A dozen birders joined Michelle on this windy, chilly Sunday morning. We mainly birded around the lake and were rewarded with 9 species of ducks including a beautiful male Hooded Merganser, Buffleheads, Green winged teals, a Gadwall and an American Wigeon. Grebes and coots were also present.

A Blue headed vireo was among a nice assortment of sparrows on the southern Lefrak roof area.



Phoebes and Yellow-rumped warblers were plying the edges of the lake. 



(It was too much trouble to include the Blue-headed vireo in eBird list but it was close and low.)
