Only migrant was a single American redstart on the Central Ridge.  But I did find a couple of cooperative dragonflies, a blue dasher and an eastern amberwing.

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.

Hummingbird BBG

At this Cardinal flower stand along the Brooklyn Botanic garden watercourse North end I've been watching a Ruby throated hummingbird bird make quick visits.   Thx to my sister spotting it.
