Northern Bobwhites at Ansonia Nature Center

Subject: [CT Birds] Northern Bobwhites (presumably released birds)

12/7/14, in Ansonia, at the Ansonia Nature Center: a flock of eight Northern
Bobwhite. Seen feeding on the ground along the trails below the nature
center building between the building and the pond. I am aware of a nearby
resident who has released members of this species in this area before in an
effort to reestablish a "wild" population of Bobwhite in CT. Although the
chances of success are slim, the cause is noble. Even though the birds are
released, they are beautiful to look at and interesting to observe. So, if
anyone wants to see Bobwhite in a local natural setting, this would be a
good place to look.
