We had a big wedge of snow geese flying over last night, 12/13/17, 50-plus, Greens Farms area of Westport, 7:30.  I had a headlamp on while walking my dog and looked up for a visual confirmation after hearing their distinctive honking.  So cool.

Subject: [CT Birds] Snow goose at night

While out in the evening of 12/7 with my telescope I heard a loud, puzzling
flight call, intermittent and kinda honky but not a Canada, heading
northerly, low and I could hear wing beats (and later a barred owl calling
but that's common here in the East Haddam woods).  With all the snow goose
postings I went and listened to an individual flight call on-line and I
believe that's what I heard! A new bird for the yard.
