This morning I was talking to a staff member at the Coast Guard in New Haven, and yesterday afternoon he saw a bird off the Pardee seawall (Morris Cove near Fort Nathan Hale).

He gave a pretty good description of a Dovekie actively feeding near the shore- a small bird, no neck, short bill, all black, with some white on it.  He didn't have a field guide with him, or a camera.  He will try to get out there this afternoon for a photo.
