Subject: flying squirrel!
Date: Mon Apr 22 2019 19:51 pm
From: ctbirds AT lists.ctbirding.org
 
I have been trying to figure out what has been getting into my bird seed
bin, in the mudroom. A few years ago we had a flying squirrel. I put a
"have a heart trap" in mudroom with bird seed in it. But this clever
flying squirrel, managed to flip open the top of the bird seed container
and has been raiding my bird seed. I kept thinking that I left the top
open, after I filled my feeders, but I just made sure to close it. I just
came home from a meeting, and there in the bird seed container is this
adorable, big eyed flying squirrel. I guess the seed level was low, so it
couldn't jump out.
Well, I released it in the back of the yard, and it "flew" out. Still
trying to figure out where it gets in from.
But it was soooo cute!

Flock of around 250 glossy ibis, including 2 WHITE-FACED IBIS, found with Mark Aronson to the East of Hammonasset, viewed north of Route 1 from the bridge over Hammonasset River. They are flighty and small groups are coming and going, but the flock seems to be staying put. Coordinates: (41.2756927, -72.5472998)

Yesterday afternoon at Rocky Hill State Park, a snowy egret in the swamp and lots of brants near the beach. At least 6, maybe more, ospreys were flying overhead as well as one bald eagle which put in a brief appearance.

Sorry about that - my phone does not seem to like sending the message
text along.

Frank Gallo had spotted the CA Gull when we arrived around 4.45. We then
lost it about 5-10 minutes later as it walked (!) behind a sandbar not
to be found again. It has not been seen flying away this time. Maybe a
dozen people had been searching for it between 5 and when we left at 6.

Severin,
