February was a quiet month for new sightings, as I only added two Connecticut species. As the month drew to a close there were plenty of signs of spring and I would expect the new sightings to pick up in the next week or two. Seeing a Dovkie (in Massachusetts) was a treat, especially at such close range and being able to get some good pictures provided a big psychological lift in what is a pretty dreary time of year. Even though I didn't see many new birds, I had quite a few opportunities to photograph some of the resident birds. Here's a recap.
