Sara was correct. EJ found the bird first in West Haven off Bradley Point and saw it fly west. It was then relocated in Westport.

Mark,
I'm not recalling a West Haven bird, but maybe there was one there the same year as the Westport bird?
Then there was a probable one Luke Tiller et al saw last fall from Greenwich Quaker Ridge hawk watch. Though I don't believe a report was ever submitted to the bird committee.

Thanks to Dan Finizia and Sue Talbot for finding it. Phil pointed out that it is only the third record for RI. Connecticut has had only one record.
