A huge surprise!!
Stratford-end of Long Beach Boulevard looking towards the red and white smokestack- 16 Boat-tailed Grackles,heard calling first and couldn't believe my ears, but picked up my bins and got my scope in the direction of the sound- there were the grackles on top of one of the silver oil tanks feeding with the pigeons. I watched them for about four minutes before they all flew northwest. Then I heard two from across the way at Pleasure Beach calling and sitting atop a tree. I assume they gave a new roosting location in Bridgeport somewhere since no one has seen them in quite some time.
