There are not a lot of birds around Westport these days. Hey — it’s (almost) winter.

But when they return, we’ll be ready.

At least, Coleytown Elementary School will be.

This is the welcoming scene, on Easton Road:

When Howard Edelstein made a Starbucks run at 6:30 this morning, he got an unexpected treat: this view of the Beaver Moon, shining brightly as it set over the new Bankside House condos on Wilton Road.

How bright was it? According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, this was just 2 hours after its brightest glow in all of November.

PS: The Beaver Moon takes its name from early Native American tribes and American colonists. This is the time when beavers begin sheltering in their lodges after gathering enough food to last the winter. Fur trappers, meanwhile, used this time to hunt beavers for their pelts.

How do you show the sights of Westport to holiday visitors? By horse-drawn wagon — straight from East Haddam — of course! This was the scene at Burying Hill Beach today. Safe travels! (Photo/Ed Simek)
