Hello Mono,

I wrote that it was a cultural trip.

Hello Delia,

You are quite welcome and thanks for the compliments.

Hello KC,

As long as the face frightens no one.

Happy bird watching,

Recently a British newspaper had to issue a correction when it illustrated a story about Paris with a photograph of the Las Vegas Eiffel Tower!

In the swing

Hello all,

Last Thursday and Sunday, I finally saw a barn swallow over the Reservoir. On both days, I saw a pair of gadwalls near the South Gatehouse. I have also been seeing cedar waxwings in the Park. I have been surprised to see a black capped chickadee, titmice, and white breasted nuthatches, in the last three days. All three are scarce by now.

Today was rather busy. I did see an Eastern kingbird. There are a plethora of magnolia warblers in the Park, but I have seen yellow warblers and more, but will save those for another post.

Let's catch up

Hello all,

In the last couple of days, I have spotted flycatchers. The only one that was identifiable was an olive sided flycatcher. I also had a glimpse of a yellow throated vireo.

Yesterday, I did see a Wilson's warbler. Today, I saw blackpoll warbler. Yesterday, I had glimpses of Tennessee and bay breasted warblers.

Not much

Hello all,

New York has had several days of rain which kept me inside. I also had a visit with a new dentist. I generally give dentists an alert that I have a dislocable jaw which only dislocates during dental work. If I open too wide it locks open. I think it upsets dentists more than it upsets me.

The only new warblers I have seen have been [b]Canada and Blackburnian warblers[b/]. However, I am fairly confident to write that I have seen alder flycatchers but they could have been willow flycatchers. I also saw an eastern wood pewee and a wood thrush.

A couple of visitors

Hello,

About two weeks ago, Birding Bob pointed to a a bird flying away. It was a mourning warbler and that marks the finale of the spring migration season. A few days later, I saw a horned grebe on the Reservoir. Then nothing of note until yesterday when I saw a male wood duck on Turtle Pond.

It is summer, so new sightings are uncommon.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

Not much new

Hello,

We have arrived at the summer doldrums. I did see a red bellied working on a nest hole. Unfortunately, too often these nests are seized by one of our resident alien terrorist species: the starling. I have seen northern flickers which have been known to nest in Central Park.

On Sunday, in the trees at the south end of the Reservoir, I saw a few cedar waxwings. As they are a gregarious species, there may have been more in the leaves.
Today, awhite breasted nuthatch landed in front of me. In Central Park,hey are plentiful in the winter but in the summer they seem to flee to the countryside.

Most Americans regard Canada geese as a nuisance. The Park Conservancy had hired a firm, the Geese Police, whose motto is, "Get the flock out!" It may have been failure in controlling their numbers. Of late, I have seen some goslings which seem to please some.

The Canada geese were photographed with an iPhone; other images by Louis Agassiz Fuertes.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

33c

Hello,

I have seen nothing new but a few birds have turned up which are not too frequent on my walks. Once again a male wood duck was on Turtle pond. At the same time a rough winged swallow filtered by. Only a couple of minutes before barn swallows were nearby over the Great Lawn. A trip to the Reservoir showed a familiar scene, a mallard with her ducklings.

The ducklings were photographed with an iPod, the other images are by Louis Agassiz Fuertes.

A flycatcher

Hello,

Warblers have been seen in Central Park, In fact, I have seen two but I am rather uncertain which ones. Probably a yellow warbler in autumnal colours and something else which flew past me. However, I did catch a glimpse of a crested flycatcher. That male wood duck is still on Turtle Pond, where I managed to photograph him with my iPod Touch. Summer is not the best season to show its colours but it is strikingly different from the usual mallards.

Otherwise, I get nice healthy walks, even I do not see anything new. The migration season is just starting up, so my weeklong absence to attend a family event will be of little consequence.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

warblers!

Hello,

In the last two weeks, I have seen what must be the early part of the autumnal migration. Last week, I was an ovenbird and a black and white warbler and male and female American redstarts. Yesterday, a blue gray gnatcatcher turned up at Strawberry Fields. Today, I got to see a northern waterthrush and a hermit thrush. There are still kingbirds and Baltimore orioles around. Others have been seeing more warblers than I.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

Hello KC,

I would think you saw an early ovenbird heading south.

Yesterday, I saw a warbling vireo, aCanada and blue winged warblers, and yellow bellied flycatcher. Today, I saw wood thrush.

Hello,

Others have been seeing dozens of warbler species in Central Park, but I must be going at the wrong time of the day.

However, last week i did see an Eastern wood pewee and yesterday I had a glimpse at what must have been an brown treecreeper.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

Something new

Hello,

I have been distracted from bird bird watching by rain, dental appointment, and social obligations. I am still seeing black and white warblers. I had thought that there was a shortage of black crowned night herons but they may be like the one I saw on the south shore of Turtle Pond, hiding under overhanging branches.

Last week, I saw a northern parula, a red eyed vireo and a chestnut sided warbler. Yesterday, a [b]ruby throated hummingbird[b], while today I spotted a[b]Swainson's thrush[/].

Is it autumn when the temperature is 30C?

Hello,

There are still warblers about: common yellowthroats, black and whites, and yellow warblers. Yesterday, when it was as warm as 30C, I saw a Carolina wren, as well as my first white throated sparrowand brown thrasher of the season . Last week I saw a ruby crowned kinglet and a great blue heron landing at Turtle Pond. The great blue is no stranger to Central Park but I had not seen one for quite a while. Today, I saw a phoebe in autumnal plumage.

The great blue was photographed with an iPod; other images by Louis Agassiz Fuertes.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

An autumnal 11C, this morning

Hello,

On Wednesday, I got to see my first yellow bellied sapsucker of the year, a black throated green and an ovenbird. Earlier in the week I saw a Cooper hawk, but on Thursday I was an osprey, formerly known as a fish hawk, at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge. I hope to go there next month, in beard of waterfowl.

Almost Autumnal

Hello all,

I have been out and about in mornings with temperatures as low as 12C. In the last few days, I have seen a couple of new birds. Today, I saw Nashville and black throated blue warblers as well as a glimpse at a northern flicker. Sunday, I saw a swamp sparrow, a and a hairy woodpecker.

A truly autumnal day

Hello,

Sunday's and today's walks brought some new birds. On Sunday, I saw my first white breasted nuthatches and Eastern towhee or rufous sided towhee. Today, I saw several song sparrows and downy woodpeckers.

The autumnal colouring of our trees has barely begun. One of the first trees to have autumnal colors is the sugar maple.

Paintings by Louis Agassiz Fuertes. The sugar maple was photographed with an iPod Touch.

Happy bird watching,

Hello KC,

I did not mention that I am still seeing phoebes, kinglets, hermit thrushes and yellow bellied sapsuckers.

Our B&W warblers seem to have fled south.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

An old coot sees more coots

Hello all,

Thursday, after a long interval, I saw an American coot, on the Reservoir, along with dozens of ruddy ducks, my first for the season. Earlier that day, I saw a red eyed vireo at the Maintenance Meadow.
Today, I saw the coot and few ruddy ducks on the Reservoir. Today's errands took me a further kilometer north, or Upstate, as I like to write. to the Pool, where I saw gadwalls, among the mallards. Changing season means some overlap of bird sightings.
Then I was off on an errand to find a part for my kitchen faucet. I ended up walking more than 8 km, in one morning, which I had not done for quite a while. After fixing the faucet, I took a good nap.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur
