It seemed like a near endless variety of species when I visited Connecticut this past May! Once again, the new species was a shorebird that was mixed in with other species – the Black-bellied Plover!
The hotspot? Still the Coastal Center at Milford Point! While most of the birds in the mixed flock were ruddy turnstones and dunlin, there were maybe 8 or so of these plovers.
Hopefully I can plan some more Connecticut time for next year. If I can get all this in a single day, what would a few days bring?
