This is a different sort of coastal waterbird - can you identify it?
It is a species that utilizes many of the same habitats as our shorebirds, long-legged waders, and even terns. It can be found infrequently across Connecticut in much of the year. Some of our volunteers have reported them on International Shorebird Surveys as well. Examine it and see what you can come up with, and I will post the answer in a few days. Good luck!
