winter action on Brooklyn's industrial coast

While i was away upstate looking for owls with friends, a few reports came in of nice action at Bush Terminal pier park.This park is best known for its winter action given its safe harbor areas that attract gulls and ducks.

During foggy conditions,Joshua Malbin reported both white winged gulls. ICELAND followed a GLAUCOUS late Sunday morning.Later Daisy Paul tweets a sighting of CANVASBACK a terrific sighting for the park.

This morning the good gull continues though a mile southwest at Brooklyn army Terminal pier 4.Bobbi Manian and Peter Paul Ebird reported BLACKHEADED GULL on the pier.its possible its the same bird from Coney Island creek a week ago. Then again, maybe theres more.In any case, winter action at these sites are good reasons to visit them.

Interesting gull on Prospect Lake

Spotted by Joshua Malbin about 115 this afternoon, this report posted in Facebook North American Gulls group.  Possibly a dark extreme Iceland Gull or leaning towards Thayers but I will post comment after experts weigh in.

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10154511855319775&set=pcb.1274175395962011&type=3&theater

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10154511855564775&set=pcb.1274175395962011&type=3&theater

Update. One of the comments I've read is the gull could be the. Kumielen Iceland gull, a darker than usual form.

In any case immature gulls are tough,not one of my favorite pastimes. 😊

Quiet waterfowl

It sure is quiet time now in Prospect,and during my busy workdays I can only glimpse at obvious birds.

Along the lawn of south Lake, among the Canada Geese between Duck and Three Sisters islands,the two Snow Geese are residing. Looks like they are comfortable among likewise geese and will spend Winter here.

A good distance northwest at Upper Pool,I spotted a pair of Wood ducks. There's obviously more but I took for granted this assumption.

today  Jan 19  2 American Wigeon at West Island, Pied Billed Grebe at Duck Island

Prospect Lake fine mornin

Good offerings this morning on my late run around the LAKE.Considering the lake doesn't get alot of winter variety, i thought this morning had a good waterfowl run.

First the latest on the juvenile SNOW GEESE that's been hanging around. Both kids were spotted on the south shore just West of Duck Island .That particular spot is marked by a stone pentagonal platform. In front of the rare geese, a PIED BILLED GREBE dove.

With ducks i found among the usual,three species to note . Two pairs of HOODED MERGANSER and AMERICAN WIGEON were spotted, at Lake center and West Island respectively. Then the lingering RINGNECKED DUCK inside Three sisters Islands added to the variety. I got a text from Michele Dreger of a possible Greenwinged Teal later but it was not re found by her walk group.

Upland at the feeders for a change of scenery, the feeders were active. A hit and run RED BREASTED NUTHATCH kept a frenetic pace hitting those feeders; its friends kept a slower pace, the WHITE BREASTED NUTHATCH,TITMOUSE, BLACK CAPPED CHICKADEE, and a great looking RED BELLIED WOODPECKER male on the suet cage. A few RED WINGED BLACKBIRDS joined while 6 AMERICAN GOLDFINCH stuck to the thistle feeder.
