I had two Common Ravens calling from the ground at the southern edge of the marsh at the Stratford Great Meadows Unit of Stewart B. McKinney NWR (seen from Pleasure Beach). There was an American Oystercatcher out at Pleasure Beach yesterday and Monday and a Brown Thrasher at Long Beach yesterday (looked to be a fledgling based on the tail length). Looks like all of the plovers are fledged on Long Beach and the Least Terns are pretty much all gone.
I bet this recent cold front brought some migrant shorebirds along with it.
