>From Meredith Sampson w/ Brian O'Toole, Penny Solum, Jalna Jaeger,& visitor from Bethel:12/14/14 - Old Greenwich, Greenwich Point Park:  SHORT-EARED OWL -       strafed through holly grove affording only a 2-3 second look, leaving us       drop-jawed in its wake!       Also, Common Yellowthroat.       Stamford Harbor by Dolphin Cove:  237 Greater Scaup (as best as               I could tell, they were packed very tightly).       Stamford Harbor, west branch:  3 American Coots. Outside of my territory:  2 COMMON RAVENS in Havemeyer section ofOld Greenwich, reported by Alan Scuterud. We tried very hard for the Snowy Owl seen during the previous week,but no luck.Interesting to note:  low numbers of ducks, Brant (none at the point!), robins.Surprising misses:  Great Blue Heron, Kingfisher, kinglets, Winter Wren,Brown Creeper. THANK YOU to Brian, Penny, Jalna and guest for their help, which madethe CBC even more enjoyable. Meredith SampsonOld Greenwich
