Yesterday, before I had to work at the Earthplace Green Fair most of the day, I swung by Longshore with my dad to see if I could see the reported Tricolered Heron there, a bird I had only seen once before. We didn’t have to search long, and soon were looking at a beautiful Tricolered Heron. This is an uncommon bird to CT, though it normally comes north in the summer months to about Northern New Jersey.
We kept driving around the coastal areas of westport, picking up a couple Year Shorebirds, and then moved on to Earthplace, where we birded a bit before I had to get to work.
There were NO warblers in the woods, which was pretty weird, but we did find a couple Scarlet Tanagers, Broad-winged Hawks, Great-crested Flycatchers, and a Catbird.
