I hit the Pine Creek area in Fairfield from 2:30 - 4:30 this afternoon.
Although not an optimal time to go, it was still a productive visit,
highlighted by a nice bunch of migrants. I was only really able to cover
the Old Dam Marsh Open Space and the brush/dike trail behind the
ballfields, as I was pressed for time.

Highlights:

2 GLOSSY IBIS -- Flyovers among a small flock of eight Double-crested
Cormorant. Definitely had me excited for a second.
2 Killdeer
2 Spotted Sandpiper
3 Least Sandpiper
1 Ruby-throated Hummingbird
5 Warbling Vireo
1 Northern Waterthrush
1 Black-and-white Warbler
2 Common Yellowthroat
1 American Redstart
1 Magnolia Warbler
2 Yellow Warbler
