Below is a contributed photo from A.J. Hand who spotted this Dickcissel at Connecticut Audubon Society's H. Smith Richardson Wildlife Preserve and Christmas Tree Farm.
You may be able to find it again in the Christmas Tree Farm portion of the preserve on Sasco Creek Road in Westport. There are also many migrant Bobolinks stopping over across the street in the long grasses of our field habitat. The Christmas Tree Farm is known to be an excellent fall and winter birding site with many rarities seen over the years. Help us add to that list and submit your sightings and photos to us. Our thanks to A.J. for the find and the photo.
