On behalf of compiler Bob Dewire, I am passing on highlights from today's New London CBC. There were 121 species, not counting one area not yet reporting and a few species awaiting confirmation.
Pacific Loon - continuing bird at Enders Island
Razorbill (5) - previously reported from the Orient Point Ferry
Common Murre (3) - previously reported from the Orient Point Ferry
Blue-headed Vireo - behind Mystic Market in West Mystic
Orange-crowned Warbler - also behind Mystic MarketCommon Yellowthroat - Haley's Farm
Spotted Sandpiper - Groton-New London Airport (not viewable to public)
Great Egret - same as above
Iceland Gull - Smith Cove in Quaker Hill
There were many records broken, especially for corvids and common feeder species. Also a good day for owls.
