[CT Birds] CTBirds Digest, Vol 3140, Issue 3

I had a talk with the purple gallinule and he would like a hot meal, a roof over his head,and a ticket south. He prefers not to freeze to death, or be an easy meal for a predator. 
Kindness for an injured animal is easy to comprehend rather than all the other rationalizations... Simple.  So I am available to be on the rescue team, I have a canoe and live 5 minutes away.  Please email me off this at annmpacheco at gmail.com
Let's get off our soapboxes and move to action😊

> With the current strong NE winds and rain, and with Hurricane Joaquin forecasted to travel north up the east coast, it's not too early to start planning birding strategy to look for rare birds deposited in CT by these storms. ?Coastal areas, particularly those providing shelter from wind and rain, come to mind. ?Note that many state and town parks may be closed and inaccessible, due to high surf and coastal flood warnings. ?Also, consider that Long Island Sound is about the narrowest at Stamford (Shippan Point) and at Old Saybrook (Cornfield Point); shearwaters and other seabirds might be more visible at these "bottlenecks". ?Also, as proven out during Storms Irene and Sandy, large inland bodies of water should also be checked for storm-blown birds such as storm-petrels, or even tropicbirds.
> Of note, this morning a storm-petrel (Wilson's?) has been reported from a pond at inland Sterling, Massachusetts.
> The main directive to birding in storms is to be SAFE. ?No bird is worth putting your life and limb in jeopardy.
