American Pipit

The White-tailed Kite is gone...but there are many other wonderful species to find at Stratford Point on any given day. I filmed this American Pipit in the high-definition video below last Wednesday, October 13.

The species is only usually seen in migration in Connecticut, and is rather scarce even then. The coastal grasslands management area brings them in regularly. It is not quite a White Wagtail, but it is still a great bird. Come walk the perimeter trail and find one for yourself.
