Hello again,

  We desperately need volunteers for the coming Saturday, Sept. 29th, at the Return-a-Gift pond planted areas. Please don't let the Mugwort, Oriental Bittersweet and Porcelain Berry overwhelm all of your good work. We have a weeding method where you can concentrate on one species of the invaders at a time. 

We can meet at the small parking lot at the main entrance to Floyd Bennett Field at 9:00 AM. Tools and gloves will be supplied, If you only work for the morning, that will be fine. We need any help you can give. Thank you.

Best regards, Ron

Hi Peter,

We experienced a major change of the walk today....weather....!  Good weather. And good bird activity. We had 62 species including 16 warbler species.
Highlights included 2 Tennessee Warblers, Blackburnian, Blackpoll, lots of Parulas, Pine, Palm, Least and Acadian Flycatchers (modified ID after looking at photos; we thought maybe it was a yellow-bellied but was Acadian...), a stunning Blue-headed Vireo, 2 falcon species: American Kestrel and Merlin, Osprey, both Cooper's and Sharp-shinned Hawks, and the remaining juvenal Great Cormorant.

Here's the list.
