Dick English Fieldtrip report

We had a wonderful fieldtrip yesterday (Sat 4/8/17). It was the annual Richard English Memorial Fieldtrip to Lighthouse Point Park, The Richard English Bird Sanctuary at the Deer Lake Scout Camp in Killingworth and Hammonasset Beach State Park. We had lovely weather although quite windy in the morning.

Some of the highlights were:

3 – Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers (LHPP)

1 – Little Blue Heron (LHPP!)

1 – Wilson’s Snipe posing for pictures (Hammo)

100+ Brants

3 – Glossy Ibis

3 – Eastern Phoebes

1 – Raven

1 – Eastern Bluebird

2 – Golden Crowned Kinglets

I want to thank very much Laurie Reynolds for acting as scribe and posting her lists and pictures from all 3 sites on e-bird.
