It's a pretty normal sight to see bird chasing bird around the Forest Park waterhole. Usually, it's the likes of Yellow-rumped Warbler, while the other day some were continually blaming a Blue-winged for repeated aggression (I'm not sure how justified that was). But how about this? I didn't see what the chased bird was today, but the chaser stopped briefly in a tree about 15 feet away from me. It was a Kentucky Warbler.
I don't know about this radar business. Yea, there were some new birds around today. But enough to make an impression on the radar? Well I can tell this from the current radar. There's a nasty looking cluster of thunderstorms in northwest New Jersey. If they hold together, they could provide some replenishment to the rapidly diminishing water hole. The effect on bird movement tonight? We'll see.
