also encouraged to post their sightings to the list.  And, of course, anyone can help organize events such as bird walks or meetings - doing this primarily requires the time and willingness to set something up more than birding expertise per se.  People periodically suggest their plans to go birding when they are interested in having others join them.

Hope this helps,Chris

Very much surprised by lack of Neotropic migrants at Bluff Point in Groton
this morning. About 125 Warblers of 10 identified species. 4 Scarlet
Tanagers, 2 Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, the first Golden-crowned Kinglets of
the season, and a Lincoln's Sparrow were some of the limited highlights. A
good push of Tree Swallows and Blue Jays though. I also did a nocturnal
count in our yard in Preston from 04:45 till 06:10 and had a remarkable
lack of birds. Total tally of migrants was 2 Canada Geese, 1 Hermit Thrush,
1 White-throated Sparrow, and 1 Sparrow species. The best yardbird however
was a surprise heard Greater Yellowlegs, out of place crossing a hilltop
inland in the first light of dawn.

Later, at Stratford Marina, the American Avocet and Long-billed Dowitcher were calling back and forth on the dock. 37 Yellow-crowned Night-Herons flew out of the roost with 9 Great Egrets, and there were 78 Greater Yellowlegs on the docks and pilings with 8 Short-billed Doeitchers and a Kingfisher.

If you made it to the coast today you surely saw an amazing passage of hawks. Strong NW wind unleashed a torrent of birds through Lighthouse Point, capped off by a juv Swainson's Hawk. Strong winds forced birds low and clouds made it easy on the eyes to find distant birds.??A Cliff Swallow, Blue-headed Vireo, Rusty Blackbird and Hooded Warbler were notable landbirds at Lighthouse while late single Common Nighthawk and Ruby-throated Hummingbirds were noted at Branford's Ecology Park.The cold front cleared late but tonite's conditions shoume pave the way for good diurnal movements.Get out if you can!!Julian HoughNew HavenSent from my LG Phoenix 3, an AT&T 4G LTE smartphone

Subject: [CT Birds] Possible Vesper Sparrow at Silver Sands??
10/3/19-Milford, Silver Sands St Park, sparrow lanes, 9:30 am
Yesterday morning (10/2) while birding the sparrow lanes I spotted a sparrow with a complete, uniform, well-defined eye ring and streaking on the chest. My brief views of the foraging bird quickly eliminated Field Sparrow. It flew into a tree where I managed to get a poor, distant photo which can be seen in the following eBird checklist. For what it’s worth, the wedge-shaped tail, chest streaking and dark look around the head suggest a possible Vesper Sparrow.

Subject: [CT Birds] CT Birds List Serve Rules: super condensed version
Hello, again, CT Birders.



I see that the boldface didn't come through. The rules that I thought
deserved emphasis (although they are all important) were the following:



CTBirds is a mailing list dedicated to the discussion of wild birds and
birding in Connecticut.

This is a text-only list.

Civility and decorum are to be maintained in all postings to the CTBirds
list.

All postings should include the name and resident town of the poster.



Thank you for your adherence to these rules. I hope that all of you are
enjoying fall migration thus far. I hope to see some of you at this
Saturday's CT Bird Atlas appreciation event as well as the COA Sparrow
Workshop later this month. Both events are being held at Hammonasset State
Park in Madison.

Best regards and good birding,


Chris Loscalzo

Subject: [CT Birds] CT Birds List Serve Rules, Condensed Version
Hello, fellow CT Birders.



Last month, I posted the CT Birds List Serve rules in their entirety. In an
effort to make the list serve the best it can be for all CT birders, I am
posting the rules again in a condensed format. Please read them carefully
and make every effort to follow the rules at all times. I have put some of
the most important rules in boldface for emphasis. The CTBirds list-serve is
a wonderful resource and COA is proud and pleased to offer it to CT birders.
There are more than 1500 subscribers to the mailing list. Please keep this
in mind when posting to CTBirds: your posts should be of interest to a
majority of subscribers. Thank you for making the list-serve the exciting
and interesting forum it is. Our shared observations and insights make
birding in CT a great experience for all.



CTBIRDS POSTING RULES REVISED 11/2014

1.CTBirds is a mailing list dedicated to the discussion of wild birds and
birding in Connecticut. It is intended to be a forum for reporting bird
sightings, listing bird walks by local clubs and organizations, listing
speakers on birding topics appearing in the state, posting legislative
alerts on bird habitats and conservation, facilitating discussion on bird
behavior and identification, sharing requests for Citizen Science volunteers
related to birds, and discussing topics of general interest that relate to
Connecticut birders.

2.The most efficient way to communicate news about rare birds in Connecticut
is to post to the CTBirds list in a timely fashion.

3.The need for an ethical approach to birds and birding extends beyond the
rules of the list and members are encouraged to follow the American Birding
Association's Principles of Birding Ethics, available at
http://www.aba.org/about/ethics.html.

4.This is a text-only list. File attachments and photographs are not
permitted.

5.Exact locations of day-roosting owls are not be posted.

6.Civility and decorum are to be maintained in all postings to the CTBirds
list. No personal attacks, vulgar language, or comments of a racial,
religious, or sexual nature are allowed. Complaints about the list or list
members should be sent to the Moderator and not discussed on the list.

7.Directions to nests of any birds in the state should not be posted to
protect our breeding birds.

8.All postings should include the date of a sighting, the town and location
of the sighting, the time if it is a rarity, and the name and resident town
of the poster. Do not use abbreviations and codes. Posts should be brief and
informative.

9. Commercial advertising of any kind is prohibited. Non-profit
organizations may post their meetings, field trips, and other events once
per month.

10. Copies of eBird lists should not be posted to CTBirds, rather a link to
the eBird list may be posted.



Also: please do not reply directly to the list serve. Your response then
attaches to the previous message and makes for a long, redundant post.



Thanks and good birding!



Chris Loscalzo

COA President

Woodbridge

From: David Provencher via CTBirds <ctbirds...>
Subject: [CT Birds] Avian migrants as individuals
We're all familiar with the idea of waves of migrant birds winging their
way southward in the Fall. Cold fronts followed by cool stable air provide
optimum conditions for these mass movements. Bird radar can come alive on
under these conditions. Last night here the Northeast was not one such
night. The winds were wrong. Bird radar was oh so dark. However, just like
people, not all birds follow the masses. Even under poor migration
conditions some individuals will buck the crowd and go anyway. I remember
one late August day going to Bluff Point and being treated to... no
migrants. As I was walking back to my truck I caught sight of movement in a
lone cedar. I pished and out popped an adult Mourning Warbler. It was the
only migrant I found that day. This morning when I got up at 5am I checked
the radar for the night and saw deadness. Nothing had moved in our region
apparently. When I walked outside after a bit and a pot of coffee, I
immediately heard the first of the season White-throated Sparrow in the
yard. Dozens more will follow and will be vacuuming up seed at our feeding
station later on, but this little one winged its way to Preston while most
of its fellow White-throateds said "not tonight." I very much appreciate
not all people think the same, and thankfully that's true for birds as
well. If they did we'd never get vagrants. Vive la difference!

Subject: [CT Birds] Lighthouse Point hawk watch today
Dave Provencher's comments on the negative effects of east winds at Bluff
Point were in play here as well. Sky conditions and wind velocity were
promising, but the northeasterly component, swinging more toward the E and
SE as the morning progressed, left us well short of Sunday's 300 raptors.
with c 80 diurnal raptors counted.

Overhead landbirds were sparse beyond Blue Jays, Cedar Waxwings and Tree
Swallows. There was an early flyover Dickcissel and a few American Pipits.
The best warbler around the hawk watch was a Wilson's (Paul Desjardins).

Subject: [CT Birds] Bluff Point Groton Hot corner 9/30/19
Once again highlighting how important nocturnal wind direction is for
birding songbird migration in southeast Connecticut, a night that saw
fairly heavy migration resulted in mediocre warbler movement at Bluff Point
in Groton due to the easterly component in the wind direction. We tallied
approximately 250 Warblers of 14 species this morning. Best bird was a
possible Connecticut Warbler seen not quite well enough by Russ Smiley.
Still heavily Northern Parula, we had our first sign of things to come with
double digit Yellow-rumpeds. A handful of White-throated Sparrows also
presaged the coming horde.

Subject: [CT Birds] Lighthouse Point Park - Merlin Show
301 total today with a large number of unidentified.  Blue skies and some at high altitudes made some IDs problematic.  Even at 4:45 pm, some of the Merlins were still high up, squabbling with one another.  Those that clearly went E to W included 13 Eagles, 10 Harriers, 93 Sharp-shinned, 30 Coops, 54 Kestrels, 22 Merlin and 6 Peregrines.  
Refer to HMANA's HawkCount and eBird for details.  
Related topic (HMANA counts dragonflies) the Green Darner flight was remarkable.  Several checks throughout the day showed dragonflies (95% Green Darners) moving NW at a rate of over 100 A MINUTE.  Yesterday, there were SIX Green Darners among a few hundred Black Saddlebags.  Today, the number was perhaps in the tens of thousands for the day.  Merlins and Kestrels were feasting.

observation of a number of interesting species, including a brightly
plumaged Philadelphia Vireo, two Yellow-billed Cuckoos, a Brown Thrasher,
White-crowned and Lincoln's Sparrows, and two female Scarlet Tanagers. The
vireo was in the shrubby habitat just west of the skating rink.

Tomorrow morning, Sunday, 9/29/19, I will be leading a bird walk at Massaro
Farm in Woodbridge (on Ford Rd, off of Ansonia Road), beginning at 9 am. It
is free and open to the public. It will be oriented towards beginning
birders, but birders of all levels are welcome to attend. If you come, wear
footwear that you won't mind getting wet and muddy.

COA President

Just a quick update - moments after I sent the last message, the tern flew off unseen. Point is, at least one of them is still around. Following Tina’s directions from yesterday may well be the best strategy. It seems as though about half the reports and the last day or so have come from the beach south of the Mill Pond.

One of the subject birds is currently sitting on a sandbar at the Old Millbeach. I am viewing from the west side of the beach. Behind me there is a peach colored house with some fairly ornate clay tiles on the roof and a wooden gate. On the beach side of Hillspoint Road there is a small sandy passageway between two stonewalls that leads down to the water. I am at this location currently. The bird was not there about 15 minutes ago when I checked last.

Subject: [CT Birds] White-crowned Sparrow - so juvenile



Have you ever seen a juvenile White-crowned Sparrow? I haven't. How is that
possible, you might ask me. You're sure I've seen plenty of them. They're
so drab compared to the adults, which have the high-contrast
black-and-white head markings. The answer lies in the definition of the
term juvenile and in its misuse.

I've never seen a juvenile White-crowned Sparrow because I've never lived
in the areas where they breed and I've never visited those areas in
mid-to-late summer. That's why most of you have never seen one either,
despite what you might think.

The answer can be found (among other places) in the very concise delivery
of information provided by the ever-reliable and artistically talented
David Sibley. Turn to his page on White-crowned Sparrows, which is packed
with illustrations and information on seasonal and geographic variation. Up
in the left hand corner, easily overlooked among paintings of familiar
looking White-crowneds, is a single heavily streaked bird that looks
nothing like any of the other illustrations. It's labeled juvenile and
below it is this - (June-Aug). Those bits of info, coupled with the range
maps on the page, explain it all. The species nests far north and west of
us, and it only looks like that streaky image during a roughly 3-month
period before they ever make it to CT. In fact our first White-crowneds of
the fall just showed up in the past week or so, and they look nothing like
the bird David labels juvenile.

Juvenile is a such a familiar word in human contexts that it's easy for us
to use it loosely. But in ornithological context it's a technical term.
Here's the definition provided by Tony Leukering, author of a salient
article titled Non-adult Plumages: Terminology Matters - A juvenile bird
is one that is wearing its first non-downy plumage, *and it is used for
birds in that plumage **only*.

Juvenile plumages can look very different from those shown at other ages
(think American Robin), and they're usually worn quite briefly before
they're molted and the bird's appearance changes. Such is the case with
White-crowned Sparrow, all explained and illustrated (but often overlooked)
in Sibley. His (June-Aug) explains why I've never seen one. By the time
White-crowned Sparrows reach us in fall, they've molted into what David
illustrates as first-winter plumage. The streaking is gone and along with
it the term juvenile.

Things can get a lot more complicated in dealing with birds during the
period after juvenile and leading up to adult, and I'm certainly not going
there in this already-too-long post. But you might want to check with
Sibley again by reading his introductory section on Molt and Plumages (page
22 in my version of the Big Sibley).

Greg Hanisek

Waterbury

P.S. As many of you know I'm a reviewer for eBird. I deal with eBird issues
individually with users but I would just note that there are a lot of
White-crowned Sparrow photos in eBird that are incorrectly labeled
juvenile. You might want to check yours. EBird offers the more generic
alternative immature for young birds that aren't actually juveniles.

Subject: [CT Birds] Bluff Point flight very slow 9/27/19
We were treated to a very slow flight at Bluff Point in Groton this
morning. Roughly 50 warblers were encountered and 8 species identified (I
think it was 8, I haven't tallied in eBird yet). Best birds were a
Bay-breasted Warbler seen briefly, and FOY Ruby-crowned Kinglet and FOY
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. We still have not seen an uptick in Blackpoll
Warblers yet.

Speaking of Warblers at Bluff, there are 4 species that dominate the
numbers we see passing through. First come many American Redstarts
outnumbering all other species combined in late August and early September.
Secondly the Northern Parulas, typically in mid September, and they rival
or exceed Redstarts. Thirdly come big numbers of Blackpolls, as Redstarts
really fall off in numbers and Parula numbers decrease. This is usually
around the 3rd week of September into fourth week. Lastly come the
Yellow-rumpeds, which end up at times in massive numbers sometimes
exceeding 5 figures. The Yellow-rumpeds coincide with big numbers of
White-throated Sparrows, as the songbird migration winds down for us. This
happens around the second week of October. All times are approximate year
to year, and this year migration is running latish. So still many birds to
come...

Subject: Re: [CT Birds] carolina wrens
Hi Kathy,

Carolina Wrens are non-migratory, meaning they do not at all leave our
area.  They might move between seasons, i.e., occupy a different
territory during breeding and non-breeding season, but they will be here
all year.  If you look up a bird guide, this will be indicated by a
color indicating their year-round presence in the distribution map.

This is in contrast to the other three wren species we find regularly in
our state:  House and Marsh Wren are here only during the breeding
season, while Winter Wrens visit us during winter. Except if you live in
the North West of CT, where Winter Wrens breed.

Subject: Re: [CT Birds] White-crowned Sparrow - so juvenile
Thank you for that important note, Greg. To sum it up in one sentence,
juvenile refers to a plumage, not an age. It is NOT synonymous with the
term "young bird" or the word immature.

More about eBird- if you're an eBird user and have uploaded photos, go back
and spend a few minutes looking at your photos- you may have missed ID
errors, age/sex mix-ups, or something else. It's easy to sort through eBird
Media to see your own photos only.

If you're logged in, go to explore photos, or use this link:

https://ebird.org/media/catalog

Click "refine" on the right hand side, and click "My Media". Then you'll
see your photos. Click "refine" again, and you can sort your photos by all
kinds of categories. You can click "more filters" which will bring you the
option to sort by age/sex. Check these out.

If you have any eBird related questions, about IDs, hotspots, proper use,
or anything else, please reach out to Greg or myself.

Subject: [CT Birds] White-crowned Sparrow - so juvenile
Have you ever seen a juvenile White-crowned Sparrow? I haven't. How is that
possible, you might ask me. You're sure I've seen plenty of them. They're
so drab compared to the adults, which have the high-contrast
black-and-white head markings. The answer lies in the definition of the
term juvenile – and in its misuse.

I've never seen a juvenile White-crowned Sparrow because I've never lived
in the areas where they breed and I've never visited those areas in
mid-to-late summer. That's why most of you have never seen one either,
despite what you might think.

The answer can be found (among other places) in the very concise delivery
of information provided by the ever-reliable and artistically talented
David Sibley. Turn to his page on White-crowned Sparrows, which is packed
with illustrations and information on seasonal and geographic variation. Up
in the left hand corner, easily overlooked among paintings of familiar
looking White-crowneds, is a single heavily streaked bird that looks
nothing like any of the other illustrations. It's labeled “juvenile” and
below it is this - (June-Aug). Those bits of info, coupled with the range
maps on the page, explain it all. The species nests far north and west of
us, and it only looks like that streaky image during a roughly 3-month
period before they ever make it to CT. In fact our first White-crowneds of
the fall just showed up in the past week or so, and they look nothing like
the bird David labels “juvenile.”

Juvenile is a such a familiar word in human contexts that it's easy for us
to use it loosely. But in ornithological context it's a technical term.
Here's the definition provided by Tony Leukering, author of a salient
article titled Non-adult Plumages: Terminology Matters - “A juvenile bird
is one that is wearing its first non-downy plumage, *and it is used for
birds in that plumage **only*.”

Juvenile plumages can look very different from those shown at other ages
(think American Robin), and they're usually worn quite briefly before
they're molted and the bird's appearance changes. Such is the case with
White-crowned Sparrow, all explained and illustrated (but often overlooked)
in Sibley. His (June-Aug) explains why I've never seen one. By the time
White-crowned Sparrows reach us in fall, they've molted into what David
illustrates as first-winter plumage. The streaking is gone – and along with
it the term juvenile.

Things can get a lot more complicated in dealing with birds during the
period after juvenile and leading up to adult, and I'm certainly not going
there in this already-too-long post. But you might want to check with
Sibley again by reading his introductory section on Molt and Plumages (page
22 in my version of the Big Sibley).

Greg Hanisek

Waterbury

P.S. As many of you know I'm a reviewer for eBird. I deal with eBird issues
individually with users but I would just note that there are a lot of
White-crowned Sparrow photos in eBird that are incorrectly labeled
“juvenile.” You might want to check yours. EBird offers the more generic
alternative “immature” for young birds that aren't actually juveniles.

Great, but quick circuit the morning.

Had CT Warbler briefly, but with good looks, confirmed again this afternoon by coworkers who saw it fly over the trail at pond end of the park.

Clay-colored continues. Lincoln’s, Field, and Savannah Sparrows in the gardens.

Tennessee Warbler, Chestnut-sided Warbler, Northern Parula, Palm Warbler, and Black-throated Blue Warbler.

One Dickcissle and one Yellow-billed Cuckoo.

Red-shouldered and Coops disturbed all of the birds. Lots of Jays causing a fuss as well.

Also, many offleash dogs. Something I’m not used to at this spot.

Please forgive me for straying from bird commentary but Carolyn Cimino's notes regarding great numbers of butterflies at Harkness prompts me to mention a similar situation in Wallingford. I have never seen so many butterflies of different varieties during my 35 years in central Connecticut. My Butterfly Bushes and garden flowers have been loaded. It makes me wish I had spent more time learning their identification. What a spectacular sight.

9/25 Milford, Connecticut Audubon Coastal Center 9:45am-1PM, high tide
receding, sunny, 65-74F.
Very busy at the coastal center today with classes and visitors. Many
monarch butterflies in the area.
I did a brief walk on the Long Island sound side where many cormorants
were sitting on a sand bar, some with wings outstretched. For a few
minutes, I watched an osprey sitting on a log with a fish in its talons and
a gull sitting opposite it, just staring at the fish. After a few minutes,
I left, but I wonder who retained ownership of the fish.
On the marsh: 5 Great Egrets, 1 Snowy Egret, 1 Yellow crowned night heron
(juvenile), 2 D.C. cormorants on a mud flat, 12 Canada Geese flew over in
a perfect V formation, many gulls, 1 Great Black backed gull.
On the grounds: 3 Catbirds, 5 House finches, 1 Mockingbird, 1 Carolina
wren, 4 American Crows, 2 Black & white warblers, 2 Blue Jays, 1 Common
Yellowthroat, 1 Song sparrow.
Our pollinator garden was attracting many butterflies-monarchs, Spicebush
swallow tails, some kinds of sulphurs- just beautiful.

Also an invasion of Monarchs at Harkness SP in Waterford. I have never seen so many. Some goldenrod plants had 10 or so on each plant. Wonderful to see! Several other species of butterflies too.

There were small numbers of four sparrow species: Lincoln, Field, Swamp, and
Song.

Only warbler that I saw or heard was Common Yellowthroat but there were many.

Several raptors including Merlin and Northern Harrier.

9/25/19 Hammonasset S.P., Madison - 9:00 - 10:00,  waves of migrants concentrated in a relatively few species.  The flycatchers were predominant, including Phoebes, Empidonax, Pewee, Great-Crested, and one Olive-sided.  There were also numerous Black and White Warblers, the most we've seen in a small area, along with a number of Magnolias, and Common Yellow-throat.  The wrens were active as well.  On  top of all that was the largest number of Monarchs we've seen all year.  Worth a walk at Willard's.

I’ve been having several warbler species this pass through my yard this Fall. It’s been very exciting!!

This morning I had a chestnut sided warbler, black throated green warblers, and American redstarts including a male still in breeding plumage. I also had a red eyed vireo and black and white warbler off my deck where I see most of these birds.

Yesterday I saw a black throated blue and a female indigo bunting near my home.

Recently I also had an ovenbird and northern parula in my yard and saw a magnolia warbler very close to my home.

It’s been such fun to see these gorgeous birds without having to go anywhere!

If you can get out this morning, you really should.  I had an excellent morning flight going on in my yard, but had to leave for work as it was really getting going.  I had over 200 warblers plus other migrants in 25 minutes.  Geographically, my yard is positioned to get morning flight, but I have no "hot corner" so no good place to see everything.  Almost all warblers/passerines not IDed or probably just not seen at all.

I've seen a female several times since and as late as yesterday afternoon

Subject: [CT Birds] Hummingbirds and migration
Hey all, Hummingbirds are still migrating through in decent numbers.
Although they might not always stop long enough for you to see them, or
have extended visits to the feeders like in the summer months, you can
expect them for a few more weeks. However, this time of year is the perfect
opportunity to photograph or document Birds you see in the yard as we could
possibly be getting other species as vagrants such as (but not limited to)
Rufous Hummingbird. You can continue to put out feeders with fresh nectar
for as long as you can before an extended freeze. I would recommend
bringing in your feeders when we are expecting below freezing temperatures
during the night to prevent damage. Keep an eye on those feeders and
Garden’s and remember, it might not be a Ruby-throated! Try and photo
these guys whenever you can.

Good birding and happy fall,

I have not seen this feeding behavior before. The Connecticut River was shallow here so maybe that accounts for their behavior.

And now a message from your friendly but unhappy moderator.

Would everyone just relax?
At this moment I haven't even considered if what Dana wrote rises to the level of objectionable on the list.  There is NO question in my mind that the REACTION IS OBJECTIONABLE. If you have a problem with a post, tell the moderator (me) and I can look into it.  And be patient, please?  There are times I actually don't read my email (or CTBirds posts) for hours at a stretch.
In the meanwhile, I consider the subject CLOSED.  Please do not continue to post on this.  You can be sure I will bring this up with the officers and board of the COA and seek their assistance before taking any action.
Showing some tolerance and restraint wouldn't be a bad thing.

Good birding!

If it isn’t preaching it’s at least sharing of instructional messaging that is far off topic and apparently objectionable to some, which seems the very definition of content that doesn’t belong here. This has nothing to do with objecting to a person’s beliefs, which I think is apparent. We can end these conversations quickly staying on topic to begin with.

Subject: [CT Birds] Bluff Point
200-300 warblers of at least 11 species at the hot corner. Flight was slow at the corner itself and most birds were seen along the trails, giving nice views.

Parulas were most common but also lots of redstarts and a good showing of magnolias, black-throated greens, black-and-white etc. Also 2 Tennessee, (only) 2 blackpoll, and Dave had a Cape May. Other highlights were 2 Philadelphia vireos. Still seemed like a fairly early fall mix of species,so presumably lots more to come.
