Hammonasset:  Ash-throated flycatcher - in location described by others,
Meigs Point trail, slipper shell beach area, foraging in rocks (apparently
quite successfully) and feeding on bittersweet berries on the other side of
the trail.  Very photogenic.
Also female Northern Harrier; a pair of Common Eider; numerous Loons,
Common and Red-Throated; female Red-Breasted Merganser; Double-crested
Cormorant; and some sandpipers flying by.

Clinton Town Beach:  Common Loon and a dead Loon washed up on the beach.  I
am pretty sure it was a Red-Throated.
