For anyone considering coming for the Common Teal, Arch Street is one-way only,south to north between Wesskum Wood Road and Sound Beach Avenue.  Best approachis to go south on Sound Beach Ave., then turn right onto Wesskum Wood Road.  At the4-way intersection by the tennis courts, turn right onto Arch Street, parking on right sideof road.  This is only a few yards from the open (unfrozen) water where the teal was seen. Meredith SampsonOld Greenwich

>From Meredith Sampson:2/06/13 - Old Greenwich, Binney Park -- male COMMON (EURASIAN) TEAL seen and               photographed at about 1:00.  Seen again at 5:30 w/ Cynthia Ehlinger.               Parking allowed only on Arch Street which runs along the backside of the park.               Teal was near stone bridge where a small group of Mallards hang out.  Views               are to "die for" as the teal was only about 10-12 feet from shore, apparently               and amazingly oblivious to presence of passersby and dogwalkers.
