‘Tis the Season for CBCs!

Well….it’s that time of year again. Time for the Fairfield Shore crew of Captain Charlie Barnard, Scott Kruitbosch, Dave Zawisha, James Purcell and myself to get back together and make some noise during the 2011 Westport CBC. And this year’s Fairfield Shore count is shaping up to be a good one. Harlequin Duck at the reef, large numbers of Razorbills along the coast, Snow Goose, Ash Creek’s awesome reputation for waterfowl, Pine Creek’s unmatched winter diversity (including Winter Wren) and a great team of birders are sure to make this year’s Fairfield Shore count an overwhelming success.

In short, I’m pumped. Doing a CBC on your own turf is pretty awesome and the Westport CBC represents one of my favorite counts. I’ll be out scouting for the majority of the day tomorrow before getting a good rest for Sunday’s count. This is a plea to anyone birding the Fairfield/Westport/Easton area to report your interesting sightings to CTBirds. Every piece of vital information matters.
