5/4. Bridgeport, Pleasure Beach.
While conducting a Plover survey, I saw what might have been an adult male WESTERN TANAGER. It flew among shrubs in the upper dune near the Bridgeport/Stratford border, near the two tall radio towers. It was bright yellow (and black?), appeared larger than an Am Goldfinch, and it flew low and fairly steady (unlike a goldfinch). I had just seen one in W. Texas last week, and this bird sure looked like one. Unfortunately I could not relocate it.
For those willing to try, it is a long 1.5 mile walk from the Long Beach (Stratford) parking lot.
