Hi all,
It was a lovely day for this morning's Connecticut Audubon Coastal Center Hidden Gems walk at Roosevelt Forest in Stratford. Highlights including Green Heron, and Great Egret and singing Yellow-billed Cuckoo by the pond, Pine Warbler in the white pines, and a slew of woodland breeding species such as, Eastern Wood-Pewee, Great Crested Flycatcher, and Ovenbird. Our next walk is at Milford Point on Sunday, June 7 at 7:45 a.m. Call Louise at 203-878-7440 x 502 to register. 

There is a pair of Orchard Orioles nesting in the clearing at the Coastal Center. The male is singing now and sings throughout the day. There is at least a pair of Willow Flycatchers and Yellow Warblers singing near the Long Island Sound Observation Platform, daily. Apparently, the White Pelicans flew by Milford Point around 12:30 p.m. today, landed near Stratford Point and then flew west a few minutes later. Sherwood Park  and Shippan Point in Stamford would be good places to go check.
