We had Ruddy Turnstones yesterday at Greenwich Point and Red Wing Blackbird at Cove last Saturday.  We had a Winter Wren on the CBC but that was 2007.

133 species reported in CT so far for 2008. Some missing species that are
certainly in CT but not actually reported yet this year (unless I missed
it, a real possibility) include; King Eider, Northern Harrier, Ruddy
Turnstone, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Winter Wren, and Eastern Meadowlark. Oh
ya, there is no doubt that somewhere in CT there are more Bohemian Waxwings!
