Subject: Kings County: Greenwood Cemetery. Raptors and Prothonotary From: Sean Sime <email@example.com> Date: Wed, 22 Apr 2015 20:03:35 -0400 X-Message-Number: 9 I joined an impromptu hawk watch started by Shane Blodgett and Rob Jett from Greenwood Cemetery mid day today with decent results. They recorded a modest accipiter flight before I arrived. Once I began scanning we tallied the following; 3 Black Vulture (single group). 3 Broad-winged Hawk 1 Northern Harrier 3 Merlin 2 Kestrel 1 Red-tailed Hawk 3 Osprey Small groups of Double-crested Cormorants and Laughing Gulls were on the move as well. A stop around the Sylvan Water produced the previously reported Prothonotary Warbler as well as a nearly all white American Robin. Ebird list with photos can be viewed here. http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S23001190 Cheers, Sean Sime Brooklyn, NY
