Two weeks have passed since my last visit to the Park.  And it is definitive, the Spring migration is over.  A hot late walk around the park was "so-so".   My best birds were the 2 species of orioles: Orchard (see photo below) & Baltimore.  I saw 1 nestling on the Hummingbird nest near the Lullwater Cove.  And a lonely Osprey flew over the Nethermead. Time to go North for more bird species (= Sullivan Co.).
