Fork-tailed Flycatcher - Dario Sanchez
Northern Lapwing - Noorden Bos
Wow! It's About Time! I know that I keep promising to do better on the blog. I just cannot do it with regularity. Maybe if I don't try to have prophetic submissions then I could write more often. We will see. November was an outstanding month in Connecticut for unusual birds; Fork-tailed Flycatcher, Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, Rufous Hummingbird, Calliope Hummingbird, and Northern Lapwing. Outstanding! I had the chance and luck to see all five and laughed with Noble Proctor at the Old Lyme/Old Saybrook Christmas Count about what a month it had been and how we could not remember another November, or any month, quiet as special! I hope you were able to get out and see at least some of these not-so-common birds for Connecticut. Since November, I have been working hard on a number of custom tours including one for Maureen C. and her husband to Galapagos and Machu Picchu. They had a great time and returned with many outstanding photos and memories. We have added a number of new tours to the CAS EcoTravel list and this has been taking much time to workout the logistics. I recently returned from another sucessfull trip to Arkansas and will tell you more in my next post. Let me know if you are reading my blog. I suspect any followers may have given-up. Cheers, AG
