Eric Miller again found Western Tanager this afternoon. I don't know whether to refer to it as the Western Tanager or a Western Tanager. The location is about a mile and a half drive from Alley Pond Environmental Center, or whatever that comes out to as the tanager might fly. The site is Crocheron Park in Bayside (also shown on Google Maps as John Golden Park). The specific location was on the back (south) side of Crocheron Pond (also called Golden Pond).
>From the Cross Island Parkway, go west on Northern Blvd. to 221st Street (second light after the parkway). Turn right and continue northward until the end of 221st , then make a left onto Corbett Road. When you hit 35th Avenue, make a sharp right and go down the hill to the pond. Parking here is ample. Hopefully, this will be a more reliable situation than the one in Alley - especially as we're heading toward CBC time.
