Between the squalls this afternoon a hawk sailed through the yard followed 
by several crows and Blackbirds in persuit. on the tail end flew in a 
Kestrel. She perched in highest tiny branches of a tree which was no small feat 
in 

the 40 mph gusty winds.

She hung out there for 5 mins offering great looks.

We stopped at Saltwater Farms Winery in Stonington to see if the Osprey was 
sitting in the 4-foot-high nest from last year, and it was there. An Osprey was 
also on its nest on Route 1 across from Elm Street, as were 3 Snowy Egrets.

Hi everyone,
Recently I asked about ecology oppratunities and I would like to thank those 
who answered. Now I plan on setting aside a piece of my yard for natural 
habitat with birdfeeders and a homemade pond. Does anyone now how I could work 
my love for ecology or even biology into this idea. Thanks.

From: Larry Bausher <LPBausher AT comcast.net>
Date: Tue, 15 Apr 2014 15:59:58 -0400
Folks,

Here is the New Haven Bird Club’s schedule of activities during May:

Annual Banquet:

Thursday, May 8.  Annual Banquet, Amarante's Restaurant, 62 Cove St,  
New Haven.  Open to the public.  Guest Speaker, Richard Crossley –  
Internationally acclaimed birder and entertaining speaker will give  
his view of birding and the outdoors with the presentation “Past,  
Present, and Future”.  Social hour at 6 PM, dinner at 7 PM.   
Reservation in advance with payment and choice of entrée (Beef,  
Chicken, or Vegetarian) is required.  No tickets are sold at the  
door.  Members, $35.00, non-members, $40.00, cash bar.   For  
reservation form: www.newhavenbirdclub.org or call 203-230-1697.  
Bring cash to participate in raffle.


Field Trips:

East Rock Park, New Haven.  Saturday, May 3, 8:00 am. Free and open  
to the public.  Join Ranger Dan Barvir at this premier site for  
viewing warblers and a great variety of other spring migrants. We’ll  
meet at the Rice Field (baseball field) end of East Rock Park. Leader- 
Ranger Dan Barvir: 203.946.6086.  East Rock Park is part of the New  
Haven Parks Department.

East Rock Park Garlic Mustard Pull, New Haven.  Saturday, May 3,  
following the bird walk with Ranger Dan.  Free and open to the  
public.  Dan’s bird walk will end around 11:30, and after a lunch  
break, we will get to work pulling garlic mustard in a heavily  
infested area of the park. This invasive plant is a pernicious,  
prolific pest that can overrun forested areas, squeeze out native  
spring flowers, kill butterfly caterpillars, and alter the habitat of  
our native birds. The rampant growth can be daunting, but with many  
hands and an organized approach, we can help reclaim the park. Long  
pants and sleeves are recommended. Bring work gloves if you have  
them. After the bird walk, meet at the Eli Whitney Museum. Contact:  
Craig Repasz: 203-230-1697 or crepasz AT hotmail.com.  East Rock Park is  
part of the New Haven Parks Department.

Bird Walk for Families at East Rock Park, New Haven.  Saturday, May  
3, 2014, 9:00 am. Free and open to the public. On this walk by the  
park's Mill River, children, accompanied by adults, will search for  
warblers and other spring migrants. Other interested adults are also  
welcome to join the walk in this famous spring birding site.  Meet at  
the Eli Whitney Museum parking lot.  Bring binoculars and a field  
guide if you have them.  Leader: Florence McBride: 203 -288-6777 or  
j.mcbride AT yale.edu. East Rock Park is part of the New Haven Parks  
Department.

Bent of the River Wildlife Sanctuary, Southbury.  Sunday, May 4, 7:30  
am. Free and open to the public.  Explore a prime birding location  
along the Pomperaug River in Southbury where more than 100 species of  
birds have been observed in a single day.  This beautiful and highly  
diverse, 650-acre habitat is owned and maintained by the National  
Audubon Society.  Take Exit 14 off Rte.84. Go north on Rte. 172 ,  
then turn left on East Flat Hill Road, at intersection with church.   
Continue to sanctuary entrance on left.  The trip involves moderately  
strenuous hiking.  Leader-Roy Harvey: 203.888.5757, rmharvey AT snet.net.

First Wednesday Walk: East Rock Park, New Haven.  Wednesday, May 7,  
7:30 am. Free and open to the public. Join us for a walk in one of  
the best places in the state to see warblers and other spring  
migrants.  It is not unusual to see 15-20 species of warblers in this  
park on any given day in early May.  Rarities such as Prothonotary,  
Kentucky, and Cape May Warbler are possible.  Meet at the Eli Whitney  
Museum parking lot near the covered bridge.  Leaders—Renee Baade,  
Frank Mantlik, and John Oshlick.  Contact person—Tina Green: 203  
247-2660, tina AT renaissancestudios.com.  East Rock Park is part of the

Big Day Marathon.  Saturday, May 10, 6:00 AM. Free and open to the  
public. Take part in all or part of this event.  We'll focus on New  
Haven area hotspots, seeking 100-130 species.  We start at East Rock  
and search several other local migrant traps, as well as the coast  
from Lordship to Hammonasset.  Meet at the Eli Whitney Museum parking  
lot at 6:00 or 7:30 am.  Leader: John Oshlick: 203-891-5344 or  
john.oshlic AT yahoo.com.

Naugatuck State Forest, Naugatuck.  Sunday, May 11, 7:00 am. Free and  
open to the public. Join us at the peak of spring migration on this  
moderately strenuous and long hike in a fine birding location. We’ll  
search for migrants and residents. The mixed hardwood forest is a  
good location for Hooded and Worm-eating Warblers and many other  
species.  Last year on this trip we saw 15 warbler species and heard  
a hooting Barred Owl and a singing Winter Wren. Meet at commuter lot  
at Exit 25 off Rte 8, Naugatuck.  Leader: Chris Loscalzo:  
203-389-6508 or closcalz AT optonline.net

Hooded and Worm-eating Warblers and many other species.  There are  
large ponds where you can find Wood Ducks, herons, flycatchers and  
other species.  Nearby Hartman’s Park is known for its breeding  
population of Cerulean Warblers.  Meet at at 6:30 at commuter lot at  
Exit 55 off I-95 in Branford or the Keeny Road entrance to Nehantic  
SF on Rte. 156, Lyme at 7:00 am.  Leader: Paul Wolter:   
pwolter6 AT earthlink.net or 860 681-5548.

Barn Island Wildlife Management Area, Stonington.  Sunday, May 18,  
7:00 am. Free and open to the public. This will be our tenth annual  
trip to  this excellent  birding spot.  We'll meet at the commuter  
lot at Exit 55 of I-95 and carpool to Barn Island which consists of   
large expanses of salt marsh, tidal  pools,  wetlands, woodlands, and  
open  fields. We should see wading birds, shorebirds, and area  
residents such as Saltmarsh Sparrow,  Marsh  Wren,  White-eyed  
Vireo,  American Redstart, Willow Flycatcher, Bobolink, and many  
other species.  Leader—Chris Loscalzo: 203 389-6508,

It seems that at least one of the Little Blue Herons that has been seen at 
Hammonasset is actually one of the hybrids that has been seen there in recent 
years, not a pure Little Blue Heron. Kudos to Dan Rottino's keen eye noticing 
the white under the wings and white leggings. ? You can even see a hint of a 
white necktie at certain angles. I have not heard back definitively from Mark 
S. on the subject, but Greg indicated agreement.

 From Judy Richardson
Monday, April 14
I saw my first Kestrel yesterday along the Dirt road in Easton off Rockhouse 
Rd. It was probably a female as I couldn't see any blue in the wings. It was 
sitting It was in the swamp on an old snag of a trunk, alert for dragonflies. 



 From The Rafford's

Snowy owl on pavilion roof across the street from the Swan pond.  8:00 AM


 From SH Johnston:
04/13/2014 -- Downtown Hartford, alighting on Lincoln Financial building around 
5:30 pm - 1 NORTHERN RAVEN.  Unmistakable - large size and wedge tail. When I 
first saw it in silhouette in flight against the sun, I thought it was one of 
the local red-tails due to its size and wingspan, but then I saw it in good 
light and saw the tail as it alit on the building - clearly a raven. 

04/13/2014 -- Downtown New Britain, by the curb, corner of Main and Chestnut 
Streets, the head of an AMERICAN WOODCOCK. Photos and commentary here: 
http://quodlibet-sarah.blogspot.com/2014/04/whats-that-bird-bat.html - I'd be 
interested in peoples' opinions as to how this piece of a Woodcock ended up on 
a city street. 

Also of interest: UConn ornithologist and conservation biologist Chris Elphick 
is quoted in this encouraging article in the New York Times, about programs to 
create temporary seasonal shorebird habitat:

1Migrating  Northern Flicker at Smith-Neck Road in Old Lyme.
14 Ospreys - equal amount of females and males with the males hunting.

It was around 2 p.m. at the CT River in Old Lyme and saw about 14 Ospreys
in their nests and the Males were hunting. Got a picture of one of them
with a fish in his talons.

The Northern Flicker just flew over to a tree right near me and I just
snapped pictures as I wasn't sure what it was and I was happily surprised
when I figured it out.

While driving across the Housatonic river this morning, I saw a Northern
Gannet close to road level on the Moses Wheeler Bridge.  I tried to
convince myself it was a strange gull/ cormorant hybrid but it didn't
work.  ;-)  Maybe this rain is doing some funky things along the coast.

 Today's Snowy Owl at Hammonasset put on an amazing show flying and landing on 
various perches around the East Beach parking lot. It was fun seeing the Snowy 
with three Glossy Ibis flying in the background. Snowy Owl & Glossy Ibis - a 
good combination view that I'm sure birders don't see too often. Barn Swallow & 
Snowy Owl was another good combo view.

Hi All,

There were two snowy owls in the Wheeler Marsh behind the Coastal Center late 
this afternoon. Julian Hough and I saw them from the observation tower on the 
building. Our Purple Martins are back on the colony, and our Osprey laid their 
first egg last night during the Return of the Osprey Party Fundraiser at the 
Coastal Center. We took it as a great omen, and it really was a great time with 
amazing music, food and people; in fact, there were record numbers attending. 
Thanks to all who shared the evening with us, and to the many volunteers and 
board members who helped to make it possible.. I can't wait until next year! 


Mondo pond was busy in the morning with Pine, Yellow-rumped, and Palm Warblers 
singing all around the west pond, a few ruby-crowned kinglets, and assorted 
other migrants... 


Take care..

Frank

I had 2 new arrivals at A. W. this morning (Sunday):

  Swamp Sparrow
  Pine Warbler

Yellow-rumped Warblers showed up 3 days ago (Thursday) and Palm Warblers
showed up a couple days ago (Friday).

There has been an Eastern Phoebe hanging around the road bridge over the
brook from Batterson that leads into the upper "pond". Hopefully we'll have
a nesting pair using the bridge as we have in previous years.
