10/24 With winds from the northeast this morning, there was a decent migration
of waterbirds heading south (west) down Long Island Sound. I conducted a brief
"sea"watch from Stratford Point from 10-10:45, and recorded a steady migration
of Northern Gannets, DC Cormorants, both loons, and ducks. I wish I'd gotten
out earlier, and could have stayed longer.
