I just happen to have my CT Birds handy here Clay. 

1 in Saybrook, June 30, 1938
1 in Stratford in 1959
1 in Madison, May 28, 1971
3 in Greenwich on September 18, 1971
1 in Guilford on May 27, 1979  (David Sibley's bird)

Of course this source is 18 years old now so if there have been any since I don't have them here.

Hi all - 

I don't have my copy of Birds of CT handy (it's packed away), but the last (and possibly only?) BN Stilt record that I am aware of in CT was the Guilford Sluice bird that was found by that great bicycle birder of the CT Shoreline, David Sibley.   This was before he got a middle name, and was still sometimes known as "Fred's son" or "Steven's brother".

I saw the Sluice bird on May 27, 1979.
