    I stumbled upon a goldmine that was right under my nose! We drove by Hammonasset Beach State Park, one of my favorite birding haunts, to see if the ospreys had returned. They had, and, I found a great birding stand - that I never even knew was there! Can't wait to test drive it: this state park...

    This perch overlooking our pond has been used by both the Barred Owls, and this Marsh Hawk. Please let me know if I've miss-identified. I've looked at many pics, and I believe it is a Marsh Hawk, but it may be a Coopers Hawk. I'm sure someone here knows. Educate me. I'll edit the post if I'm wrong.
