9/13 Stratford, Access Rd Pool - 1 PECTORAL SANDPIPER, 2 Green-winged Teal, immature Bald Eagle overhead.
Stratford, Birdseye boat ramp - flock of 4 Bald Eagles (2 adult) migrating overhead, plus an adult Peregrine Falcon.
Stratford Greenway (Beacon Point Rd) - 3 COMMON LOONS migrating overhead, Peregrine Falcon. Yesterday (9/12) Donna Caporaso photographed a probable CONNECTICUT WARBLER with a Yellow Warbler in the fence of the sewage plant. Several of us today found 3-4 Yellow Warblers, but not the CT.
Stratford, Oak Bluff Ave - Great Meadows marsh just before beach entrance - at least 3 WHIMBRELS. Thanks to Shaun Martin for first reporting them.
Finally, some much-needed rain has begun.
