>> Further expanding on Greg's post regarding bill comparison I put up 2 photos on the COA web page that show the PFGO's from the same side: one from the Windsor bird and another from the Middlefield bird. I noticed from my photos that there is some variability in bill pattern from side to side on the Windsor bird.

>> Individual White-fronts may well have different patterns of dark feathers on their pale bellies.  Not sure if these patterns are completely unique (like say the black-and-white patterns on zebras are supposed to be), but multiple birds in CT and elsewhere in New England could have different patterns.  So if there are good photos of the bellies of these birds we could perhaps tell how many White-fronts are around.  And even on swimming birds, I wonder if the dark feathers that can be seen on their sides near the waterline will be unique.
>> 
>> On a related note - earlier in the month I was in the central valley of California in a failed effort to see a Falcated Duck that had been faithfully coming to one small lake every day for months except the day I was there.  While waiting in vain for this Asian vagrant, I spent a full day looking at all the other waterfowl in the lake, including many White-fronts.  This is where I came to learn about the White-front belly patterns.  For those that were out of the water, I noticed that their belly patterns appeared to be unique.  Plus there were some 1st-year birds still with no dark belly feathers at all (though the Sibley guide mentions that this plumage is only retained till Dec. of their first year).  Although that was an interesting set of observations, I would have gladly traded all that even for a brief glimpse of the Falcated Duck.

>> I had been searching for a lighter roast decaf shade-grown organic fair trade coffee for a long time. The Birds and Beans Smithsonian decaf is dark roast. Well, I finally found a good one at the new Fresh Market on Rt 44 in Avon. Larry's Beans has a nice line of decaf and regular shade-grown organic coffees, and according to the bag they are produced sustainably...even their trucks use old vegetable oil. Their facility uses solar panels and they roast beans in a passive solar, rainwater-harvesting warehouse. The bag itself is biodegradable. What more could you ask???
>> 
>> I had conversations with the rep from Birds and Beans who wanted to get a coffee buying club started among birders around Hartford. The problem with ordering from any of these companies is paying shipping unless you want large quantities...it just isn't economically worthwhile for an individual. I am a coffee fiend, but I still don't go through that much each month!

>> James O'Donnell, an oceanographer at the University of Connecticut is preparing a summary article about LIS water temperature.  I believe he is submitting that to the Long Island Sound Study.  The Millstone temperature record is too short to comment on trends for there are some long-term natural cycles that are influencing water temperature in addition to global warming.  Jim has the temperature record from the former Noank Marine Lab (~1960's to ~1990) and recent discovered the Milford Harbor data collected by the National Marine Fisheries Service (late 1940's to the present).  
>> 
>> NERACOOS is working to create climate graphs for all the northeast ocean observation sites and its LIS partner LISICOS has create the first climate graph for dissolved oxygen http://lisicos.uconn.edu/clim.php .  While the buoy data records are only ~10 years in length, these graphs show the average, the variance and also the current conditions.  LISICOS is working on an interactive graph.  NERACOOS hopes to roll out climate graphs by next summer.
