Denise Jernigan, Janet Mehmel, and I had the following highlights today from Barn Island and Stonington Pt, both in Stonington, and Harkness SP in Waterford:

2 Common Loons, BI and St Pt
12 Glossy Ibis, BI
4 PIPING PLOVERS at Harkness, 1 on nest, 3 juv.
4 American Oystercatchers, St Pt
1 Lesser Yellowlegs, BI
6 Short-billed Dowitchers, BI
3 ROSEATE TERNS, 1 St Pt, 2 Harkness 
1 Willow Flycatcher, BI
1 E. Kingbird, BI
1 Yellow-throated Vireo, BI
12 Cedar Waxwings, at BI, all hovering over the marsh as if they were Kestrels and going down for all the bugs

2 Bobolink, at Avalonia Land Trust Meadow on Barn Island access road (Palmer Neck Rd), aka the "Castle" fields

Swallows everywhere at Barn Island, many more Barn than Tree.  They were having a field day with the insects.
