Photograph by Thomas A. Blackman. 4 • This smartly plumaged adult male Smith's Longspur attracted many birders during its one-day stay on 1 May 2015 at Allen's Meadow Park in Wilton, Connecticut. Photograph by Frank Mantlik. 5 • The first seen on Bermuda since 1907, this West Indian Whistling- Duck was first spotted 27 June 2015 and then made the rounds of the island, here 3 July at Cloverdale Pond.
