Connecticut Shorebirds. Sort of.

(Long ago I gave up identifying the seagull species.)

Not a shorebird. A Northern mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos).

I thank Greg Hanisek for his gracious help identifying the dunlins, cormorants and mockingbird. Greg is a journalist and nature writer for the Waterbury (Connecticut) Republican American. He also has the most informative nature blog that I have run across at Talking Nature with Greg Hanisek. I urge you to visit him frequently. He is always discussing topics that John and I are exploring in the woods.
