Carolyn's note reminds me that I wanted to report no fewer than 45 Amer Oystercatchers on the low tide flats around the mouth of the Housatonic on Saturday. I remember seeing the first AMOY ever found on Chimon Island back in the 70's and it was a big (birding) deal. Another interesting success story among all the reports of declines.
