We had a chance to tour the Southeast Connecticut coast this past weekend. The sea birds are getting set for winter and the humans have done their preparations for the likely weather to come.
Continuing our review of late summer visits along the Connecticut shore, we found these sandpipers, probably greater yellowlegs.
During our visit to Connecticut several months ago, we had a visitor up close. This House Sparrow, I think, is a frequent user of the bird bath and feeders provided by my brother.
