Subject: [CT Birds] Greenshank update/other extralimital rarities
The Long Island COMMON GREENSHANK has not been seen since about 7:30 AM
today after it flushed due to people on the golf course. Hopefully it will
return for more birders to enjoy.

There are a number of extralimital rarities in the Northeast right now.
Closest to CT is a Chuck-will's-widow at Tillinghast Pond Manangement Area
in Rhode Island, which is exactly 1.5 miles from the CT border.

Rhode Island and New Jersey both have a Wilson's Plover.

Massachusetts has a Townsend's Warbler in Provincetown, a bird long overdue
in CT.

Other surrounding states have the regular spring overshoots such as
Yellow-throated Warbler, Summer Tanager and Blue Grosbeak.
