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 IslandRazorbill (5) - previously reported from the Orient Point FerryCommon Murre (3) - previously reported from the Orient Point FerryBlue-headed Vireo - behind Mystic Market in West MysticOrange-crowned Warbler - also behind Mystic MarketCommon Yellowthroat - Haley's FarmSpotted Sandpiper - Groton-New London Airport (not viewable to public)Great Egret - same as aboveIceland Gull - Smith Cove in Quaker Hill
There were many records broken, especially for corvids and common feeder species. Also a good day for owls.
