Frank and Frank,

I can confirm that a juvenile White Ibis was indeed seen on the 1979 New 
London CBC at Rocky Neck State Park.  The bird was first found in 
October 1979 and stayed at least through early January 1980.  It was my 
life and state White Ibis.

And I saw the WHITE IBIS there at dusk (5 pm), along with 5 GREAT EGRETS 
and 1
Great Blue Heron.

I'm almost certain that WHITE IBIS had been recorded on the New London 
CBC (Dec.
1979). Bob Dewire (Compiler) should be able to confirm this.

I also saw these tonight, for Stratford-Milford Count Week (at least):
BOAT-TAILED GRACKLE (20), BC Night-Heron, Common Raven.

12/19/2012 Stratford Warehouse Pond on Long Beach Blvd. I stopped by 
around 4:15
p.m. and the Immature White Ibis was roosting on the fallen tree hanging 
into
the water of the pond with 2 Great Egrets. This is now count period for 
the
Stratford/Milford CBC, so it's officially on a New England Christmas 
Count,
probably for the first time in count history.
