eBird Checklist - 15 Aug 2019 - Prospect Park - 41 species (+1 other taxa) Karen's list

Tiny trickle of Warblers in Prospect

It isn't alot but two warbler species we're reported on Lookout Hill today.

Karen and Kathy went birding and found a PRAIRIE WARBLER and AMERICAN REDSYART.
The wind isn't great yet but some birds will get a head start. Keep tuned to forecasts. My good bet that the next northwest wind will trigger a nice much bigger trickle. I'll if I remember to check will look at Bird cast

Update after seeing the checklist later the actual number Warblers seen was seven.

Dear Bird Club Member,

As some of you may know, in association with the Prospect Park Landscape Management department, a small group of dedicated BBC members have worked for several years maintaining Butterfly Meadow and other areas on Lookout Hill. Its grown from a weed-infested plot to a wonderful bird and butterfly habitat.

We could use two or three more volunteers for the upcoming season.  We meet every other Wednesday morning, from 9 a.m. until 11:30, from Sept-November, and then again from around April-June. The work consists of weeding, planting, fixing fences, etc. and is not usually too strenuous.  

We plan to start the fall season on Wednesday, September 11th so if you are interested in helping out, please contact me asap by replying to this email. You will need to be registered with the Prospect Park Volunteer Corps, if you are not already (this can be done online.)

Thank you!
Janet Zinn
Volunteer Leader, Lookout Hill Corps.
