Monday was I believe January 120, 2018, Tuesday was spring for a day and today summer. But for me this morning was the annual reaffirmation of something (not sure what), like the swallows of Capistrano, today the first chimney swifts of the season appeared at the Ossining Train Station (about 8 this am). Maybe just reaffirms that I’m still working and commuting. A brief half hour walk in Croton Point Park beforehand had a few migrants, catbirds, Baltimore oriole (2), rose breasted grosbeak, hermit thrush, and for warblers (yellow, yellow rumped, common yellowthroat, black + white, American redstart and a nice male chestnut sided). Flyover GB heron and great egret and a parachute with what appeared to be a drone came over landfill and headed over The Hudson.
