Hi Peter,

We had a small but brave group today, willing to walk many miles in search of the last of the migrants in PP.
 
The highlights were Indigo Bunting, nesting Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Green Heron and Barn Swallow; the feral rabbit from Monty Python's Holy Grail.....and we did get 4 species of warblers...including some interesting drab Blackpoll's...
Lots of singing Red-eyed and Warbling Vireos....and not a lot else!

Here are a few shots and the list.
Saturday on to the breeding birds of Doodletown and Sterling Forest.


Best regards,
Tom

Peter. Super slow day in the park for migrants with only 4 warbler species one of which is a local breeder and the other three were females including the dreaded female Blackpoll Warbler, harbinger of no more spring.  It was a great group of 9 birders and we had fun.  It did feel more like a summer day as most of the activity was of breeding birds, including fledgling Robins and Starlings.

Hi Peter,

14 birders had a good day at Plum today.  Shorebirds were not as prevalent as i had hoped, no RedKnots, Dunlin or Piping Plovers. But we birded the mudflats and marsh methodically, the birds here are often ephemeral, they appear and then they are gone.  We had the standard shorebirds, resident banded AMOY C6 has returned for his/her 11th year, and we had good looks at Sanderlings in various plumages, and we also had flyby SB Dowitchers and Glossy Ibises.  Late black scoters, found by Shane Blodgett, were a very nice surprise.  i wonder if the pair that summered here last year will return?

Of course the star of the day was the Franklins Gull found yesterday by Deb Allen, that everyone was searching for.  There were other birders on the beach today besides us. Earlier in the morning Shane briefly had the bird flying by the mouth of Gerritsen Creek, but the bird went up and over the highway before anyone else could get on it.  

Just around noon,  Shane yelled over to us something i didn't understand, but he and his group were hustling west on the beach and we quickly followed.  It turned out Sean Sime had just refound the bird all the way down at the west end by Kingsboro College.  It took our combined groups a few minutes to find the bird, being at a different vantage point than Sean was.  We settled in and Shane and Andrew Baksh made sure that everyone got good (if distant) looks before we all proceeded forward to try and get better looks, big THANK YOU to them!  Unfortunately, as we were walking west, and Sean and Rob were walking east, the bird flew and was not relocated.

Because it was otherwise quiet at Plum, we wrapped up with a quick hour walk at Marine Park.  There was at least one baby osprey in the nest and the oystercatchers and willets appear to be breeding.  (Marine Park list to follow in separate email)

best,
Bobbi

Peter,

20 birders met at the pergola on an unseasonably cool morning for a flycatcher and thrush search and workshop to close out the spring migration series of walks. Highlights were Alder Flycatcher, 16 Warblers, Grey Cheeked and Bicknell's Thrush. The Cooperative Bicknell's sang several times and gave great views for all. 67 species total. Thanks for letting me lead this series it was truly a privilege. 

See everyone in the fall,

Hi, Peter.

On a generally sunny, ornithologically underwhelming Mother's Day, fifteen of us recorded 46 bird species, including only 7 species of warblers in GreenWood Cemetery. Notable birds included Common Loon and Northern Rough-winged Swallow.
