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.
