It's the same old as PAINTED BUNTING,BLACK HEADED GULL & ORANGE CROWNED WARBLER ringing in the new with appearances.And all are in their usual old spots-- as if nothing changes . PAINTED BUNTING at the rink green roof north end; BLACK HEADED GULL coming and going at the west shore Prospect Lake; ORANGE CROWNED WARBLER at Well Drive green shipping containers slope of Lookout hill.
In addition , lesser quality birds stuck around as well.The drake pair RING NECKED DUCKs at West Island; GRAY CATBIRD at the ORANGE CROWNED WARBLER spot. I got the latter and the gull as I'm not the type to run after everything-- crazily-- being resolved to be more gentle myself birding and enjoying the great outdoors. Listing isn't a big thing with me anymore. Besides I got out late after services .
But NYDay does have the anticipation of surprise. In midafternoon , above West Lookout Hill, Mike Yuan reported an adult BALD EAGLE flying over. Hey..that's new!
HNY folks.. 2016 is full of new possibilities.Enjoy each day.
