11th April – Sulas on Sea Street

After being in the office all day, when I arrived home,  Alex and I went for an evening stroll around the neighborhood. I had just got to the bottom of the street, when a stunning adult Gannet sailed overhead and then promptly began to plunge-dive into the harbor!

Gannets, typically seen well offshore, occasionally can be seen from land and I’ve seen them in New Haven harbor before. This was by far the closest views I’ve ever had in CT. Two other birds joined the first, patrolling the harbor edge right by Sage Grill, affording awesome views in the glow of the setting sun.
