With few rarities around, and reading that the bird was still present this morning, I took a ride to Bridgeport. The park is named Seaside Park, and its quite a beauty. For several miles the roadway parallels the beach and has a lane for parking. So its quite convenient for birders!
The Ross' Goose was present as I drove up, and I had great views from the car. I then drove around a bit looking at other species. One of the favorites for me was a Horned Grebe is glorious breeding plumage.
Here is an image of the Ross' Goose
More can be seen here.
On my way back home I stopped at Sherwood Island Park, but there wasn't anything special to see here, so I continued on my way. Before crossing the Hudson River, I made a brief stop at Westchester's Croton Point Park. Here I had fine views of the nesting Great Horned-Owl, and then the long-staying (since December) Lark Sparrow.
