8/11  Nice AM walk Sunday morn on Menunketesuck flats with Chris Loscalco 
and New Haven Bird Club.  A couple Little Blue Herons were feeding their 
probably fledged young (but still hanging around the nests) on Duck Island, 
when a Great-blacked back Gull took advantage of the feeding chaos to sneak 
in and grab one of the juveniles.  After much flapping and flaying in the 
rocks below the nest the Gull presumably enjoyed a nice breakfast at the 
expense of the hapless Little Blue.
