Subject: [CT Birds] Extralimital : CORN CRAKE - Long Island, New York 11/7
Greetings CT birders,
The Mega-rare CORN CRAKE found 11/7 on Long Island, New York, along the westbound Ocean Parkway, near Cedar Beach, Babylon (Suffolk County) showed very well for the mob of birders, including me. Congratulations and thanks to Ken & Suzy Feustel for finding and identifying it, as well as promptly getting the word out.
My record photos of it are here:
My eBird list, with exact map location, is here:

Finally, for those planning to go, check for updates, and info such as where to park (on 11/7 police allowed us to park on the grass shoulder of Ocean Parkway, despite "No Parking" signs), on the NY birding list-serve here:
