August 7 - Connecticut Chase

No, I wasn't chasing a Connecticut Warbler but rather chasing into Connecticut for a White-Tailed Kite at Stratford Beach and Short Beach. With friends Bill E., Simon K, and Purple Chickadee Steph S. we took the ride up I-95 to Stratford, CT.

We saw the kite from 3 sites today - Stratford, Short Beach, and Milford Point. These sites are all within 10 minutes of each other. We also saw Peregrine Falcon, Black-Bellied Plovers, American Oystercatchers, Yellow-Crowned Night Herons, Whimbrel, Eastern Kingbird, Purple Martins
