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.
