Stratford Pintail, area shorebirds

Got out for some local shorebirding around high tide before a steady rain began. The highlight, though, was a duck. A female-type NORTHERN PINTAIL was present among a flock of Mallards at Stratford Marina.

I didn't run into any uncommon shorebirds, but numbers continue to slowly build. For example, Milford Pt held 107 Semipalmated Sandpipers and a couple Stratford spots had a combined 40+ Greater Yellowlegs.
