Subject: possible Western Tanager today in Prospect Park?
Hello, Peter - We've not met, but I do follow your Prospect Park Bird Sightings blog.
I mostly bird in Central Park but sometimes in Prospect. This morning around 10:30 am I was walking on the path that runs south from Terrace Bridge right next to the lake (where you can look across the water to the bench area on the east side of the Peninsula) and I saw what I first thought (or assumed) was a female Orchard Oriole, and was able to get a few not-so-great photos (attached). Looking at them later, though, I realize the bird looks much more like a (male) Western Tanager, which I thought seemed pretty improbable for this area and this time of year. Yet the yellow upper wingbar and beak shape and color are consistent with this (and not with anything else that I could find). I wondered if you had any thoughts as to ID. Thanks. Ken Pearlman
