Anhinga (Florida) - Andrew Griswold

Interesting Time of Year
With the migration all but over and summer on the doorstep, this can sometimes be a quiet time for New England birders, but in the last week there have been some truly "fun" sightings in our areas. The Anhinga that made a showing in Hamden over the weekend was nice to finally record for the state as the first that was not one flying-by far overhead. My 13 year old son seemed to enjoy the chase! And the Magnificent Frigatebird seen out at Block Island must have energized a few observers!
Get-out and find those rarities!
