At last! A walk down Old Sleepy Hollow Trail revealed a massive invasion of Rockefeller's typical migratory and nesting species over the past couple of days. Among the highlights were a slew of warblers, most singing and many at eye level: Black-throated Blue, Black-throated Green, Northern Parula, Yellow, Blue-winged, and Myrtle, Common Yellowthroat, American Redstart, and a Waterthrush (probably Louisiana). Also: Baltimore and Orchard Orioles, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Warbling Vireo, Veery, Wood Thrush, and a whole flock of Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, at least six males (including one fascinating immature in transition plumage) in one loose group, tussling, singing, "tinking", and challenging us invaders. Lovely.
