Prospect pine warbler spring recs
Today's Pine Warbler I knew was early.The question was how early. Because we had no overwintered Prospect Pine Warbler,I have to assume was a migrating bird. During the winter there was an overwintered Pine at Drier Offerman park. Nevertheless, today's bird migrated whether from South USA or south Brooklyn.
Looking at Cornell Ebird for Prospect list,the earliest Pine was twenty days from now. March 29th 1968- 49 years ago! (Unreal)
So Ryan and Angie in the record books for Prospects earliest.
