Some fun birds while hanging around to see if the Eastern Bluebirds would reappear (which they didn't). A Blue-headed Vireo, two Palm Warblers, a House Wren and a Brown Creeper.
Many birding guides for New York divide the fall migration into two parts, early and late fall. Late fall seems to be upon us, as the counties to the north and west of us had frosts and snow this weekend.
Warblers and early migrants are giving way to various sparrows, thrushes, woodpeckers, wrens and kinglets. Its a fun time to be in the park, enjoying the birds and watching the trees change color.
Fall is also a time to watch Pale Male and Lola on the Beresford Apartments. They're regulars in the middle to late afternoons.
It's starting to feel like fall and we're definetly in the later part of the fall migration. I didn't take many pictures this weekend, but rather enjoyed the new arrivals that were in the park.
I did take a few snapshots. Pale Male and Lola, an immature Great Blue Heron, a pair of Pied-billed Grebes, a 1st Winter female Magnolia Warber (note the unique white-banded tail pattern and pale gray neckband) and a male Rose-breasted Grosbeak.
