WHITE-FACED IBIS – Hammonasset Beach SP

En route to Cape Cod last weekend, Jim Orrico and I made a quick stop at Hammo for the White-faced Ibis reported there. Our search was fairly short and we soon found the bird with a flock of around 40 Glossy Ibis, the highest concentration I’ve seen in Connecticut. The flock spent some time in the East Marsh before moving over to Swan (Lake/Pond). Overall, great looks at a great western vagrant and a first for me in Connecticut.
