More unusual birds....

The recent weather pattern has dropped a couple of very nice birds in our state. Although these may not be quite of the caliber of Milford Point's LeConte's Sparrow, the birds currently visiting the paddle pool at Cabellas in Hartford (right by Rentschler Field) are still unusual in Connecticut. Unlike the LeConte's Sparrow, these birds are actually easy to observe - which I did for a little bit after work today...
American Golden Plover

And a pair of American Avocets!

Go see these birds if you have a chance - they are about as approachable as it gets. And keep your eyes out for whatever other surprises may be lurking out there still. 'tis the season!
