Subject: [CT Birds] Evening Hammonasset sightings
Tonight (4/6) between 6-7 we saw an Eastern Meadowlark in the marsh area to
the right before the Cedar Island trailhead. My first ever!

Also saw two flickers at the head of the trail, and two yellowlegs in the
same marsh area as the meadowlark.

From the platform, saw
2 oystercatchers (with great light showing off their orange),
3 piping plovers,
Lots of red-breasted mergansers,
Either American Golden Plovers or Black-Bellied Plovers
