A Common Redpoll continues for a third day in Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn. The bird has been associating with a flock of American Goldfinch and favors the area around the intersection of Dell and Oakwood Avenues. The cemetery closes at 5pm these days so please keep that in mind if making the trip. The birds spend a lot of time on the ground under Sweetgums and the CORE can take some time to find. While following the slow moving finch flock today I came across three American Woodcock, both species of nuthatch, European Goldfinch, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Chipping Sparrow and multiple singing Fox Sparrow. At roughly 2:45 an Osprey drifted SSE from the vicinity of Prospect Park.
