Florida Trip - Ospreys
Juvenile Red-tailed Hawk in Union Square

Scott's Oriole

A bird normally found in the Southwest has appeared in Union Square!  It appears to be a 1st year male.  If the I.D. is correct, it will be the first recorded sighting in New York State.  Needless to say, its discovery has created quite a stir among the greater New York birding community.

While I was there at lunch time, it was following in the path of a Sapsucker, drinking Holly Tree sap from the freshly drilled woodpecker holes.
