connecticut is its name,warbler is the bird

 Two reports came out today regarding CONNECTICUT WARBLER, one a continuing bird, the other in a not often reported locale.

The Greenwood Cemetery Dellwater Connecticut continues to be seen but very challenging to spot in dense foliage. The morning observer said he had a tough time seeing it, using foliage movement to follow it, then a brief look as it crossed a mausoleum steps.

Meanwhile the Brooklyn Botanic Garden gets a hurrah with its first Connecticut. Spotted by Kristin Costello, the general location was at the  north end of the lawn across from the Greenhouse. The BBG has undergone a capital landscape change from renovation making it conducive for birds  attracted to better habitat.Its good to see the new changes..

enjoy your weekend.

Thursday BBC walk

Led by Karen OHearn with help from Linda Ewing ,subbing for Tom Steohenson

Hi Peter,

Thursday's BBC walk was full of raptors!  Mid morning, as we walked onto the peninsula, a Merlin flew by.  When we reached the point, a Sharp-shinned and a Cooper's hawk were seen together above us.  A few minutes later, Al spotted 3 Broad-winged hawks that were kettling above the lake and slowly drifting southeast and out of view.  A minute later, an Osprey flew by and then a few minutes after that an American Kestrel flew by and landed in a nearby tree.  I guess you could say we were rapturous - all this occurring in a period of about 20 crazy minutes!   Oh, and one additional, notable sighting during this same time period - 4 Common Nighthawks over the lake.  

Other active areas were the vale, parts of center drive, and sw lakeside.  Our walk ended with an early Hermit Thrush (-:

And thanks to Linda E. for joining us and helping with some tricky IDs!

Best,
karen

Hi Peter,

we had another great walk yesterday, not quite as birdy as last week, but lots to see including a nice aerial battle of a Coopers Hawk being mobbed by American Crows, 2 Philly Vs and Purple Finch.  Also both BW and GW Teals!  Tom had found teh GW on a Linnaean walk on Sunday and one of hte participants was on my walk and she showed us where it was lurking (by the Turtle Cove overlook).  The hardcores really wanted to beat Dennis's warbler count of 20 from Sat but we admitted defeat at 18, consoling ourselves that 2 teals brought our count up to 20 in our hearts. :-)

A quick note

Dale Dyer reported an active spot at the Peninsula tip shelter area if warblers - cape mays included before 9 am.  It's not surprising as the peninsular behaves like a mini migrant trap when the surge occurs thru the morning and later early noon.

Also says Dale behind well drive containers lots of slope common yellowtheoats.

Hi Peter,
Great seeing you in the park today. I hope you found that Phila Vireo!

Well, if I were to say that warblers were dripping from trees and feeding from our hands I would be somewhat overstating the case, at least for some parts of the park...but it was a really birdy day.
The northern part of the park was somewhat quiet, but the further south we got the birdier it became.
We never were able to make it to the south side of the lake, which was no doubt even birdier!

We had 58 species including 18 species of warblers. 
Highlights included:
at least 4 Phila Vireos, including 3 up on lookout, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher in the sumac by the peninsula meadow (thanks to a tip from Doug G), Olive-sided Flycatcher, 18 species of warblers (did I say that before...) including Blue-winged, Cape May, lots of Northern Parula, a very cooperative Nashville, two Tennessees, and lots more.

Here's the list.

Best regards,
Tom

Brotherly Love and Golden days

It's a day of brotherly love and Golden days with each Prospect park and Greenwood Cemetery seeing a rare species :namely Philadelphia Vireo and Golden winged Warbler .

If anyone is familiar with the term " Brotherly Love" it's the moniker used for the city of Philadelphia. ( Sorry Philly for using it for a Brooklyn borrow.) After Doug G found a Philadelphia Vireo in the Peninsula sumac Grove, Tom Stephenson found I heard three! This trifecta was seen in the vicinity of Butterfly Meadow. I tried my luck at lunch time where Tom's group saw the sumac bird but darn the harsh glare!

Meanwhile it's golden at Greenwood Cemetery. The first report of golden winged Warbler reported by Rob Jett pinpointed the bird on Central Avenue near the Pierrepont crypt; hours later Shane B found another --  an  adult male-- at the  intersection of Cypress and Grape Avenues..if I see the Ebird report I'll forward.

Getting back to Prospect, there were other good birds. In the sumac Grove,Yellow bellied Flycatcher and Nashville warbler occupied the same spot.. Tom's BBC Walk also found Tennessee and Bluewinged warbler plus Olive Sided Flycatcher on Lookout Hill. He usually sends me a report which of course I'll post here.

Heading south

Good strategy to keep in mind  is thinking like a bird. Fall means ever southward and one good prospect location to check is the South shore of prospect lake end of day

I meant to bird this area after work but thought otherwise after a long tiring workday. Usually the best birding time is after 5 pm. By this time especially after  massed migration event birds by then are in the staging part of southern boundaries. But despite my neglect birding Kathy Toomey picked up the opportunity. At 506 she reported bird activity behind 3 Sisters islands. Among the good ones were these warblers: BLACKBURNIAN,TENNESSEE and PRAIRIE.

Through the day small pockets and single sightings was the norm. Running into birders I gain info of Nashville warbler in the Butterfly meadow, eye level look of Blackburnian warbler  at the Octagon on South shore and reading later MOURNING WARBLER at the north steps of the Vale Cashmere towards the Rose Garden.

Next good day is Saturday,  a real cold snap with an autumn feel and birds on the move.

Seen and photographed later by Tripper in the same area (along stairs between Vale & Rose Garden). Gray head that extended a bit onto its chest in a kind of open collar, white eye ring (to me it appeared unbroken, prominent), olive back, entirely yellow below. I called it Nashville based on eye ring, even though it lacked the white belly (between chest and coverts) I'd expect in a Nashville. Tripper shared his photo and it was without a doubt the same bird."

greenwood cemetery numbers today

 well  i did guess right for 85 but for the wrong park!

85 species in GWC with some cool birds.

 well...i was close...its actually more than my conservative guess of 85

Tuesdays big windy blast

AS we can always expect when the  fall north wind blows, we expect birds. Fall migration showed its might today as a fallout --as least in the words of Rob Jett over at Greenwood Cemetery--commenced in both Prospect Park and the Greenwood cemetery. See Bobbi's report in my previous post to get the big picture "dripping from trees". The highlights include CONNECTICUT WARBLERS, PHILADELPHIA VIREOS, and a host of warbler species in various locations. I will keep it brief and mention the species. On my personal experience, given i had to work, i was happy to see some cool warblers on my lunch hour, one warbler a fall favorite.

CONNECTICUT WARBLER appeared in both PP and GWC. The Prospect bird found by Dale Dyer, showed up within or along the edge of the Peninsula lakeshore marsh close to Well Drive. It was not found again after the initial appearance. Another Connecticut though popped up at Greenwood's Dellwater  observed by several or more birders.

The second rarity , PHILADELPHIA VIREO also paid visits to each PP and GWC. One appeared at Dellwater, sticking within a Tupelo tree; the other in Prospect was not revealed where.

In Greenwood, OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER,SOLITARY SANDPIPER ,MARSH WREN at Sylvan Water and at least 17 species warblers were reported according to a friend .

IN Prospect, a really great day. As Bobbi mentioned, birds were everywhere , dripping in various spots, warblers at Butterfly Meadow included a Tennessee; late WORM-EATING WARBLER at West Island, CAPE MAYs, BAYBREASTED and a terrific number of 41 NORTHERN PARULA.

On my lunch hour, i ventured to the Peninsula tip where the rustic shelter resides. I had just missed the big show of 20 warblers in and around the groundsel bush there  in front on the water edge,observed by the tuesday BBC walk led by Bobbi Manian. I did see there astounding looks of CAPE MAY WARBLERS,  and above a gorgeous BAY BREASTED WARBLER a fave of mind.; also in the area, YELLOW, PARULA, BLACKPOLL , and BLACK THROATED BLUE also appeared , In the stately pine tree above, several RED BREASTED NUTHATCHES were present.

i will include the checklist on the next post, no doubt im guessing 85 species today in Prospect.

Just one of those days i wished i call out sick but cant;;i need to retire....

Hi Peter,

Good seeing you today!  Today was one of those spectacular days you know you will remember forever.  The trees were truly dripping with birds we didn't know where to look first.  They were low down and active and easy to see.  While we didn't get any super-rare birds, we got eyes-full of 16 species of warblers.  5+ Cape May and Tennessee.  We had a Bay-breasted that we got to contrast with Blackpolls.   

Looks like winds will be from the west and south for the next few days so i hope they stick around for Thursday!

I am attaching a photo from walk participant Martha Weintraub.  i'm sure Janet got some good shots as well.
