My last visit here got me two great birds to add to my Connecticut List. Wilson's Phalarope and American Golden-Plover. I had seen both species before on my trip to Texas and got to see them in their breeding plumage. While they weren't as decorated as when I saw them in spring, it was still a wonderful opportunity to see these birds. The pharalope was having a good time playing hide-and-seek with the many birders trying to see it. He kept darting in and out of the tall grasses and we went picture crazy trying to snap a photo or two... or 50. The Golden-Plover was playing a different game. He was playing chicken with us and got within 10 feet of the birders watching him. I am going to put a more detailed post of the pictures and poses I got from that experience in my next blog! Until then, get outside and see some birds!
