Sparrow time in Connecticut

Clay-colored SparrowOctober 23:  Here in Connecticut when a majority of the other passerines have departed, the sparrows arrive. Along many woodland edges one can depend on flocks including any or all of Song, Swamp, Savannah, White-throated, White-crowned, Chipping, Field, Dark-eyed Junco, and before too long also American Tree Sparrow. Less common in the east are Vesper, Lincoln’s, and Fox, and occasionally a still less common species shows up like Lark, Harris’s, or the Clay-colored Sparrow presently at Hammonasset State Park in Madison.
