7/17 - Stonington, Barn Island -- BLACK-BILLED CUCKOO
Nick Bonomo gave me a heads up that Wilson's Storm-Petrels were being seen from land on Long Island, so I did an hour-long scan from Stonington Point without luck. Nothing more interesting than some Purple Martins and a Black-crowned Night-Heron. Two Common Loons were present in basic plumage. One was daintier and about 15% smaller than the other, but a common none the less. Green-heads, deer flies, and mosquitoes were brutal at Barn Island at dawn (duh) despite copious amounts of bug spray.
