 Madison Hammonasset State Park, New Haven, US-CT
Jan 19, 2015 12:57 PM - 3:00 PM
Protocol: Traveling
1.0 mile(s)
Comments:    3 Harbor Seals on rocks at end of moraine trail
22 species

Brant  18    in distance at end of moraine trail
Canada Goose  13    across from swan pond (near rotary)
American Black Duck  23
Mallard  12
Common Eider  1    alone on water at end of moraine trail
Common Goldeneye  2    end of moraine trail
Red-breasted Merganser  10
Red-throated Loon  1    moraine trail
Cooper's Hawk  1    I think it was a juvenile female based on its large size (comparing it to the 2-2.5 pound cottontail it was dragging into the bushes).  If you are leaving Meig's Point and heading out of the park, it was on the side of the road just before East Beach.  I've never seen a Cooper's with such big prey!  It was struggling to move the cottontail into the bushes.
