Best variety I've had in a long time!  1/2 hour at Little Pond, 
Litchfield (9-9:30am) - on sandbar:

1 Short-billed Dowitcher , 1 Pectoral Sandpiper, 1 Semipalmated Plover, 
2 Greater Yellowlegs, 4 Semipalmated Sandpiper, 1 Solitary Sandpiper, 1 
Spotted Sandpiper.  Also, Northern Waterthrush at entrance from Gallows 
Lane entrance, 2 Green Herons and 1 Pied-billed Grebe.

1 ad Black-crowned Night-heron at Cemetary Pond (continues and unusual 
inland), and, 1 Great Egret from Point Folly @ Bantam Lake (also 
unusual, but annual occurence inland).


ps.  Yesterday @ Hollenbeck Preserve (across from Day Care Center) in 
Canaan, had one Giant Swallowtail.
