Watching the migration forecast unfold last night I decided to spend the first hour of light on the top of Lookout Hill in Prospect Park.
On the bike ride in I could hear occasional chip notes, but it didn't sound very active. Once on top of the hill it was obvious there were some new arrivals. Groups of Waxwings and Goldfinches headed south and at 6:35 there were already two American Kestrels hunting over the Butterfly Meadow (one successfully).
As the sun started to hit the tops of the trees songbirds became visible.

Highlights included;

Philadelphia Vireo
Scarlet Tanager
Baltimore Oriole
Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Northern Waterthrush
Black and White Warbler
Tennessee Warbler
Common Yellowthroat
American Redstart
Northern Parula
Magnolia Warbler
Black-throated Green Warbler
Wilson's Warbler
Blackpoll Warbler

Good Birding,
