On Sunday evening I noticed a good candidate for the cinnamomea subspecies of Solitary Sandpiper on the N shore of Saugatuck Reservoir .
Good photos from Jeremy were sent to Tony Leukering who agrees with my ID of this western-breeding form. It is the second documented CT record in eBird and one of few east of the Mississippi, although is very likely overlooked. Juvenile SOSA with buffy brown spots vs white on solitaria plus buffy tones overall.
The exact spot we viewed it from requires a permit, but it could be visible from the Saugatuck Universal Access Trail.
Chase and I also had 2 juvenile Glossy Ibis at Aspetuck Reservoir later that evening, which is only the second record for that area.
