June Birds

Thursday, June 13th, 2019

June 13, 2019 – Connecticut is filled with birds this month, many of them raising families (or being raised), many resting and feeding. Here’s a list of eight chosen at random from among our summer Bird Finder entries over the past five years.

The Wood Warblers

Friday, April 26th, 2019

April 26, 2019 – The next few weeks will be warbler weeks in Connecticut. True, vireos and thrushes and sandpipers and lots of others birds will be arriving too, but it seems almost beyond debate that warbler migration excites the spring birder more than those others.

April Birds

Friday, April 19th, 2019

April 19, 2019 – There are so many birds to find in April, we thought we’d post a quick compilation of a handful to be alert for over the next few days.

Blue-winged Teal

Wednesday, March 13th, 2019

March 13, 2019 – A male Blue-winged Teal is truly unmistakable. Its dark blue-gray face and black bill stand in strong contrast with the large white crescent that extends vertically between the bird’s bill and eye. That huge white slash on the front if its otherwise dark face can be seen from a great distance.

Wintering Golden Eagles in Connecticut

Wednesday, February 20th, 2019

February 20, 2019 – Recently I’ve spent a few hours scanning ridge lines, farm lands, and waterways between Salisbury and Kent for Golden Eagles. I had my first bird on Thursday, February 14, in Kent, some 10 miles as the crow flies north of where Stefan Martin had two Goldens a couple days before (at Deer Pond Farm, in Sherman).

Mew Gull

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

January 16, 2019
Where and When To Find It: Cove Island Park, Stamford. Right now. There’s no guarantee we’ll see another. Alternatively, plan on a very long plane ride.

Lincoln’s Sparrow

Friday, September 28th, 2018

September 28, 2018 – No, sparrows are not all just “little brown jobs”! The intricate beauty of this snazzy sparrow will spice up your autumn birding.

Little Egret, by land or by sea

Saturday, August 11th, 2018

August 11, 2018 – Nick Bonomo spent a fair amount of time in recent days looking for a Little Egret to make its way into Connecticut. A regular Bird Finder contributor, Nick graciously let us report the account he wrote for his blog.

Blue-winged Warbler

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

June 28, 2018. Blue-winged Warblers prove that you don’t have to stop looking at vibrant warblers just because spring migration is over!

Rough-legged Hawk

Friday, January 12th, 2018

January 12, 2018. They are most easily found along the coast at places such as Connecticut Audubon’s Coastal Center at Milford Point and Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison, where birders found a Rough-legged on Monday and Tuesday. Another was seen at Long Beach in Stratford on Tuesday.
