We are now up to 127 species.  Great job!

Notable additions include:

Pink-footed Goose and Barnacle Geese, Enfield.
Snow Geese, (suspect report since it is from Hubbard Park where there are domestic white Geese and I've never heard of a Snow Goose there...has anyone had any?)
Northern Pintail, Konold's Pond.
Common Eider, Stonington.
Barrow's Goldeneye, Hammonasset.
Pied-billed Grebe, Fairfield County.
Red-necked Grebes, Stonington.
Anyone have the Eared Grebe?
