3/13 Westport, Compo Beach, 12:30 - 1st-winter ICELAND GULL, and 30+ Bonaparte's Gulls foraging with the usual gulls in the turbulent waters near the "cannon" point. I last saw the wintering adult Iceland Gull here on 5 March; it appears to have moved on.
3/13 Stratford, 600 Long Beach Blvd., 5:15 - lots of ducks in the 'warehouse pond', including 3 male NORTHERN SHOVELERS.
A stormy day today, indeed. It was an angry ocean, and limbs and trees were falling all around.
