Westport, Sherwood Island -- 5:36PM - Solitary COMMON RAVEN flying Low
East to West over Pavilion Parking lot toward Millpond. Well seen 100
feet high. Much larger than American Crow, heavy long bill, wedged
shaped tail. Relocated the bird over Millpond and then Compo Beach
area. Very cool bird for the day. This is a first for me at this
location. A prefect way to end a nice day. Overall a fairly quiet day
but with some nice surprises and views.
