As others have noted, East Rock Park was very quiet this morning with just
a handful of migrants to be seen. The nesting RAVENS have large young,
including one bird flapping at the edge of the nest, so they won't be
nestlings for too much longer. I didn't spend much time there and headed to
Stratford Pt to see if the fog had downed anything there...also quiet.
Sikorsky Airport held several Savannah Sparrows including one singing from
the fenceline. There were a few Willets in the marsh opposite the airport.
The marsh at Milford Point was busy with highlights being 830 Brant,
EURASIAN WIGEON (drake), BLUE-WINGED TEAL (drake), 160 Green-winged Teal, 5
Glossy Ibis, 30 Greater Yellowlegs, 1 LESSER YELLOWLEGS, and Purple Martins
back at the gourds.
