Today, I spent sometime in Conn Hills at Orchid Pond and Boylan road junction pond, till my eyelashes were burning due to heat burn. Bird wise it was very quiet except for a Common Yellowthroat, Yellow warbler, Great Blue Heron and a Blue Jay that was imitating Red-shouldered Hawk at Boylan junction road pond.
Along the drive to Orchid pond I found a Ruffed Grouse crossing road! At Orchid pond, there was a flock of chickadee with some tufted titmouse were heard and observed. On the way back on, Trumbull Cors road, in a marshy location, there was a dead tree that was covered with hundreds of Barn Swallows. I also saw a few Tree Swallows along the wires.
