Trip Report – Fargeorge, New Haven – 10/31/2015

There were 11 of us that braved the Beautiful Fall Weather and went on the joint trip with the New Haven Land Trust and our Bird Club. The big features were lots and lots of Cedar Waxwings and Loads of Robins plus a roosted up American Bald Eagle. The tide was dead low so Hemingway Creek was empty, so no ducks. It was, however, a really fun trip with a great time had by all.
