[CT Birds] Bobwhite Question

Hi all-

I went up to the cape this past weekend and spent a lot of time with  
bobwhites at the feeders of the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. As a  
part-time cape resident I've seen and heard bobwhites a bunch and have  
a breeding site close to home where the males do their bob-o-white  
throughout the summer.

However, I've noticed that there have been no CT reports. In the Bird- 
finding guide to CT written by Buzz Devine and illustrated by Mark  
Szantyr it listed Holly Farm as a possible location, though recently I  
heard something saying they haven't been there in a few years.

I'm curious to know more about their status in the state at the moment  
and if anyone has seen them in the past few years.

I hope it's not too late for this wonderful bird in CT.
