Sherwood Island, Westport
I counted 16 Glossy Ibis around noon, on the west side near the pond. The mowers starting up, though, shooed them away; they headed toward Mill Pond. Sorry to have missed the grasshopper sparrow!
Also today on the park's west side: Brown Thrasher, Common Yellowthroat, Wild Turkey, Gray Catbird, American Goldfinch, and American Redstart, plus 5 Snowy Egrets and 15 Double-Crested Cormorants chasing fish (or something) in a tidal creek (seen from the viewing platform). That was cool to watch.
