Subject: [CT Birds] Forster's Tern Fairfield and extralimital note
Basic-plumaged Forster's Tern milling about with the Common Terns roosting
one jetty to the west of Penfield Reef in Fairfield. I believe this is the
earliest in the year I've ever seen one here.

On an extralimital note, there have been several Brown Pelicans spotted
today off the south shore of Long Island - anybody on the coast of CT today
should keep an eye out.
