Peter,

The last walk of the season was very productive. Three birders later joined by two others met on a cold and rainy morning but were warmed by good bird activity and friendship. 70 species including eye (and later toe) level Nashville, Pine and  blackpol Warbler found by Patti O'kane. Lincoln Sparrow and Purple Finch found by Bobbi Manian, Cape may Warbler and White crowned Sparrow were also observed. A bald cypress with three Cooper's hawks in juvenile and adult plumages rounded out the day. An interesting mix of mid and late fall species. A nice end to another Migration season in prospect park. I enjoy the walks more and more as time goes on It continues to be an honor and my pleasure to represent the Club and give back what was given to me by you and so many others.

Best,

D

Hi Peter

we had a good walk today with the picnic tables, the south side of the lake and the hammerhead being the most active.  Then it immediately died down from 3-sisters around thru LeFrak.  There were enough birds to keep everyone's interest and we decided to extend the walk one more week to next Tuesday.  

best,
Bobbi

Best,

Dennis

Hey everyone it was good to see you all in the park today. Congrats to Angie and Ryan on their upcoming wedding.

Some Fifteen birders a few new faces among them met at the Pergola on a perfect fall morning. Highlights were solitary sandpiper, 2 cape may warbler fall Baypol extravaganza and a sky clouded over with swifts. Well maybe about 50 swifts. I think  Time to say goodbye to warblers and hello to sparrows over the next few days.

Ok coastal loop trip tomorrow.

Best,

D

Hi Peter,

It was a beautiful day today, cool, dry and with a slight breeze. It seemed that a lot of birds had been swept out of the park last night, but there were some remaining small groups particularly in the southern end of the Park. 

We ended up with 46 species. Highlights were a Sharp-shinned Hawk chasing after an American Kestrel, some very cooperative, low warblers including Cape May Warbler, Pine, Blackpoll, Magnolia and lots of Northern Parulas.

Here's the list. I'll post a couple of photos on the facebook site.

Best regards,
Tom
