8/15. Stratford
Short Beach Park: 750 Common Terns, 1 ROSEATE TERN, 64 American Oystercatchers, juv PEREGRINE, and continuing hybrid GRAYLAG X CANADA GOOSE. (Birders have misidentified the latter as Pink-footed Goose and Greater White-fronted Goose).

Sikorsky Airport: juvenile HORNED LARK along Airport exit road. It was capable of flight; I don't think it came from a nest at this site, as no adults have been seen nor heard here during breeding season.
