12/19 – Westport CBC

On Sunday, I joined Charlie Barnard Jr. (captain), Scott Kruitbosch, Dave Zawisha and James Purcell, covering the Fairfield shore for the Westport CBC. Charlie has an extensive knowledge of birding Fairfield, which helped us a lot throughout the day.

Highlights included: Large waterfowl numbers including All three Scoters, Redhead, and Lesser Scaup plus Northern Gannet, Ipswich Sparrow, and Snow Bunting.

Scott posted an excellent summary of the day on the CT Audubon blog.
