I was able to sneak away from school yesterday just in time to catch the Pacific Loon in the evening hours. Even then I could only stay for a few minutes. I had no time to really enjoy the bird, but at least it's on my list! Unfortunately no photos, as the light was too low for digiscoping.
Major kudos to Greg Hanisek, who has now found both CT records of Pacific Loon. The first one came on Long Island Sound, but this one came during his usual close monitoring of his local inland lakes/reservoirs.
(For those unaware, Greg Hanisek found CT's second PACIFIC LOON on Lake Quassapaug in Middlebury on 11/10...the bird continues as of 11/11.)
