Little Egret – first Connecticut state record

Little EgretAugust 12: Finally, a new life species for Birdspix.com. For the past few days a Little Egret has been seen just offshore near where Rhode Island and Connecticut waters meet. It has been coming in with a flock of Snowy Egrets to roost for the night on the rocky breakwater just off Stonington, CT. The birds can be viewed only from a boat, and Captain Ian Devlin’s flat-bottom bass boat with its quiet electric trolling motor has been ideal for getting in close to the breakwater without disturbing the birds.  Ian has been taking small groups of birders out each evening for good viewing, the flock appearing nightly quite reliably just around 7 PM.
