Cuckoo continues at Greenwood

Black-billed Cuckoo (Coccyzus erythropthalmus) (1)
- Reported Jul 13, 2024 07:21 by Nate L-S
- Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn, Kings, New York
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=40.6523083,-73.9904281&ll=40.6523083,-73.9904281
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/checklist/S186770953
- Comments: "Presumably the same bird that's been seen recently. In the black willow at the east end of Dell Water, perched most of the time, but occasionally making short hops and flying to nearby branches. Differentiated from a young YBCU since there were no visible spots on the undertail as well as a seemingly petite bill. Poor digi-binned photos to be attached."

Black-billed Cuckoo (Coccyzus erythropthalmus) (1)
- Reported Jul 12, 2024 14:01 by KZ F

- Comments: "*Continuing at Dell Water, took a while to locate but eventually found it moving through the big willow, gleaning insects. Lost it while re-angling but was able to track it for a while by its occasional low staccato vocalizations, and saw it fly west into the next large tree, where I watched it creep around sluggishly foraging on berries for over a half an hour. As it ascended into the treetops, I stayed with it by going up the path on the north side of Dell and looking straight out into the tree crown. It was at times dead still in the top of the tree for minutes on end. Cuckoo with a black bill, fairly blank face with a dark eye and pale eye ring, bright white underparts, unspotted soft-brown undertail, and rufous wing coverts. Vis lifer, following several heard-onlys."

- Comments: "Flagged—a difficult to detect migrant, and maybe getting toward the later side. As I was pishing for the Wilson's Warbler to come out for a photo, this guy popped out right above me. All hell underneath except for grey head and black bib and the tail feathers. Seen through bins at close range, but when I reached for my camera I only managed one terrible, dark, out-of-focus photo. Still, I think it's at least suggestive of everything I just said. It wasn't really singing so others should please send recordings to Jay Pitocchelli if they've got 'em."

Singing repeatedly on all sides of Lookout Hill, though heard most often (and, eventually, seen) just N of Butterfly Meadow, downhill and across the paved path. Recorded the song several times and only saw it once, but repeated, rising song distinctive (if a little like some Mourning Warbler variations—they're in the same genus), and a brief look showed its distinctive face pattern of yellow spectacles and black muttonchops."

Hi Peter-

A little slower despite the promising birdcast for the prior evening, but we had one of our largest groups ever - 17 attendees. 39 species today mostly sticking to Pier 1. 

Those signs that spring migration is winding down, female Blackpoll Warblers, fed in the locust trees on the Harbor Lawn along with a few males. The whole group go nice looks at a male Chestnut-sided Warbler over the Long pond, and all morning we were buzzed by several flocks of Cedar Waxwings circling over. One flock was over 30 birds. 

Will see everyone next week for the last outing of the season!

Mike

- Comments: "One of the first birds we saw upon arriving to the park. It was circling above us as we approached Binnen Bridge—not super low, but low enough to get my heart pumping before I even put bins up to my eyes. Its long, pointed wings seemed much more dramatic than that of a PEFA or other confusion species. I am in the process of learning how to use a new camera and I thought I was gonna lose the bird before I could figure out how to get it in focus, but when I ran out to the Nethermead for a better view of the sky it steadily circled overhead for a few minutes allowing for some great looks and decent photo opportunities before heading ESE. Great consolation for the surprising lack of birds at the park this evening. Lifer for both of us, allowing me (AT) to let out a huge sigh of relief, as I had seen a bird with extremely similar vibes hovering over the neighborhood while I was out running errands sans binoculars yesterday afternoon. After seeing this one today, I feel slightly more convinced it’s what I saw yesterday, but obviously nowhere near confident enough to report it."
