Central Park Peak Migration

Tuesday was a tremendous day for Fall warblers, thrushes and other migrants. I went with the Linnaean NY group then later left them and sat by some jewelweed and watched a hummer feed. The first three have replaced backgrounds.


We went on a terrific field trip to Doodletown on Saturday. We saw many wonderful birds spotted by a sharp group of birders. Marc found a Five-lined Skink. I spotted the Worm-eating warbler. Everyone contributed sightings. The American Wisteria was blooming allover the place. It was a glorious day.

The full birds report will eventually be posted on the Linnaean NY website Field Trip Reports page.
I didn’t bring really long lens, consequently, the bird images are very grainy.

Central Park at Last

My first trip to Central Park this Spring was this morning. We saw warblers and other migrants.

Black-and-White Warbler breeds in northern and eastern North America and winters in Florida, Central America, and the West Indies down to Peru. One of its calls is so high pitched I need my hearing aids to hear it:
This one was passing through Central Park.
