11/23/11 Madison, Hammonasset Beach State Park. Snowy Owl seen on the beach from both Cedar Island platform (closer, about 75 yards) and the end of the Moraine trail at noon onward, having been found earlier by Ray Acker on Shell Beach. 2 Purple Sandpiper on the rocks at end of Meigs Point breakwater. 1 Northern Gannet, 1 Northern Harrier, 4 Red-throated and 1 Common Loon seen off the Moraine trail. Did not see the Chat or the Shrike at the West end, but others did catch a brief view of the Chat in the same area as before, as it appeared to grab a couple of berries and then retreated.
