I did some coastal birding on Thursday afternoon for the first time in
quite some time! Highlights included some remaining Snow Geese and my
personal high count of Horned Grebe from one location:

West Haven, Sandy Pt:
56 Snow Geese
4 Piping Plover
5 American Oystercatcher
1 Greater Yellowlegs

West Haven, St. Johns By-the-Sea:
109 Horned Grebes (in rafts of 5-30 birds, all plumages, but most in
breeding plumage)
8 Red-throated Loons

West Haven/Milford, Oyster River:
17 Bonaparte's Gulls (all adults)

Bridgeport, Seaside Park:
1 Eurasian Wigeon
2 "Kumlien's" Iceland Gulls (adult, first-winter)
