This morning I walked out Long Beach in Stratford to Pleasure Beach in
Bridgeport from 0800-1150. There were pockets of passerines in the better
habitat, a few finches were going over (Goldfinch, House Finch, Siskin, and
Purple in that order of decreasing number), there was a nice movement of
Pipits, and offshore was quiet. 60 species total. Highlights below.
