Hi all,

I may have missed it, but has anyone mentioned the age of the
Buff-breasted Sandpiper at Rocky Hill Meadows? Given the very early
date for this individual, I'm assuming the bird is an adult, but I
don't recall seeing anyone specifically mention that. Adult Buffies
are rare birds in CT and deserve mention. The bulk of the
Buff-breasteds we see here are juveniles from late August through
