While leading my weekly tour
at Green-Wood Cemetery this
morning I spotted a pair of
phoebes hawking insects near
Central Ridge. These were my
first of the season and possibly
first for Brooklyn this year.
There were Mourning Cloak
butterflies around yesterday
and Spring Crocuses are
emerging. Pine Warblers
shouldn't be too far off. I guess
Spring has sprung � at least
until the snow storm later this
week ;-)

Also of note this morning were
two woodcocks. One was
under a stand of conifers near
Battle Hill, the other was
resting under a rhododendron
near the intersection of
Landscape and Oak Avenues.

Good birding,
