Hello,

I have hit a poor spell with the warblers but I am still seeing new birds. Although they have been in Central Park for weeks, I finally saw a black crowned night heron. I think that they favour low hanging branches until the water warms a bit. I did see a blue winged warbler near the Triplets Bridge and I heard a warbling vireo.
Today, I saw a belted kingfisher, over the Lake, and a male rose breasted grosbeak, at the Park's feeders.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

Hello all,

In the last few days, I definitely saw a Baltimore oriole, a northern water thrush, an American redstart, a black throated blue warbler and a scarlet tananger. Of those, I rate the male American redstart as especially appealing when it spreads its wings and its tail.
There were birds which others pointed out but I could not write that I had a good view of any of them.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

In the swing of the season

Hello all,

The warbler season is picking up, which means that I have been straining my neck and my skills at identifying birds. With some help, I have seen the following black throated green, magnolia, chestnut sided and Cape May warblers. I was also fortunated to see a Swainson' thrush, today. Since I also saw a hermit thrush and probably a wood thrush, I may have had a three thrsh day.

Delightful as always, Arthur! I just picked up most of these birds over the weekend, and it never gets old each year.

A few more

Hello,

On Wednesday, I had a good day: a veery, an ovenbird, and a worm eating warbler. Yesterday, i finally saw a swallows, a barn swallow over the Reservoir, but today I had a glimpse at indigo buntings, high up in the trees over Strawberry Field.

The warbler season is peaking, so Sunday may a good day, weather permitting.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur

the season contiues

Hello all,

I had a good look at a veery, last weekm as well as glimpse of a house wren.. Those indigo buntings are still around. A couple of days, ago, I saw a Wilson's warbler, but Maryland warblers, aka common yellow throats and American restarts are very common.

Today, I got a glimpse of cedar waxwings, flying above. After carefully looking at the west end of Turtle Pond, I found that the Eastern Kingbirds have returned to their location and will likely nest nearby.

Happy bird watching,
Arthur
