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.
