Trip Report on Hammonasset - January 9, 2016

1/9/16 Hammonasset Beach SP, Madison, CT.

The first New Haven Bird Club weekend walk of the year saw 25 participants find 43 different species over four hours this morning in the park while negotiating an extremely high tide. The weather was perfect given the date. Highlights included two first winter Baltimore Orioles, a single Purple Sandpiper and a Dunlin with ten Ruddy Turnstones on the jetty, a Fox Sparrow and a close Northern Harrier.
