I was visiting family for the week.  Birding highlights:

Stratford Point, Stratford
Sept. 25
(previously reported)
- the White-tailed Kite hunted successfully at 6:55am
- 6 imm. Black Skimmers (seen from the Point but the birds were just off of 
Short Beach)
- 1 imm. Peregrine Falcon

Shade Swamp Sanctuary, Farmington
Sept. 29
Blue Trail
- 1 Marsh Wren

(nearby Meadow Rd. was closed for construction or paving that day, so I couldn't 
go to Farmington Meadows).

Audubon Center at Bent of the River, Southbury
Oct. 1
short walk in the pouring rain
- 13 Wild Turkey feeding near parking lot
