quality birds in our three local greenspaces

Some good birds to report in our three local green spaces : Prospect , Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Greenwood Cemetery.

Topping the good list, a rare LARK SPARROW was found by Bobbi Manian at Greenwood's Sylvan Water.

Over at Prospect Park on the Thursday BBC walk , the last for the season, Tom Stephenson tweeted WHITE CROWNED & PURPLE FINCH at Lamppost 249 or the Well drive picnic tables.also noted , a drake BLUE WINGED TEAL in the Lullwater by the group.

And lastly farther east in the Botanic Garden, Chris Elliot reported RUSTY BLACKBIRD in the native flora section , in the kettle pond.

PIED BILLED GREBE made its appearance in Prospect Lake today according to Karen OHearn

It gets better usually thru the rest of the month into November; so still good boiding to go.
