Fisher Meadows Avon, CT

May 22nd 2021

Brian Toal – trip leader


15 birders joined us for our annual walk around Fisher Meadows recreation area in Avon. We had mostly resident species singing behind thick foliage, so it was a good lesson in learning the common bird songs. A highlight was 7 Blackpoll warblers that those with good ears were able to hear. Resident species found included: blue winged warbler, Warbling vireo, American redstart, Great crested flycatcher , Willow flycatcher and Yellow warbler. A Bald eagle gave us some excitement as it flew down the Farmington river. Near the end of the walk, we heard a Cuckoo that seemed to be a yellow billed. Some of the group stayed behind to try to get a better look at the cuckoo. The brown thrasher and orchard oriole that have been found in past years were not located . 46 species were seen or heard overall.
