Hello,

Yes, KC, we have had quite a bit of rain, this summer. Last night another 1.7 cm came down, taking us to more than 20 cm, so far this month. At least, our reservoirs are not lacking for water.

Hello DD, if I may, I thank you for your kind words. The illustrations do not come from a field guide but from Birds of New York by Elon Eaton, published more than a century ago. The illustrations were painted by Louis Agassiz Fuertes, a famous academic ornithological illustrator. He was employed by Cornell University on expeditions long before colour or action photography was available. Cornell University has an archive of his work. I may have used illustrations of woodpeckers from another work of his.

Yesterday, I was hurried trying to get to that meeting, which was both important and interesting, on time. I am adding an Agassiz Fuertes illustration of belted kingfishers, one of which I saw today. Monday was only the third time I have seen a kingfisher.urrs are much larger and less colorurful than the Eurasian ones. I also managed to see a worm eating warbler and a northern mockingbird, today. I usually the mockingbirds in the colder months, along quiet residential streets.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

Summer continues

Hello all,

New York summer, with high humidity and temperatures of 32ș and 33șC, this week. Today promises a little cooler weather.

In my last posting, I neglected to mention seeing an American redstart.
Yesterday, I heard a warbling vireo and I had a good look at an Eastern wood pewee.

Strangely, at least on of those female belted kingfishers has stayed near Turtle Pond for about two weeks. I saw it yesterday. This is curious because Central Park has seen the belted kingfisher only a few times in the previous fifteen years.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

humid weather

Hello,

We have had some warm and humid weather which has been caused, in part, by Hurricane Florence. Today, we had a foggy morning. I should not complain because Florence will deliver high winds, torrential rains and flooding to the Carolinas. At least, it has been downgraded from a force 5 hurricane.

Yesterday, I managed to see a black throated blue warbler, a ruby throated hummingbird and a common yellowthroat. I also saw an American redstart.

Today, I saw nothing new but I another American redstart, a black and white warbler and I saw belted kingfishers over Turtle pond, perhaps a male. This means that we have had three weeks of kingfishers which is very unusual.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

Two days before autumn

Hello all,

Personal commitments kept me home. I have written that the weather has been humid. Well, one of the doors in my flat has swollen so much it is hard to shut. However, I suspect that everything will dry soon enough.

Today, I thought I saw a thrush in Strawberry Fields. After I had my glass on it, I identified it as a winter wren. In the same field of view was a magnolia warbler, which was delightful. Later in the day, I did see a wood thrush, Once again, I saw a belted kingfisher at Turtle Pond. That means I have been seeing them for four weeks, which is rather unusual. As I started seeing females and now see a male, there must have been some turnover.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur Pinewood

Good to hear you are still seeing the Kingfishers Arthur and I had a Magnolia Warbler pop in a couple of weeks ago and was delighted.

Hello,

I have been ensnared in domestic responsibilities. About a week ago, I was at the Gill, as it emptied Azalea Pond when I saw a thrush. Then I noticed stripes on the chest rather than spots which meant it was a waterthrush, which disappeared so quickly, I could not identify it. I did manage to see a house wren and my only brown creeper of the season.

Today, I saw a northern waterthrush at Triplets Bridge. I also saw another white breasted nuthatch, as well as a ruby crowned kinglet and a blackpoll warbler at Strawberry Fields.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

Hello all,

I am still seeing black and white warblers. Yesterday, I saw a northern parula, at the shore of the Lake's Upper Lobe. At the Maintenance Meadow, a brown thrasher, and another BFer pointed out a few northern shovel[l]ers on Turtle Pond. I think that the shovellers may be considered early so it would be now surprise that I did see any in male plumage. I did see a bird with two wing bars. It might have been a white eyed vireo but it was a fleeting glimpse.

Autumn has arrived, according to the calendar but he weather is not particularly autumnal. Few leaves have changed colour but the sugar maples have some bright leaves near the crowns.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

Autumnal birds

Hello,

I had four good autumnal birds, yesterday and today. My first white throated sparrow turned up, yesterday. Today, i saw my first Eastern Towhee, male yellow bellied sapsucker and tufted titmice of the season. However, my first birds of the day were a female scarlet tanager, followed by a merlin, aloft.

Earlier this week, I saw a great blue heron flying over Central Park.

All images by Louis Agassiz-Fuertes. The yellow bellied sapsucker was from Woodpeckers, by Fannie Hardy Eckstrom, 1901, the others from Birds of New York

Happy bird watching,

Hello KC and others,

The week got better. Today, I stepped onto Strawberry Fields and saw quite a few species: many hermit thrushes, tufted titmice, an Eastern towhee, white breasted nuthatches, a blue headed vireo, black throated blue warbler, field sparrow, a chipping sparrow and a palm warbler. Later, I saw a yellow rumped or myrtle warbler, four raptors: Red tailed hawk, American Kestrel, a bald eagle, high aloft, and a Cooper hawk, as well as grackles and blue jays.
The best bird of the day was a Wilson's snipe, a life bird, sitting on the grass near a baseball field's backstop. I was directed to the snipe by word of mouth. I arrived at the spot at the same time as Dr. Robert de Candido, aka Birding Bob, arrived with a group, one of whom located the bird. Someone else posted it on the web and the crowd started arriving. It was curious that the snipe was on open ground, when it was around 45m from Turtle Pond.

I decided to use my old 8x30 Zeiss Dialyt BGTP, which was up to the day's tasks.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

Ooooh!!! Very well done on getting your new Lifer Arthur.

And it's great to know that there were so many people around who were keen to see it too.

Autumnal birds

Hello all,

Today was a there woodpecker day: more yellow bellied sapsuckers, red bellied woodpeckers, and a northern flicker. Additionally today, I saw red breasted nuthatch, a golden crowned kinglet and a Swainson's thrush., as well as hermit thrushes. Yesterday, I saw my first black capped chickadee of the season.

On Monday, I saw chimney swifts, high overhead.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

Hello KC,

Yes, it was a welcome good day, as I had a dry spell.

On Thursday, I was out and I saw golden crowned kinglets, a song sparrow, , a northern mockingbird, which was pointed out by Birding Bob leading some second graders. Then I walked to the Reservoir, where I saw ruddy ducks, in non-breeding plumage, and two female American black ducks. I was still seeing palm warblers.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

Very encouraging to read this, there seem to be a good lot of species around at the moment.
We're going over to NYC next Tuesday to stay with daughter and family in Manhattan and I intend to join the bird walk next Friday.
I did it last December and it was a bit sparse for species. They have a place on the edge of the Catskills but I do find that a bit sparse for species although I did get a very nice photo of a hummingbird earlier this year.
What are the colours like in Central Park right now?

Hello Footman,

I cannot predict the autumnal colours. We had a wet summer and a warm early autumn so it is not an early season for autumnal foliage. To the north and to the west the foliage may have already begun.

I attach two photos, taken today: a sugar maple tree and a leaf on the ground.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur :h:

LOL! The one on the right matches my fallen leaves so far.

We finally got a cold front come in last night so let's see if that changes things.

More birds of the season

Hello all,

First of all those male northern shovellers are showing their almost full winter plumage. As I usually noted their presence in early November, I suspect that I had overlooked them before they reached full colourful plumage.

I am still seeing palm and myrtle warblers, along with white throated sparrows, hermit thrushes, eastern towhees, red bellied woodpeckers, surprisingly only a few downy woodpeckers, red bellied woodpeckers, song sparrows, red tailed hawks, aloft and numerous tufted titmice and white throated sparrows. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of seeing a white breasted nuthatch go down a tree and a brown creeper go up a tree.


Today, I finally saw a junco and a purple finch, as well as flock of cedar waxwings in a hackberry tree. Cedar waxwings are rather gregarious but this flock crowded the upper branches of the tree.

I attach a photograph of the Lake, showing some more autumnal colours. If you look for similar photographs from previous years, like post #502, you might see more construction of luxury flats.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

I am still seeing palm and myrtle warblers, along with white throated sparrows, hermit thrushes, eastern towhees, red bellied woodpeckers, surprisingly only a few downy woodpeckers, red bellied woodpeckers, song sparrows, red tailed hawks, aloft and numerous tufted titmice and white throated sparrows. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of seeing a white breasted nuthatch go down a tree and a brown creeper go up a tree.
I'm seeing pretty much the same groups of birds as you Arthur except for the White-breasted Nuthatch.
