Listing of some of the great CT birding spots. Connecticut has more than its share of great birders , but the one area of the state that receives less attention than it deserves is the northeast quarter. I'll define this area as anywhere east of the Connecticut River and North of Willimantic (Windham), although, of course, I may stretch the boundaries at any time. 2013 - I'm traveling more - to the SW so far, and I'll add some info about my adventures there.

What's Up with Me and Boston Hollow?
(see if you can hear the Ravens in the background)
I'd love to know what you think of these.
By the way, my cumulative count for birds in Boston Hollow year-to-date is 82. That is not a very impressive number, but there is little if any opportunity to find shorebirds, waterbirds, or ducks and geese, etc. there. I have now found a couple of places that might produce a duck or two in season this fall or next year. Also, I did not know the area well enough or spend enough time there to exhaust all the possibilities for migrants this spring. I figure a realistic total to shoot for is about 100 birds that could reasonably be expected to be seen there.
