Three spots & three targets, & got them all, & some other good birds.
Long Beach, Stratford:  Snowy across the inner channel, about 2/3's way down, along with Bufflehead, Common Goldeneye, Red-breasted Merganser, Common Loon, Hooded Lark, Mockingbird, &c.
Frash Pond, Stratford:  3 Canvasback, dozing, along with Hooded Merganser, &c.
Beaver Pond, New Haven:  2 drake No. Shovelers (not sure about hens), 4 American Coot, a couple dozen Mallards & more Hooded Mergansers, &c.
And, a Red-shouldered Hawk as I was walking home.
