Addendum:  there was also a breeding-plumaged Common Loon and a few Least Terns off the seawall.  And later on (5pm), after the thunderstorm, Linda & I saw an Eastern Meadowlark at Sikorsky Airport.  Probably the same bird I had seen perched atop the fence Saturday morning.

Frank Mantlik just called to say that he and his wife Linda are looking at  
2 immature  Northern Gannets which have been plunge-diving for awhile  
directly offshore from the Stratford Seawall.  
A Royal Tern also flew by the seawall,  headed West down the sound.
