Subject: [nysbirds-l] American Pipits at Floyd Bennett field
In the past few days, these birds were reported in the Cricket field but today this field was empy on two visits, 3 hours apart, due to the presence of raptors (Harrier, Kestrel, Cooper's and Red-tailed Hawk). The grass here is very short and doesn't provide much protection.
But while checking the field in front of the Aviator Center that has tall grass, I flushed a flock of 5 pipits that flew toward the golf course on the other side of Flatbush Ave across from the cricket field.
I followed them and found out that the golf course is fenced in and I couldn't get in.
I went back to the field in front of the Aviator center and I flushed another flock of 11 pipits. But this time, they didn't fly away. They stayed in the same field and I was able to get photos and videos.
Here is a video of few of them:
Good luck finding them if you go there
