Northwest wind yields birds

What started off slowly led to a fine moderate yield of migrating birds, with the Tuesday BBC inaugural fall walk the beneficiaries of at least 11 species warblers and the highlight of rare BLACK BILLED CUCKOO the prize.

The Cuckoo was found along Well Drive near the picnic tables Lamppost 249) .it Sat out in the open and even preened. A great photo by Janet Zinn is on the BBC Facebook page.

Reports of AMERICAN Redstart, Magnolia WARBLER , Black throated Green Chestnut Sided warblers were earlier single sightings ,whereas Lookout Hill summit meadows were unexpectedly quiet just after sunset to 8 am. But fortunately later for the BBC group with patience were rewarded with a moderate scattere  production of birds here and there.

See the list below post. There will be more days to come ..

By the way Joshua Malbin found SOLITARY SANDPIPER and YELLOW BELLIED FLYCATCHER ( seen later by BBC).Respectively, the sandpiper was along Prospect Lake south shore and the rare flycatcher at Lookout Hilltop .

Golden sighting

Phil Paine came through with a great sighting this morning atop Lookout Hill by Butterfly Meadow before 7 am with a female GOLDEN WINGED WARBLER sighting.

After leaving the meadow area , Phil ran into Linda Ewing and both headed back to the Hill top for the bird. But it cooperated with its sighting at the dirt switchback trail by the Maryland Monument, this GOLDEN WINGED reappearing in the brush next to the trail for a brief spell before it flew upward the slope parallel to the Monument stairs. I missed out shortly after reading the twitter tweets. It has not been reported since as the day got warmer.

Hi Peter,

We had a very small group today, but the birds were great!
At first I thought our bird-of-the-day was going to be a caterpillar...but then birds started showing themselves or calling and it went on and on all day.

The highlights were 10 species of warblers including both Waterthrush, Cape May, Blue-winged, N Parula, Chestnut-sided, Magnolia. We also had calling Alder and singing Willow and perching Yellow-bellied! There were 3 great-blue Herons and a Great Egret attending what we heard was a fish die-off; and we also had a singing White-eyed Vireo.

All in all a surprisingly birdy day.

Best regards,
Tom

Results of the first fall Thursday BBC walk

A quartet of birders including leader Tom Stephenson were successful this early August day sparked by a previous evening northwest wind. As far as I know at least 10 species warblers showed up with some flycatcher species to record as well.

Highlights including warblers BLUE-WINGED, CAPE MAY & CHESTNUT-SIDED. Those birds were joined by the BBC walk list of YELLOW-BELLIED and possibly WILLOW Empidonaxes Flycatchers. The Yellow bellied was at the slope between the Butterfly Meadow and Lookout Hill summit, in the elm grove. Nearby by the hydrant was the Blue Winged and Cape May seen in the Peninsula along the lullwater trail midway to the point. 

Also on Lookout Hill summit, a WHITE-EYED VIREO appeared.

A good day for the Brooklyn Bird Club first fall walk.


Tom Stephenson will send his report /list later.

My Twitter is broken. We have 8 species of warbler including bluewinged at top of metal butterfly Meadow area calling alder flycatcher across from cemetery

good north wind means...boids?

my Dark sky weather app says there's currently a Northwest light wind (<5 mph).it will shift West mid evening then north at midnight before east dominates.

Perhaps this favorable wind will kick-start some migrants our way. Find out in the morning!The BBC Thursday walks starts tomorrow..

Sept 3rd Shorebird Blitz

Message

Mon Aug 15, 2016 12:47 pm (PDT) . Posted by:

"Debra Kriensky" dlk2143

NYC Audubon is organizing its 2nd NYC Shorebird Blitz of the year on *Saturday,
September 3rd*. We're interested in getting a 1-day snapshot of shorebird
activity each spring and fall throughout NYC - not just numbers and species
but what the birds are doing as well.

If you're around this Labor Day weekend and are interested in
participating, all you need to do is:

- Email me to sign up for a location to count at - it can be anywhere in
NYC where there may be shorebirds! Please note your experience level with
shorebird identification, as there are some locations that would be more
appropriate for expert shorebirders, some that would be great for eager
beginners, and some for those in between. Whether there were no shorebirds,
just a few, or several hundred, we want to know about it.

- Go out and count at your assigned location anytime on September 3rd!
You can do it alone, with a friend, or as a group.

- Send a completed datasheet back to me afterwards (or share your eBird
checklist with "NYCAudubon").

Our count coincides with World Shorebirds Day, so we encourage you to also
sign up for their global count at
https://worldshorebirdsday.wordpress.com/2016/07/12/global-shorebird-counting-2016-registration/
and then share your eBird checklist with "WorldShorebirdsDay".

Every count counts!

Best,

Debra

Brooklyn, NY (11216) Forecast | Weather Underground

https://www.wunderground.com/q/zmw:11216.1.99999?sp=KNYNEWYO455


This stifling suffocating and miserable heat wave should break by midweek with predicted northwestern to North winds Wednesday into Thursday. This wind shift potentially brings forth migrating birds,perhaps a good wave about this time last year kicked up a flurry of warblers. See the link and the graph at the bottom of the ten day forecast.
For all of us heat wave weary birders, it can't start sooner..;-)

It appears though that a RED BREASTED NUTHATCH ( <~~ BirdTrax) didn't even wanted to wait,reported in Greenwood Cemetery this morning

Birds on the move.,.

Some earlybirds made their move today with a number of warblers reported in Prospect. Nothing of the numbers sort but indicative of the bigger migration to come for songbirds.

First thing I spotted early morning was an unexpected
surprise. By the dirt track leading up to Lookout Hill summit from Butterfly Meadow ,a female or juvenile type ROSE BREASTED GROSBEAK fed on Virginia Creeper berries.

Kathy Toomey had the better day. Birding mostly on Peninsula turf in later morning, she reported several WARBLER species.Prominent species was ten YELLOW WARBLERS, backed by AMERICAN REDSTART,NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH, BLACK &WHITE WARBLER and good bird LOUISIANA WATER THRUSH. Throw in SPOTTED SANDPIPER and EASTERN PHOEBE for good measure. Eni Falci helped me get some of these species,as I'm beset by eye allergies.

Eni by the way had a BLUE WINGED WARBLER,but I forget where she said. But I have to thank Kathy for getting me a target fall bird Louisiana Waterthrush. While I was alerted to one Kathy saw at Three Arches bridge,that LOWA disappeared we  re found it upstream the ravine creek about 100 feet south of the Little Rock Arch.The bird was a beaut!

Watch for Northwest winds whenever possible.Its sure to be some birds riding on it.

Meanwhile over in Greenwood Cemetery, Orrin Tilevitz reported a few birds.Those birds include NORTHERN WATER THRUSH 3  REDSTART and BLACK THROATED BLUE WARBLER.

Hi Peter-

Vin and I took advantage of a cooler morning and yesterdays cold front to walk the park. Highlights were Canada Warbler at Peninsula just after  Pink beach, and Blue-Winged Warbler in the stream area of the Ravine along with Yellow Warblers and Redstarts (Yellow). Also a Wood Thrush in the Lullwater. Absent were the Waterthrushs previous present on the Peninsula and at the Pools. Also 4 young male Woodducks at Pools and Spotted Sandpiper at the Island opposite Peninsula arbor along with a well hidden Great Blue Heron. Otherwise usual summer birds.

Cedar Waxings turf

This morning , a good number of CEDAR WAXWINGS --young and old took over Three Sisters Islands. I could tell there was a good number thru the heavy leaf foliage as leaves moved and birds flew thru the trees and canopy. Several of them alighted on branches in front of me, these handsome birds making summer a delightful experience this day.

A SPOTTED SANDPIPER walked the shoreline opposite these island, usual for the species seeking freshwater sites.A moment later , a DOUBLE CRESTED CORMORANT flew by.

Its an early time but warblers are on the move,at least getting antsy soon.
