Passing these along.
From Michael Carretta:
2/20 - Stratford, Long Beach - Possible Ivory Gull or Albino Gull, Frank M. was there as well and suggested either an albino Black-headed gull or a Bonaparte's Gull. I uploaded photos to my Flickr account and posted them to a bird identification group. If someone could help I would be extremely greatful. If you do not have a Flickr account you can contact me by email: mikecarretta at gmail.com

I had 2 Common Ravens in Bridgeport near Fairfield Wheeler golf course, and about 25 Common Mergansers (for about 3 days) on the Mill River in Southport, visible from Bronson Road. A Tree sparrow at the feeder in Easton along with the Fox sparrow and a single Red winged Blackbird. Bluebirds and Robins everywhere!

02/20. Anchor Beach, Milford. Sunset or thereabouts. Raft of Brant approx. 10 meters from shore. The raft looked like a perfect circle. The Brant were literally touching each other. That kind of station keeping hasn't been seen since Nelson.
