>From Dave and Janet Provencher:
4/20 Hammonasset Beach State Park, Jim Bair mentioned the W-F Ibis and
Glaucous Gull at Hammo already. The Gull was a first winter and was seen in
flight only working its way towards the southwest. Janet and I saw 2 Ravens
looping through trees along Rte 95 at exit 71 in East Lyme at about 10:20.
Interesting evidence of possible breeding expansion in southern CT.
4/20 Lyme, Nehantic State Forest 3pm - 4 pm. Stopped to check for early
migrants. Very little to be had. Pine Warblers in the usual places and 1
singing Palm Warbler along the big wooded swamp that crosses the forest road
on the east end, (where most of the Nehantic Prothonotarys have been found).
Did find a few Two-lined Salamanders by poking in the streams.
