My blog is not just confined to just birds. Anything of the natural kind is worthy news. And today was an astounding find on the Tennis House grounds found by my supervisor Mary. It's a moth I have never seen and hoped for for many years : a Polyphemus Moth. It's a huge moth and quite a grand sight.
See the photos I took and many thanks to Mary for spotting it , a Prospect ultra rarity.
Prospect Park rules!
Hi Peter (and the group...)As promised, here's the list of what we saw today.Although it was cold enough for penguins to go flying by, we did survive and eventually found some birds that weren't frozen to death.Highlights for the group were Prairie Warbler on the peninsula, Worm-eating Warbler by the sumacs near peninsula meadow, Yellow-throated Vireo on center drive and also in the sumacs, several really beautiful Blue-headed Vireos, and more.54 species and 7 species of warblers (or 9 if we can count those from our extended family...)Jennifer found a Prothonotary near the Quaker Cemetery on her way out, and Radka found an Ovenbird on her way out. So I don't know if we get to add those or not.We also ran into a National Audubon group led by Martha Harbison. But don't worry, we scared all of the birds so they wouldn't see any....Best regards,Tom
