7/28  Somers Mill Pond, Scantic River  8:30 AM

Enjoyed a nice morning paddling the river before
another hot day and tallied 30+ birds.  Highlight of the day was an adult 
BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERON, the first one I have ever seen on the Scantic. 
Floated fairly close to it as it stood along the shore and then flew to a 
perch in a nearby tree.  Got good looks at it's head plume and red eyes!
