I'd never seen Green-Wood as birdy as it was today. I started around Battle Hill, and although the raptor flight didn't amount to much, save for an immature bald eagle, there were huge flocks of sparrows, finches, and warblers streaming into the cemetery and feeding all along the paths to the 20th Street entrance. I ran into Josh M. and we had a pine siskin call overhead, a Lincoln's, field, and numerous white-crowned sparrows. Later, the Dell Water was crackling: a kestrel, red-shouldered hawk, and sharp-shinned buzzed overhead while down below there were a pair of Tennessee warblers, Lincoln's and Swamp sparrows, purple finches, winter and house wrens, an indigo bunting, and more kinglets than one could count. The way they've let the Dell Water re-wild is bringing in the birds.
