Incoming warblers

Eni Falci came along awhile I was working at the Lily Pool section. She reported a few warblers this afternoon.

First a BLUEWINGED WARBLER was sighted at the west end of Boulder Bridge by some Hornbeams. Then a NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH in the bridle Path rain puddle at Ricks Place.
And at Binnen Run just south of the Nethermead Bridge, feeding at Cardinal Flowers , a YELLOW WARBLER appeared.

Gus Keri reported five hours ago a LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH at Binnen Bridge.

So, a little action in fits and starts.

Early fall start

Summer swelter gets to you and so getting out into Prospect after a workweek that left me exhausted seem like the best option

With no luck for an up close view of Least Bittern,I settled for a Lake attracted FORSTERS TERN.I caught sight of the term off the Peninsula thumb soon disappearing towards Lakeside rink about 1034 am. Just have to remember the Id tip " frosted are the FORSTERS wingtips.

I also hoped for that Louisiana waterthrush. It did show but for Ann Murray spotting it at the Ravine Ambergill Falls. I simply didn't have the energy to walk thhere. A RUDDY DUCK at west shore --in its red plumage- assuaged my lack of effort.

I knew those Ravens are smart

Cold front tonight

Though quite quite early for songbird movement, nevertheless for shorebirds, its about that time.

A cold front is moving thru tonight, fall's birds even in the height of summer, kicks off. ( Out in Long Island Hecksher state park area, photos on Facebook of a few Pectoral Sandpipers were taken by a friend of mine).

But perhaps a few warblers might get a head start...for a time now that's been extremely quiet.
