Went to Colebrook Rs from 3:30 to 4:15 and saw the following:

12 Pipit
1 Spotted Sandpiper - only sandpiper there!
12+ White-t-Sparrow
3 Junco
no water birds at all -?
with little else of interest - but was such a beautiful day there today!

  I went seabirding on the Lady Frances cod boat out of Point Judith,  
Rhode Island today. The Lady Frances left the dock at 7:00 am and  
returned at 4:00 pm. The vessel traveled to SE Coxes Ledge- 32 miles  
out southeast of Pt. Judith. Highlights: The continuing 1st cycle  
summering Kumlien's Gull was in the harbor this morning on the beach  
near the Jerusalem town dock. It continues to have severely worn and  
haggard plumage, most likely the bird is quite unhealthy.  80 - 90  
Cory's Shearwaters (most sighted on the way out to Coxes, and on the  
return (maybe a dozen seen on Coxes), 140 - 150 Greater Shearwaters  
(most seen on Coxes), 4 FULMARS (first of the fall season), 1  
Red-necked Phalarope, 2 - 1st cycle LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS that  
came to my chum line.

  1 Peregrine Falcon following a Greater Shearwater on Cox's (strange  
behavior....the Falcon would hover over the flying Shearwater and then  
follow behind it only to raise up and hover over it again). Both birds  
flew off into the distance with the Falcon following and repeating  
this behavior.  120 Gannets, 1 possible BRIDLED TERN.....saw a large  
tern with a sooty gray back and long sooty gray tail in the distance  
feeding with a small flock of plunging Gannets. It came from the  
southeast and left shortly after heading due south out of sight.  This  
Tern also plunged a few times. And on Cox's Ledge: 1 flicker, 3  
Yellow-rumped Warblers (Landed on the vessel), 6 unidentified  
warblers, 3 other unidentified passerines. Gull numbers seem to be  
increasing with several hundred including 18 Laughing Gulls and 1  
Appledore Island banded and leg marked Gull out at Coxes.

Birds flew steady all day.

3 Rusty blackbirds -- 1 m and 2 f -- see in the grassy median of I91 near the 
Hartford airport.  See?  There is something good that can come of being stuck in 
traffic!

And this is too late to do anyone good, but I had a black-billed cuckoo in my 
yard over a week ago.
