BEGIN TAPE

Greetings. This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, November 1st
2019 at 9pm. The highlights of today's tape are BROWN PELICAN, ASH-THROATED
FLYCATCHER, AMERICAN AVOCET, MARBLED GODWIT, EURASIAN WIGEON, KING EIDER,
PARASITIC JAEGER, BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKE, YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT, LAPLAND
LONGSPUR, BLUE GROSBEAK and more.

A BROWN PELICAN present recently around the entrance to Montauk Harbor was
seen this week on Monday and again yesterday.

An ASH-THROATED FLYCATCHER subsequently identified from photographs visited
South Shore Park in Brooklyn last Monday but was not seen following its
identification. This park is off the Belt Parkway north of the
Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge.

Lingering AMERICAN AVOCETS featured 3 at Miller Field on Staten Island up
to Wednesday and 2 around the south end of the East Pond at Jamaica Bay
Wildlife Refuge at least to Monday with 2 also at the Oceanside Marine
Nature Study Area Saturday. A MARBLED GODWIT was around Big Egg Marsh south
of Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge Saturday and 2 were still reported today off
the Coast Guard Station at Jones Beach West End. Among the other locally
lingering shorebirds have been small numbers of LONG-BILLED DOWITCHERS.
Locations this week, besides Jamaica Bay's East Pond, have included the
Oceanside Marine Nature Study Area Saturday and Timber Point Golf Course
Tuesday.

The drake EURASIAN WIGEON was still being seen around the south end of
Jamaica Bay's East Pond early in the week and another spotted Monday on
Mill Pond in Sayville was still present yesterday. Mill Pond is just north
at Route 85 Montauk Highway. The female KING EIDER was seen again off
Orient Point on Monday.

The stormy conditions along the south shore of Long Island both Sunday and
Wednesday produced decent numbers of PARASITIC JAEGERS among the seabird
concentrations just offshore. At Riis Park Sunday there were at least 14
individuals, most passing by, but a few lingering to harass the feeding
gulls and terns and Wednesday added at least 5 more while Sunday also found
a couple off Staten Island and 8 counted from Robert Moses State Park. On
Sunday the activity included many NORTHERN GANNETS with 750 estimated off
Moses Park and both Riis and Moses featured sightings of an immature
BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKE plus some ROYAL TERNS. Moses also adding a CASPIAN
TERN.

Other later non-passerines this week included COMMON GALLINULE, LESSER
BLACK-BACKED GULL, LITTLE BLUE and TRICOLORED HERONS and YELLOW-CROWNED
NIGHT-HERON.

A YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT was found in Central Park's north end today while a
LAPLAND LONGSPUR was identified last Saturday at Miller Field. A BLUE
GROSBEAK was present at Brooklyn's Green-wood Cemetery last weekend.
Several sightings of VESPER SPARROW this week peaked with a dozen Monday at
Westchester's Croton Point Park with 1 or 2 at various sites including
Governors Island and Randall's Island, Floyd Bennett Field and the Salt
Marsh Nature Center, Jones Beach and other locations. A presumably
distressed SALTMARSH SPARROW was still in Manhattan's Union Square Park
today. Along with the occasional ORANGE-CROWNED other of the more unusual
warbler species seen this week included OVENBIRD, NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH,
BLACK-AND-WHITE, TENNESSEE, NASHVILLE, a MOURNING in Union Square Park
Saturday and Sunday, AMERICAN REDSTART, NORTHERN PARULA, MAGNOLIA, YELLOW,
BLACKPOLL, BLACK-THROATED BLUE, PRAIRIE, BLACK- THROATED GREEN and WILSON'S.
