On Swainson’s Day

Today I saw so many Swainson’s Thrushes they were uncountable. Many Northern Fickers, some fall warblers and a few early White-throated and Lincoln’s Sparrows and a Junco.

Mist and After

We started the day early when it was still foggy this Sunday, September 17, in Central Park. I hoped for Fall warblers but didn’t see many today. If I take the time to look I can always find some interesting things to photograph.

3 Birds and a Spicebush

I saw a good number of migrants at Strawberry Fields on September 9, 2017. Not many elsewhere. It was a gorgeous day with a hint of Fall in the air.
