Just reporting a couple of things from birding this afternoon in eastern CT.

-  Western Tanager continues at the feeder in peace sanctuary in 
Mystic.  Make sure to go all the way to the top of the paved 
trail/driveway.  Thanks to Maggie who owns the house at the top with the 
feeder and is a very gracious host.  Also, around the yard was a 
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.

-  All 3 species of Scoter were seen from Ender's Island.

-  Several American Woodcock and a flying, and calling, Short-eared Owl 
were found along the entrance road to Barn Island in an open area near 
an odd house that looks a bit like a castle (at least it does in the dark).

Good birding,
