flushed and then disappeared into a hedge row. More than likely
escapees (especially so with the Wallingford Rod & Gun Club in the

could imagine (hope) for the possibility of a population establishing
itself.

 From Meredith Sampson:
09/24/14 - Old Greenwich, Greenwich Point -- RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH in

 From Don Morgan:
08/20/14 - Mansfield -- There was a tremendous flight of Common
Nighthawks this evening  over the Willimantic River, just north of the
Eagleville Lake dam. The birds  stayed farther north than usual, so
most of my sightings were bins and scope  only, but I counted one
flock of 390 (very low, I'm sure). I saw flocks of birds at least 10
times or so, but I have no way of knowing if they were the same birds
or different flocks moving through. I counted well over 300 twice
more,  but also had many smaller groups, from about 170 down to as few
as 8. If they  were all different birds (unlikely) there would have
been well over 1000. I saw the first birds at 6:45 (but I had just
gotten there) and  the last ones at 7:45 (I left then - almost dark).
Normally the birds follow the river down to and past Eagleville, but
tonight only a few ever made it that far south. Must have been a good
hatch up north. In previous years I have seen as  many as 250 in a
single flock there. 

 From Sean Grace:
08/20/14 - Eagleville (Mansfield) -- When we arrived at 7:00 at the
Housatonic Valley Regional High School there was a flock of over 300
Common NightHawks passing over head down the  Housatonic River.  Then
another 200, then another 100 then 75.  It was epic and Zach Adams our
educator and I both counted similar conservative numbers.  675 total.

 From Tina Green:
08/20/14 - Westport, Sherwood Island SP -- Stilt Sandpiper (with 150
Semipalmated Sandpipers) in the Mill Pond before the entrance.
CT Audubon Tree Farm -- flyover Dickcissel.

 From Bev Propen:
08/20/14 - Milford, Milford Point, Connecticut Audubon Coastal Center
-- 10 to 1 PM; 4 JUVENILE YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERONS flying around,
landing, eating and then flying around some more.  When one flew off,
the others followed.

 From Alex Burdo:
08/19/14 - Fairfield, Hoydens Hill Open Space -- 1 YELLOW-BELLIED
FLYCATCHER, 1 BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER, 20 BOBOLINK.
Madison, Hammonasset Beach State Park -- 1 LITTLE BLUE HERON, 1
LITTLE BLUE HERON X TRICOLORED HERON.

"Dalmatian" spotted immature Little Blue Heron with about 8 white
immature and 2 adult Little Blue Herons. Lots of Salt Marsh Sparrows.

day.

Extralimital Note: Julian Hough posted about a Zone-tailed Hawk that
has been vacationing on Martha's Vineyard this summer.  "It goes
without saying that as the season progresses, this bird is likely to
move south and I have a feeling that it could well move along the
coast into Connecticut, and Lighthouse Point would be a likely conduit
for its journey south....pay particular attention to any Turkey
Vultures this fall with this species in mind!"


 From Hank Golet:
08/05/14 - Old Lyme, Hawk's Nest salt marsh -- imm WHITE IBIS.  Hawk's
Nest is at the start of the Sound View area. The marsh starts north of
Rt 156, goes under the road at small gas station, then to Hawk's Nest
area.  Be very careful driving in Hawk's Nest. Many kids playing and
on bikes in the road.
Sara Zagorski provided directions:
Hawk's Nest Rd is off of Rt 156 in Old Lyme. You will pass Smith Neck
Rd on your right, go past the AC Petersen stand, and it will come up
on your right. There is a road sign plus a big sign with Hawk's Nest
Beach on it. Go straight down until the road ends at the beach, and
turn right on Avenue A, which turns into West End Dr. There are
cottages on the left, and the marsh will appear on the right. Parking
is available there.

 From  Hank Golet, Sara Zagorski, Russ Smiley, and Dan Rottino:

AMERICAN AVOCET was flying over the rotary heading the west. Following
the bird in flight, it took a low circle over the Swan Pond but
decided against landing and continued west down the coast. The bird
was definitely interested in landing at the pond so perhaps won't go
too far down the coast before settling.
