Hi Peter,

yesterday was the last Tuesday walk for the Spring series.  We had a very nice core group of regulars this year, sharp-eyed and good-humored.  The warbler activity was noticeably quieter than recently, but we managed to eek out 55 sp.

Best,
Bobbi

We had 18 species of warblers (not too bad) including Canada (very dull female), Wilson's, Bay-breasted, Blackburnian; also Spotted Sandpiper, Acadian and Least Flycatchers, Osprey, Turkey Vulture, Hummingbird, and Gray-cheeked Thrush.

Here's the list. See you in the Fall (August...)

May 19th Michele's Big Sit

From Heidi

Honoring Michelle Dreger

Hi Everyone,

In spite of the dreary weather a good time was had by all at Michele's Big Sit Retirement Party. 
We huddled under a tarp that Steve strung over the path and we did more standing that sitting but it is a testament to Michele's spirit that
over the course of the day about 30 people stopped by to wish her well and to thank her for her inspiration and encouragement.
Dennis said a few words on behalf of the club and Paul presented her with a lovely watercolor of a Scarlett Tanager. The club also gave her
a tote bag with the BBC logo, ordered from the website. We ended the day earlier than expected but many in the group did some serious birding and 
I am going to guess that we saw or heard nearly 40 species. Michele has the final tally.

Thanks for helping to show our appreciation for all that Michele has done for the birding community 
and to wish her well on her future adventures.

My best, Heidi

Hi Peter,

Well, I wasn't even sure the walk was going to happen, as it was raining fairly hard when I got to the GAP arch. But there were people there (2) and one was from CA so I thought we needed to show him how we do birds in Brooklyn. We later added a couple more people to total 6 overall.

In spite of the rain, it was incredibly birdy in the park; one of the birdiest days I've seen in a long time. Since I've been away, maybe you've had these numbers during the week, but it was really great and we ended up with 80 species.

Highlights:
There were lots of numbers of just about each species. We had at least 7 Wilson's Warblers, 10+ Magnolia, a Prairie, a couple of Bay-breasted, several Blackpoll and so on.
We also had 6 species of flycatchers including at least 3 Leasts...
There were lots of swallows on the lake including 4+ bank and at least one cliff. 
Add to all of that 2 Lincoln's Sparrows, many singing Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, 2 Indigo Buntings, Orchard Oriole....
And, thanks to Sean Sime's tweet, we went up to Lookout and got some looks at the Mourning Warbler up there.

All in all quite a day.

Here's the list.

Tom
