10/13. An eBird checklist from Cove Is. Park in Stamford by Lea Shaw reported a late Least Flycatcher. This morning, Greg Hanisek and I viewed subsequently attached photos that to us look like one of the western Empidonax species , GRAY FLYCATCHER. Louis Bevier, an expert birder from Maine (and formerly CT) just saw the pix and he agrees with that ID. This would be a first CT record.

Patrick Dugan is leading a walk at Cove Is. Wildlife Sanctuary this morning. It is unclear at this point if Lea Shaw saw the flycatcher in the wildlife sanctuary, or in the city park proper.
