connecticut is its name,warbler is the bird

 Two reports came out today regarding CONNECTICUT WARBLER, one a continuing bird, the other in a not often reported locale.

The Greenwood Cemetery Dellwater Connecticut continues to be seen but very challenging to spot in dense foliage. The morning observer said he had a tough time seeing it, using foliage movement to follow it, then a brief look as it crossed a mausoleum steps.

Meanwhile the Brooklyn Botanic Garden gets a hurrah with its first Connecticut. Spotted by Kristin Costello, the general location was at the  north end of the lawn across from the Greenhouse. The BBG has undergone a capital landscape change from renovation making it conducive for birds  attracted to better habitat.Its good to see the new changes..

enjoy your weekend.

Thursday BBC walk

Led by Karen OHearn with help from Linda Ewing ,subbing for Tom Steohenson

Hi Peter,

Thursday's BBC walk was full of raptors!  Mid morning, as we walked onto the peninsula, a Merlin flew by.  When we reached the point, a Sharp-shinned and a Cooper's hawk were seen together above us.  A few minutes later, Al spotted 3 Broad-winged hawks that were kettling above the lake and slowly drifting southeast and out of view.  A minute later, an Osprey flew by and then a few minutes after that an American Kestrel flew by and landed in a nearby tree.  I guess you could say we were rapturous - all this occurring in a period of about 20 crazy minutes!   Oh, and one additional, notable sighting during this same time period - 4 Common Nighthawks over the lake.  

Other active areas were the vale, parts of center drive, and sw lakeside.  Our walk ended with an early Hermit Thrush (-:

And thanks to Linda E. for joining us and helping with some tricky IDs!

Best,
karen

Hi Peter,

we had another great walk yesterday, not quite as birdy as last week, but lots to see including a nice aerial battle of a Coopers Hawk being mobbed by American Crows, 2 Philly Vs and Purple Finch.  Also both BW and GW Teals!  Tom had found teh GW on a Linnaean walk on Sunday and one of hte participants was on my walk and she showed us where it was lurking (by the Turtle Cove overlook).  The hardcores really wanted to beat Dennis's warbler count of 20 from Sat but we admitted defeat at 18, consoling ourselves that 2 teals brought our count up to 20 in our hearts. :-)

A quick note

Dale Dyer reported an active spot at the Peninsula tip shelter area if warblers - cape mays included before 9 am.  It's not surprising as the peninsular behaves like a mini migrant trap when the surge occurs thru the morning and later early noon.

Also says Dale behind well drive containers lots of slope common yellowtheoats.

Peter,

Great day of fall birding in Prospect Park. Highlights were 20 warbler species including multiple Tennessee, Blackburnian, Cape May and Bay Breasted. One of my best days of fall Birding ever.

Best,

Dennis
