Subject: [Brooklyn-Bridge-Park-Bird-Walks] Bird List & Photos from today!

Thanks to all who joined the walk this morning!

I posted a few photos from the walk here.

We spotted 19 bird species, and one coyote cardboard cutout (goose deterrent) that had duped me earlier in the morning.

Highlights included Bufflehead, Red-breasted Merganser, and the star of the show...a juvenile male Common Goldeneye! Happy to hear this was a "lifer" for many of you. Full bird list below.

See you next time!
