I just had a call from Alex Burdo.  He is in Wallingford, on Whirlwind Hill Rd.  There is a flock of Canada Geese in a field of dairy cows.  In the flock he had one standard Richardson's Cackling Goose, along with a still smaller goose that he believes is a good match for a minima.  He has seen minima elsewhere but can not recall any CT reports.  He's hoping some of CT's more nuanced bird identifiers will check it out.
