Slower day

A slower day by accounts but some activity that included two notables.

The first notable is HOODED WARBLER seen on the slope between the Vale Cashmere and the Rose Garden , found by Paige Linden Brams. The Brooklyn BIrd Club group walk was able to get on the bird.

Also notable is YELLOW THROATED VIREO, an uncommon species found in migration in city parks. That bird was spotted in the Ravine along the path from Rocky Pass towards the Esdale Bridge, spotted on the BBC walk.

Here and there, warblers were seen, common species that no doubt were recorded by the Club. I await the report.

Early SWAINSON'S THRUSHES and Late SHARPSHINNED HAWK hit their stride today as well.
