I am fairly confident that it is the skull plate of a Sea Robin. This link is to fossilized collection pieces, but modern ones would be the same. Not sure how it wound up in the woods of central Connecticut, but I suppose a bird could have carried it there.

I don't have a photo of my own, but here's another reference.
