Excellent find! Eye drops or not. Probably a species more rare in CT than Thayer's Gull. 
Good things come in threes. What's next, California Gull?!

> It was on the Housatonic River with a large flock of mostly Ring-billed Gulls.  River Road, Southbury, just east of the intersection with Purchase Brook Road.  The flock moves around quite a bit.  At times the gulls have been feeding or roosting in the fields on either side of Purchase Brook Road at Mitchell Farm.
