Later, on a brief visit to Pelham Bay Park Bob and I saw the continuing 
American Pipit near the Orchard Beach parking lot and four Eastern Bluebirds at 
Turtle Cove (thanks Noa & May Cruz and Linda Yuen). 

Linda Yuen showed me a photo she'd taken today at the Orchard Beach parking lot 
of a winter-plumaged Laughing Gull (or hybrid) with a light mantle, probably 
the same bird photographed by Steve Walter on November 4th.
