the COA Wader Workshop): 5 LITTLE BLUE HERON (2 adults, 3 juveniles), 3
YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON, 10-15 Glossy Ibis, one Bald Eagle (that flew
over and stirred everything up in the marsh), Spotted Sandpiper, Saltmarsh
Sparrow, and many other notable species.  In the thickets near the parking
area: one WORM-EATING WARBLER was seen in response to pishing.  A visit to
the Menunketesuck Flats yielded: Black-bellied Plover, Ruddy Turnstone,
Willets, American Oystercatcher, Least Terns, and long distance looks at
Snowy Egrets, Little Blue Heron, and Glossy Ibis roosting on the trees on
Duck Island.
