Today I conducted the monthly survey of the Herricks Cove IBA. It was very slow birding with only 35 species in two hours of covering the entire IBA. The highlight however came early in the survey when a Snowy Egret flew past the marsh. When i first spotted it it was flying quite high above the marsh so I don't think it took off from Herricks Cove. AS it flew by heading south it started flying lower but did not land. I checked for it along the CT river and at Allen Brothers Marsh but did not relocate it.
However, at Allen Brothers i did count 47 Wood Ducks, 8 Green Herons, and a Solitary Sandpiper that flew over.
