A couple mid-afternoon stops along the shore produced not much more than a
few returning shorebirds. The poor breeding conditions of portions of the
eastern Arctic have not resulted in an early migration in Connecticut (nor
seemingly the entire region, if listserv reports are representative). Birds
are either right on time or a touch late, depending on how the next week
shapes up.

West Haven, Sandy Pt - 2 Black Skimmers, 3 Semipalmated Plovers, 2 Piping
Plovers, 4 Least Sandpipers, 2 Semipalmated Sandpipers, 1 Spotted Sandpiper,
2 "Eastern" Willet
Milford, Milford Pt - 2 Black Skimmers, 25 Common Tern (including two
begging juveniles), 1 Black-bellied Plover, 2 Piping Plovers, 4 Least
Sandpipers, 5 Semipalmated Sandpipers, flyby of 20 uid peep

The highlight was seeing the my juvie Common Terns of the year.
