Merry Christmas, Steve,
I didn't post results of Stratford birding yesterday 12/24, but I logged some Count Week species: Green-Winged Teal (Wooster Pond & 611 Access Pond), Canvasback (5 at Frash Pond), Northern Gannet (Lordship Seawall), Black-cr Night Heron (10 at 611 Access pond), Am Oystercatcher (2 - Milford Pt), Greater Yellowlegs (12, Johnson Creek, Bridgeport), Peregrine (McKinney Refuge), Com Grackles (our yard), Cowbirds (large flock at/near Short Beach).
Unfortunately I have been unable to find the previous two Cackling Geese nor Pintails at Wooster Pond. The goose flock is much fewer the past 2-3 days.

You can come on down to the coast (from Milford's Morningside to Bridgeport's Fayerweather Isle) and conduct a sea-watch. Or, jump on the Port Jeff Ferry ($18) and scan the Sound, at least until you reach NY waters (7.5 miles from the CAS Coastal Center). Or, contact me about a last minute assignment including Milford Point, Silver Sands and other choice birding locations.
