Upper Lake Whitney (Waite & Mather, &c.), Hamden. (Flo, some for your RWA list I think.)
Life Blue-winged Teal on Lake Whitney, hanging out with a Wood Duck couple, along with Black Vulture, FOY Barn Swallows, Purple Martin (F?) -- first for me at Lake Whitney (so huge), FOY Pine Warbler, Kingfisher (always a good bird to watch and hear), and the first successful Osprey dive I've seen.
