6/26 – Station 43 and Cabela’s

Today the Connecticut Young Birder’s Club journeyed to northern Connecticut for a fun morning of birding with people from the Hartford Audubon society.

The highlights included: 2 Grasshopper Sparrow, 1 Eastern Meadowlark, 3 Bobolinks, 1 Cliff Swallow, 1-2 Upland Sandpiper and many Savannah Sparrows (all at Rentschler Field) plus Swamp Sparrows, Marsh Wrens, Wood Ducks and a single Bank Swallow at Station 43, both stops on my amazing birding day last weekend. A number of Purple Martins at Milford Point were the one and only highlight of some midday driving through Milford and Stratford.
