Greetings CT birders,
The Mega-rare CORN CRAKE found 11/7 on Long Island, New York, along the westbound Ocean Parkway, near Cedar Beach, Babylon (Suffolk County) showed very well for the mob of birders, including me. Congratulations and thanks to Ken & Suzy Feustel for finding and identifying it, as well as promptly getting the word out.
My record photos of it are here:   https://www.flickr.com/photos/avocetfm/

Finally, for those planning to go, check for updates, and info such as where to park (on 11/7 police allowed us to park on the grass shoulder of Ocean Parkway, despite "No Parking" signs), on the NY birding list-serve here:http://birding.aba.org/maillist/NY01
