9/2  Stratford, Prospect Dr., Stratford Point -  LARK SPARROW still present, 
feeding in old grassy paved lot below the red mower at 5:45 - 6:00 pm.  It 
appeared much like the "drab 1st winter" as illustrated in Sibley.  

9/2  Stratford, Dorne Drive, Short Beach, 6:50 - 7:40pm  - thousands of birds 
(gulls, terns, cormorants, shorebirds) in the Housatonic River mouth, and on the 
exposed sandbars.  Highlights were 4 juv. BLACK SKIMMERS, juv. Peregrine Falcon 
chasing everything up (and eating a shorebird).  Did not see the Avocet nor the 
B-N Stilt.
