Sounds like the same general area where a number of us had a Common Murre
on both Dec28 and Jan13 from the Orient/NewLondon ferry.
Perhaps the same bird?
PS.... Long Island Sound Bird Count compilation aiming for completion
within a few weeks, after the last reports reach us this month.

I just got a call from Shai Mitra from the Orient Point Ferry. He had
a full breeding plumaged COMMON MURRE in the middle of the Sound in
what he believes are Connecticut waters. He is going to check a map
when he gets in. His description of location lining up with landmarks
looks good for it being in Connecticut. He also had a flyby
RED-NECKED GREBE in the same general location.
