Favorite Bird: “A favorite bird is hard for me. Of course, I love raptors and love working with raptors, especially owls, but I’ve also always loved the American Woodcock. Many people are not even aware that this 'goofy-looking' bird exists in northwest Connecticut, but I look forward to spring evenings when I get to listen for their 'peent' and try to get a glimpse of their intricate sky dance as they whistle faintly in the darkening sky."
