Subject: [nysbirds-l] Black-necked Stilt, Montezuma NWR
A BLACK-NECKED STILT found earlier today was still present on the
drawn-down Main Pool of Montezuma NWR this evening. Found near the south
end of the pool from the tower/beginning of Wildlife Drive area, the bird
had moved to the distant flats on the north side of the pool, seen looking
west from the spillway or looking east from the north end of the Thruway
Pools (beginning of last stretch of drive). Many hundreds of Dunlin and
peeps were also present, along with White-rumped Sandpiper, Black-bellied
Plover, and reportedly a Wilson's Phalarope earlier in the day.

The Osprey breeding has been terminated (eggs destroyed), so the barriers on the path have come down and one can walk around the pond. Ospreys are still perching on the platform and surrounding perches.
Clapper Rails are very active calling in the marsh but stayed mostly hidden. Seaside Sparrows were also actively calling as were a Saltmarsh Sparrow. A Marsh Wren sang along the path by the west side of the pond while a Clapper Rail and Seaside Sparrow were calling just beyond in the marsh. All these marsh birds require patience to see.
A Turkey Vulture flew over the marsh early in the morning heading NE.

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] Black-bellied Whistling Ducks - Cow Meadow - Yes
The Whistling Ducks were still present when I arrived at 8:20 tonight; however, shortly thereafter, they picked up and flew low over the marinas and residential area immediately to the west.

For those looking to chase the birds early tomorrow, I think it is still worth visiting Cow Meadow. After the ducks initially flew off the west, they returned on two separate occasions over the next several minutes (flying in from the west, circling low over the pond and adjacent field, and then returning back west). Given this behavior, I think it is reasonable to think that they might have subsequently returned in the twilight hours to the Cow Meadow ponds.

Good luck to those who go,

They are near the east end of the pond, resting near the edge. Please be
cautious in approaching the pond as there is not much room and they could
easily be flushed.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Manhattan, NYC 5/18-19-20 (incl. Y.-br. Chat, Chuck-wills-widow, Philly Vireo)
The two BLACK-NECKED STILTS found & photographed at Tonawanda Wildlife Management Area in Geneseo, NY (Genesee County) on May 20th are certainly notable. One of the same species was found & also was photographed at Baie-du-Febvre, on Lac Saint-Pierre, Quebec (Canada) on May 18th, & was also seen there to May 19th. This appears to be the most-northerly sighting in eastern Canada (east of Alberta) for the year thus far. Additionally, at Sandy Hook, New Jersey on May 20th, Nerses Kazanjian & Jason Denesevich found (& many more observers saw) two Black-necked Stilts.

In light of the Mississippi Kite reported Monday from Brooklyn (Kings County), NY, it is worth mentioning that same species (and rather obviously not the same individual) was also observed flying past the Braddock Bay hawk-watch (near Rochester, NY) on the same day, May 20th, where the hawk counter & observers also recorded 4 Black Vultures, & a total flight-watch count of 2,160 birds, of which 1,300 were Broad-winged Hawks. There also were 128 Bald Eagles in the day’s count there. The Derby Hill hawk-watch in Mexico, NY saw a flight of 3,231 vultures and birds of prey, of which 2,787 were Broad-winged Hawks - all also on May 20th.

And in light of the Burrowing Owl sighting from the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge area / Big Egg Marsh in New York City on Thursday, May 16th, it’s worth noting the one that provided the province of Quebec a first provincial record on May 11th, a “one-day wonder” at the location in Abitibi, Quebec (Canada).

---
Excellent migration overnight for Friday, Saturday & Sunday nights, with a lot of flyover well past N.Y. City (esp. on Friday night), and more ‘drop-ins’ for at least Manhattan on Sunday, 5/19. Many landbird migrant species have made it as far as the U.S.-Canada border & some well beyond by now, & this includes some of the more northerly-breeding, and later-to-migrate species.

Manhattan, N.Y. City -
Saturday, Sunday, & Monday, 18-19-20 May, 2019:

Saturday’s female Chuck-wills-widow in the Central Park Ramble, reported near the Gill early on by Will Papp was eventually seen by well over 200 observers throughout the day. Sadly on the day prior, an E. Whip-poor-will was found at a downtown Manhattan location, possibly injured due to building collision; I believe that that bird was brought to a local rehabber for observation.

A Yellow-breasted CHAT was seen at the western edge of the Central Park Ramble on Saturday, 5/18, first-of year for that park, with many observers.

A PHILADELPHIA Vireo was seen well by at least 1 dozen observers in the Central Park Ramble on Sunday, 5/19. An intriguing report for a (non-vocal?) Bicknell’s Thrush came from several observers, at the edge of the Central Park Ramble on Sunday - it is within the time-frame of the species arrival & passage thru the region. This also can be a tough ID to make from a non-vocal bird on passage, as some Gray-cheeked Thrushes may appear to resemble the Bicknell’s.

Mourning Warblers - an (expected) increase in sightings for the warm weekend; what may have been the same individual male was found in a wooded area immediately south of Fort Tryon Park’s formal south entrance on Saturday, 5/19, & a male again seen there, by more observers, on Sunday, 5/20. There have been (so far) modest numbers of the species reported from Manhattan this spring. By now, some have been found on breeding territories as far north as the province of Quebec (Canada) yet this species passage may be expected to continue into June, even locally in N.Y. City, as it is generally one of the latest of New York’s spring songbird migrants to complete the northbound passage. Easiest to detect are singing males, while many females (& of course, some males as well) will pass undiscovered on migration.

A Yellow-throated Warbler was reported in the Central Park Ramble on Saturday with multiple observers. Warblers showing further increase over this past weekend included Bay-breasted, Tennessee, Blackpoll, & American Redstart, as well as good numbers of many other species. Unfortunately for those not able to arrive on the (one) day of it’s discovery, the Swainson’s Warbler of last Thursday, 5/16 turned out a “one-day wonder” when it appeared in the Central Park Ramble although with effort, many were able to view, and certainly to hear, this southern-affinity NY-state rarity. Despite efforts no one succeeded in re-finding this bird on the morning-after or any days following its May 16th appearance.

Summer Tanagers - a 1st-spring male and a female were seen in Central Park on Sunday, 5/19; many Scarlet Tanagers also appeared to arrive on the same morning (i.e., Saturday night). A Blue Grosbeak was seen Sunday (5/19) in the Central Park Ramble.

A single Bufflehead was on the Central Park reservoir thru at least Saturday, 5/18. A somewhat ‘late' Ruby-crowned Kinglet was separately the same day reported at the Clinton Community Garden on W. 48th St. in mid-Manhattan, by D. Mullins.

There are ongoing sightings of Purple Finches, and Red-breasted Nuthatches, and Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers from various locations in Manhattan thru at least Monday, 5/20. Only the sapsuckers might be assigned a “late” status; these are, or appear all to be long-lingering individual sapsuckers per each location found past mid-May. In some of these locations, the total area is small enough, and enough observers are regular enough, to give an accounting of the status of individual sapsuckers - it would be interesting to see if some (any) remain to summer, as non-breeding birds. An American Woodcock in the Central Park Ramble was still present there to at least Sunday, 5/19, quite late for a Manhattan spring sighting of the species.

There were great numbers of 2 species of migrants in particular on Monday, 5/20 - and each can be somewhat indicative here for the winding-down phase of songbird migration for Manhattan - and perhaps the larger surrounding area - Blackpoll Warbler, which were seen in the low hundreds (for all of Manhattan, & esp. in the northern half of the island including the north end of Central Park) for the day, & Cedar Waxwing, which were seen by some of us in numbers well into the hundreds, with likely many many hundreds, if not 1,000++, passing thru over the course of the day. That stated, there will of course be a lot more migration to come, but peak days for land birds may have passed at least for N.Y. City by now, on the recent switch in the weather & wind patterns in particular, as well as simply the date with lengthening photo-period, & with other factors playing in.

--
Among rarer dragonflies for Manhattan, a Painted Skimmer was well-photographed in the Conservatory Gardens of Central Park on Sunday, 5/19 by Mike Freeman. This species might be having a good spring regionally and it has been seen elsewhere in & around the area. A fair variety of dragonfly species have been arriving or emerging with the burst of very warm weather. The same is so of butterflies, and at least 16 species of butterfly have been found & photographed in Manhattan so far this spring, perhaps more by now. There also have been signs that some additional species of butterfly, which are far more common in the south are poised to show more often in this area, at least into the N.Y. City area & perhaps farther north. One to keep an eye out for is American Snout (especially if there are any Hackberry [Celtis] trees nearby), and another is Gray Hairstreak.

"Once upon a time, when women were birds, there was the simple understanding that to sing at dawn and to sing at dusk was to heal the world through joy. The birds still remember what we have forgotten, that the world is meant to be celebrated.” - Terry Tempest Williams (contemporary activist, and author of many books)

good birding,

I stopped by Forest Lawn after a rough day at work!

Birds seen included:

2 Mourning Warblers, 1 Canada Warbler, 1 Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, 1
Gray-cheeked Thrush and 1 Swainson's Thrush.

I believe Kevin Rybczynski and several others also caught up with these
birds earlier in the day. There were few birders and photographers out
today - while quantity was lacking compared to the past couple of weeks,
the birds present were rather exciting.

A list of birds reported can be seen here:

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Great Vly WMA King Rail - no & extralimital Yellow Rail
Went to look for the King Rail that was reported in Great Vly WMA in Saugerties, Ulster Co., but after two hours there not a sound from it.  Did have other nice birds though and a Spotted Turtle.  If anybody is interested the extralimital Yellow Rail in Old Saybrook, CT, is still there.  Might be one of the few times you can get a fairly easy Yellow Rail around here if at all.  I went for it the other day and ended up with three species of rail!  Nice.  If anyone needs more info let me know.

While doing a sky watch at Caesar’s Bay in Brooklyn I had an adult Mississippi Kite past east of me headed NNW. Bird was picked up by observers in Greenwood Cemetery as well as it passed SW of them still headed toward the river. Was hoping for Swallow-tailed but only my second in the county so I’ll take it. ;)

Subject: RE:[nysbirds-l] westward spring migration of White-winged Scoters
Around 6:00 pm this evening, while watching an impressive gathering of shorebirds on the Cupsogue flats, Suffolk Co., I saw something I've thought about for many years but never seen before. Included below is a thread on the westward spring migration of several species of ocean-wintering waterfowl; we observers on the outer beach see this sort of thing quite often. But sharp observers such as Dick Ferren and Tom Burke, one or two geographic layers up in southwestern RI, CT, and Westchester Co., have sometimes seen these birds actually heading north overland, like Brant.

This evening at Cupsogue, I saw a distant flock over the ocean to the east that seemed too high to be cormorants. Putting the scope on them, I saw that most were White-winged Scoters, along with a contingent of dark-winged scoters. Tracking them, they turned north and crossed the barrier beach over the monstrous mansions in Westhampton Beach, at which point the non-White-wings peeled off and returned to the ocean. The 35 or so White-winged Scoters pressed north, then turned to the northwest and rose higher. An amazing thing to see.

Here's a phone-scoped shot of the flock passing from se to nw over Moriches Bay:

Tom Burke tells me that Brant were moving heavily up the Hudson River tonight too, as expected on such a fine evening.

Hi Peter and all,

It's great to see more data concerning last winter's remarkable southward flight of Razorbills and its aftermath.

Regarding the westward spring migration of White-winged Scoters (and also of Red-necked Grebes and Oldsquaws), this is a curious and incompletely understood phenomenon, but it was discerned by the old time gunners during the late 19th Century. See p. 285 here:

http://sora.unm.edu/sites/default/files/journals/auk/v008n03/p0279-p0290.pdf

More recently Dick Ferren and others have logged many days of spring seawatches documenting these flights, so this is a good reminder for us to record flight direction.

The very cooperative bird was present at its “new” spot as described previously at least until 2pm. It showed no signs of leaving the area where it was actively feeding. Enjoy.

BEGIN TAPE

Greetings. This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, May 17th 2019
at 11pm. The highlights of today's tape are BURROWING OWL, SAGE THRASHER,
WILSON'S PLOVER, SWAINSON'S WARBLER, WHITE-FACED IBIS, LITTLE GULL,
PROTHONOTARY WARBLER, YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER, KENTUCKY WARBLER, SUMMER
TANAGER, BLUE GROSBEAK and much more.

Despite some rather poor spring weather this week has produced an amazing
string of rarities.

Thursday evening a BURROWING OWL was found hanging around the small
construction site and surrounding marshy area at Big Egg Marsh south of
Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in Broad Channel. The owl was observed catching
insects until darkness set in but could not be relocated there Friday.

However, just north of there, at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge on Friday
afternoon a SAGE THRASHER was found feeding along a refuge trail. As
gathering birders watched from a respectful distance a nicely marker
THRASHER foraged back and forth along the central trail behind the visitors
center just above the south garden and below the blind and small pond
offering nice views. Hopefully it might continue there Saturday.

Out on eastern Long Island at Cupsogue County Park a WILSON'S PLOVER was
found Wednesday around the Piping Plover exclosures on the outer beach just
west of the beach buildings. The PLOVER remained in that area through
Friday roaming the beachfront from as far east as the houses just east of
the county park on Friday but usually more on the western side halfway to
the point. It also, at lower tides, has flown to the bay side bars to feed
eventually returning to the outer beach.

A reasonable week for landbird migration despite some hard weather the best
find among the warblers this week was a SWAINSON'S WARBLER singing in
Central Park's Ramble near Bow Bridge on Thursday.

Out at Heckscher State Park a well marked WHITE-FACED IBIS was spotted
again Monday among the large gathering of Glossy Ibis in the wet areas at
field 6 and today 2 WHITE-FACED were present at that site.

On Sunday during the storm an adult LITTLE GULL was seen briefly as it
moved past Riis Park.

Other warbler highlights this week featured a couple of PROTHONOTARYS in
Prospect Park as well as one early in the week at Westchester's Oscawana
Island Park. A YELLOW-THROATED in Central Park Wednesday and Friday with a
KENTUCKY there Thursday and Friday, another YELLOW-THROATED at Avalon
Gardens in Stony Brook Thursday, a MOURNING in Prospect Park Friday and an
ORANGE-CROWNED in Central Park Thursday. Also among the more unusual
warblers were a CERULEAN or two as well as decent numbers of such species
as CAPE MAY, BAY-BREASTED, BLACKBURNIAN and other expected species.

Among some SUMMER TANAGERS were birds in Central and Forest Parks while
BLUE GROSBEAKS were noted in Central Park and on Governors Island Tuesday
with one of each out at Jones Beach West End Thursday.

Other migrants this week featured both YELLOW-BILLED and BLACK-BILLED
CUCKOOS and OLIVE-SIDED, YELLOW-BELLIED and ACADIAN FLYCATCHERS. One or two
EVENING GROSBEAKS were noted in Central Park this week as were late PINE
SISKINS and a RED-HEADED WOODPECKER was found at Pelham Bay Park Wednesday.

An ICELAND GULL and 8 LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS were at Jones Beach West
End last Sunday when another ICELAND and 10 LESSER BLACK-BACKEDS were also
at Robert Moses State Park.

To phone in reports on Long Island call Tony Lauro at (631) 734-4126 or
call Tom Burke at (914) 967-4922.

This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Sage Thrasher Update
Hello All-
Those of us who have not had an opportunity to get to see the Thrasher, but are poised to go down on Sunday, would really appreciate any information from early Sunday morning regarding the status of the bird, posted here on NYSBirds-L. There are so many localized Apps that we are not tied into, that getting information is becoming a real problem. We appreciate your help.
Many thanks in advance.

The 5 marsh breeders were all present, visible and singing this morning,; namely CLAPPER RAIL, WILLET, MARSH WREN, SEASIDE SPARROW and SALTMARSH SPARROW.
An adult BALD EAGLE flew over, very high up, harassed by a Peregrine Falcon (probable the local breeder). The eagle ignored the falcon and kept going.
A pickup in shorebirds today with 11 species. A lovely morning.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Summer Tanagers in East Hampton
Just by way of interest. Had a pair seemingly with a nest at a traditional site in NorthWest Harbor (restricted access) this morning. Lots of agitated chattering when I approached the area where I suspect the nest is. The male has also been singing here for some weeks. This is a location where they have bred successfully in the past so fingers crossed.

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] Sage Thrasher YES
The Sage Thrasher continued at least until noon. It moved more toward the North Garden on the upper grassy paths parallel to the bike path. The bird can be quite confiding but also needs it’s space.
Any grassy path appears to be a possibilityif you can not locate it.

Good luck!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Manhattan & New York County, NYC 5/16-17
An amazing discovery by Jennifer Kepler of a Burrowing Owl at the Jamaica Bay refuge area’s “Big Egg marsh” in Queens County, NY on Thursday, 5/16 - congratulations to her & the lucky few other observers. The owl was also photographed there, on THURSDAY.

------
Manhattan & New York County, N.Y. City -
Thursday-Friday, 16-17 May, 2019

Friday morning (5/17) had what seemed far fewer individual migrants & perhaps lower species-diversity, judging from just Central Park and adjacent small greenspaces & streets, by comparison with the strong push and drop-in of migrants of the day prior. That noted, there are still plenty of migrants, & some of the rarer species may yet be re-discovered, &/or new discoveries made. I spent about 90 minutes from a bit before actual sunrise to nearly 7 a.m., with just 1 other birder in the immediate vicinity of the prior areas the Thursday Swainson’s Warbler had frequented, and we did not re-find it in that time period. Other birders also have since been on the look-&-listen for that rare species in the Ramble; on Friday a.m. [before 9 a.m.] there had been no confirmed re-discovery. Despite what appeared to be less diversity, I was able to confirm 18 warbler species in Central Park by about 8 a.m., many of these in the southern half of the park, with a visit to the south & west reservoir edges & adjacent bridle path.

There IS the chance that the Swainson’s Warbler is continuing in Central Park, & even in the same general area where first discovered, but at least equally, the chance that with very favorable conditions for migration on Thursday night, that bird (along with a lot of other drop-ins) may have moved on. If anyone does come upon the Swainson’s again anywhere, try to get an audio-clip of song, if it is noted singing. That was a wonderful feature of B. Van Doren’s report!

Thanks of course to Benjamin Van Doren for the find of the Swainson’s Warbler, also to Arie Gilbert for his Thursday p.m. help in re-finding when the warbler had gone missing for a spell; as well as to all on-scene who behaved well all day long, permitting this rare ‘southerner' to be seen by so many observers on Thursday - & for the greater part of the day.

Incidentally, for some context & documented records of Swainson’s Warbler in 2019 in the wider region north of the known breeding range, besides the Central Park find (which is well-documented!) there were (at least) these sighings also just this spring: one banded & photographed 4 May, at Powder Mill Nature Reserve, Westmoreland Co., PA (western PA); one photographed & seen by many on 13 May in Clark Co., Ohio (western OH); one photographed on 16 May in Monongalia Co., West Virgina, which may be close to potential breeding grounds, but is listed as 2nd-ever record for that county in WV; & written records from Cape May County-Higbee’s beach, N.J. from 23-24-25 April, & 5 & 6 May w/ many observers; these are all in 2019. Many other 2019 spring sightings have come from within, or south of, the known breeding range of the species. There is also a photographed bird from Boone Co., Missouri on 13 to 16 May (2019), an apparent first record of this species at that location (Grindstone Nature Area); this is likely a bit north of the species known breeding areas for Missouri.

[5/16]
Including the rare southern-breeding Swainson’s Warbler at Central Park, a minimum of 28 species of warblers were found just on Thursday, 5/16 in New York County (which includes Manhattan, as well as the adjacent islands: Randall’s and Governors Islands, and a few other smaller isles and parts of the surrounding waters All of those 28 warbler species were found on Manhattan island with somewhat lower warbler diversity seen or reported on the outlying isles); also in the list below, a couple of additional warbler species which were reported from Central Park; a Kentucky Warbler was seen by multiple observers in the western part of the Central Park Ramble on Thursday (5/16) morning, in addition to a near-simultaneous Kentucky at the north end, west of the Blockhouse. A Cerulean Warbler was reported from near Turtle Pond in Central but with no further follow-up to that sighting. With much movement particularly of more-arboreal species in the early a.m. Thursday, some birds may have moved around, and some certainly also moved on by mid-day on Thursday if not a lot earlier.

Also seen in Manhattan NYC on 5/16 were all 6 species of northeastern-breeding vireo species, at least 5 (of the 6) Catharus [genus] thrush species of N. America (lacking any confirmed-by-song Bicknell’s), at least 7 species of shorebirds (aka ‘waders’ to much of the rest of the world), at least 9 species of tyrannidae (new world flycatchers; lacking confirmed Alder Flycatcher), & (mostly-heard) Evening Grosbeaks (minimum of two, again in the Ramble of Central Park & lost early thanks to the shuffle-of-the-deck, and the super find of one warbler), and a wide assortment of other migrant and some resident species.

Thursday morning, before first-light, I was out & was aware of many thousands of migrant birds on the move, & many landing as the light grew before 5 a.m. - there was a lot of movement, including true fly-overs heading off & out of Central Park’s north end, as seen esp. from the n.-w. corner area. Birds were still moving, & some moving on, thru at least 7 a.m., more than 2 hours after first-light, & well into when the sun was fully up & shining bright. Far more individual birds appeared to be on the move in those 2+ hours than were seen in all of my wanderings later, even though many, many thousands of migrants had clearly set down on Manhattan, for the day on Thursday. This phenomenon was noticed by at least some of the other observers out quite early, & esp. so of some who were in the n.-w. part of Central & perhaps, by those in other locations at first light or shortly thereafter. All this said, this was not an “historic” fallout, but was more characteristic simply of what one could expect, after a few days of poor conditions for widespread migration, then an opportunity - despite some light rain & a few locally heavier showers that passed overnight Wed. into the wee hours of Thursday morning. While many birds dropped in, far more were able to make the trip to beyond Manhattan, at least.

I’ll add, by way of just a few examples, that some others shared some of the big migration rush & one example I happened to notice was a report for Highbridge Park in northern Manhattan, a far less-known birding locality than is Central, where hundreds & hundreds of birders congregate each May day with good weather. From M. Waldron, in just under a 1/2-hour’s survey in a part of Highbridge, ten warbler species including Cape May and 3 Blackpoll Warblers were found, along with 2 Indigo Buntings, 2 Baltimore Orioles, 2 Eastern Kingbirds, 2 Swainson’s Thrushes, & other migrants and some city-resident species. There were many other great finds of migrants in parks and green-spaces all around Manhattan on Thursday May 16th; one park that seemed especially productive for its size was Carl Schurz Park, on the east river and also a “front-yard” to the home away from home of mayors & first-families of New York City, best known as Gracie Mansion. In that relatively modest greenspace on Thursday a great many & various migrants were seen by several intrepid observers, including up to 15 spp. of warblers, some species seen in the multiple.

I actually had intended to be on Randall’s Island by early Thursday morning, with thoughts of possible landed shorebirds or other potentially unusual migrants having come down after the prior overnight rains. But I’ll freely admit, the situation with so many migrants right near by in Central Park’s north end stopped me, & the find of a Swainson’s Warbler as well in Central Park greatly delayed my visit to Randall’s Island, which took place well into the afternoon hours & was less striking, even with various nice birds present, than any of what was seen in the morning hours on Manhattan proper. It was still interesting to find a smattering of landbird migrants in a tiny patch of ‘woods’ on Randall’s Island as I was about to depart there, mid-afternoon - no rare or very unexpected species in that wooded patch of about 3 dozen larger trees, but some Catharus thrushes and a passel of warbler activity kept me alert there. The thrushes included at least Veery, Wood, and Swainson’s Thrush, & the warblers included one nice bright adult female Cape May, along with 8+ other more-common warbler spp., as well as 2 female-looking Indigo Buntings and a single adult White-crowned Sparrow. This little ‘patch' is north of the randall’s foot-bridge to-from manhattan island.

Besides the Turkey Oaks of Central & other parks being attractive to migrants in mid-late May, there are some other tree species & varieties to check, including native Wild Black Cherry, now in full bloom in N.Y. City, as well as Tulip Poplar (Liriodendron tulipfera), also in bloom lately, and various kinds of Locust trees, many also in bloom recently; it may also be worth a check of some larger beech trees for certain species & of course simply any trees & shrubs attracting migrant or nesting birds.

County have been which is as viewed from areas north of the G.W. Bridge, in northern-most Manhattan and sometimes looking across to the N.J. Palisades section, which lies across from n.w. Manhattan and parts of west Bronx county, NYC. - also, & as various other reports attest, this vulture species continues to expand its range in the northeast, & can be expected to increase further in coming years.)

Eastern Wood-Pewee (fairly common)
Yellow-bellied Flycatcher (few definitively, but at least 1 or 2 heard calling, also some well-seen or photographed for sufficient ID’s)
Acadian Flycatcher (modest numbers in, with at least small no’s. heard calling, and even some singing; N.B. this is a potential NYC breeder, and continues to expand slowly in the northeast)
Willow Flycatcher (some have been giving calls & occasional bits of song; breeds in N.Y. City, but may be only a passage migrant in Manhattan)
Alder / Willow Flycatcher (this type, once collectively called “Traill’s” Flycatcher before the 2 species were named, have been seen, & likely at least a few are Alder Flyctachers; difficult or impossible to ID without hearing a vocalization when not on their breeding grounds however; Alder being the more northerly-breeding, & sometimes presumed the later-in-spring arrival of the 2 spp. of this type; learn the songs & calls of each well, & still it’s a challenge to ID only on migration!)
Least Flycatcher (fairly widespread, almost ‘common’, some have been calling & also singing for quite a while this month in N.Y. City)
Eastern Phoebe (few; one was singing for a while in the east Ramble at Central Park, a.m. 5/16)
Great Crested Flycatcher (many, in many locations, a scant breeder in New York County)

Warbling Vireo (common & some may stay attempting to nest in Manhattan & as a widespread N.Y. City breeder)
Philadelphia Vireo (several reports from Central Park on 5/16 besides my own early Thurs. sighting at The Pond; Ramble area & north woods were add’l. locations noted by various observers)
Red-eyed Vireo (fairly common & in many locations, also a rather uncommon but regular & oft-overlooked breeder in New York County)

American Crow (now nesting on Manhattan, & etc.)
Fish Crow (nesting in a few locations around New York County including Manhattan)

Gray-cheeked Thrush (multiple, with at least 10 on 5/16 just in the first hour of full daylight, many were in the deep shade when observed)
Gray-cheeked [type] Thrush (several were poss. candidates for Bicknell’s Thrush, 5/16, including one giving harsh calls at ~ 5:30 a.m., n. woods/Central Park)
Swainson's Thrush (many - 200+++ in the first 4 hours of daylight in Central Park, and found in nearly all areas of Manhattan, 5/16 - strong push of the species)
Hermit Thrush (still on the move in some numbers; be cautious with all Catharus [genus] thrush ID’s, as they are not all as straightforward as thought, esp. if not singing)
Wood Thrush (very common, 5/16 - perhaps the largest arrival yet of this year; some are already singing ‘on territory’, a rather scarce nester on Manhattan, but more will move on from here)
American Robin (nearly ubiquitous, many are already w/young or are nesting, some for 2nd time this spring)

Eastern Towhee (very scarce breeder now in N.Y. County; a few are lingering, & hopefully some may nest successfully - if not too disturbed)
Chipping Sparrow (still some perhaps passing thru, but some in N.Y. County are nesting, as is increasing regular in some areas, including small no’s. in Central Park)
Field Sparrow (one, Great Hill, Central Park, and several others reliably reported from Manhattan incl. elsewhere in Central Park, on 5/16)
Savannah Sparrow (few noted, outer e. edge of Randall’s Island, 5/16, and at least a few reports from other outlying areas in N.Y. County)
Song Sparrow (regular nester in New York City, perhaps even a few still passing thru, but late now for any to get to most breeding areas)
Lincoln's Sparrow (multiple, & in fair numbers on passage now)
Swamp Sparrow (scarce now, but still some passing thru)
White-throated Sparrow (only fair numbers, much reduced from earlier in May & poss. most have moved on; a common wintering species in many Manhattan locations)
White-crowned Sparrow (multiple, some have been singing and in various locations scattered around Manhattan & its’ outlying N.Y. County isles)
-
Blue-winged Warbler (modest no’s. and many non-singers; females are more likely by now, & there can be odd probable-poss. hybrids of these with G-w. Warbler-cross found later into spring)
“Brewster’s"-type [hybrid] Warbler (one, north woods, a.m. on 5/16, & singing a somewhat odd song which is a common situation with many of these crossed Blue-Golden “winged” warbler hybrids - this fitting the “Brewster’s” type in plumage)
Tennessee Warbler (multiple on 5/16, with decent numbers singing well in early a.m.)
Orange-crowned Warbler (one was reported & as ‘singing' from Central Park on 5/16)
Nashville Warbler (some still singing on 5/16, thus males, but as with multiple warbler spp. now, many are females on passage)
Northern Parula (many - minimum of several hundred passing in first 2-3 hours of 5/16, as seen in n.w. part of Central Park, & also found in multiple locations all around)
Yellow Warbler (many - minimum of 80+++ on 5/16, & likely many more, as these were in some street trees, & odd locations for the day; a rather scarce breeder on Manhattan, also on outlying isles; much more regular as a breeder in all the other N.Y. City counties)
Chestnut-sided Warbler (common now; many in Central Park on 5/16)
Magnolia Warbler (very common - the biggest arrival so far of this species was on 5/16 in New York County, many singing as well)
Cape May Warbler (still very good numbers, minimum of 20 in New York County on 5/16, with reports from many locations, & from a dozen+ areas in Central Park alone)
Black-throated Blue Warbler (common, with females starting to equal bright singing males; sightings in many locations, some also in some Manhattan street trees)
Yellow-rumped [Myrtle] Warbler (not as common as Magnolia by now, but still somewhat more so than Blackpoll Warbler… whew!)
Black-throated Green Warbler (still in very good numbers & with more females starting to appear)
Blackburnian Warbler (decent numbers, more females & some 1st-year males are appearing too)
Yellow-throated Warbler (at least one reliable report for Central Park’s north end, on 5/16, a singing male, near the Pool, West 100-103rd St. area)
Pine Warbler (scarce now, but at least several in the huge movement of warblers on 5/16 in Manhattan)
Prairie Warbler (fairly good numbers continue, & females also increasing lately)
Bay-breasted Warbler (modest numbers, with small increase for 5/16 - worth a check of larger beech trees in some areas)
Blackpoll Warbler (fairly strong numbers, but stll far from very common, and by far more males than females thus far this spring)
Cerulean Warbler (one reported from Central Park, 5/16)
Black-and-white Warbler (still in good numbers, with females predominant now, and perhaps also some first-year males recently)
American Redstart (major arrival for 5/16, with many hundreds passing by in first 3+ hours of the morning, & far more all around; N.B., this a generally uncommon N.Y. City nester)
Worm-eating Warbler (few, and likely some seen now are females, but still some singing males - N.B., this is a species that has expanded it’s breeding range northwards)
SWAINSON’S Warbler (1 seen singing, 80+ total observers on morning of 5/16, Central Park; thanks to B. Van Doren for the discovery!!)
Ovenbird (extremely common & widespread, likely many are females, but many males also continue; among the 5 most-common warbler species of 5/16, thru all of New York County)
Northern Waterthrush (rather common, many singing, but also likely many females now passing through too)
Louisiana Waterthrush (scarce now, this species expanding a bit northwards in the beeding range - & this is causing more to be seen a bit further into the spring than was so in the past)
Kentucky Warbler (minimum of two individuals in Central Park on 5/16, one seen by several observers in the morning in the s.w. portion of the Ramble, one in north woods north of Blockhouse)
Common Yellowthroat (very common indeed! - many hundreds passed thru in early hours of 5/16, and many are also about in all sorts of locations, some in odd spots as they continue to move - this is also one of the few regular breeders among warblers in N.Y. City)
Hooded Warbler (at least several, likely more, on 5/16 - seen in Central Park at 3 or more distinct locations)
Wilson's Warbler (excellent arrival on 5/16, with more than are typically seen all at once on passage - up to 20+ for Central Park alone, & more as well in multiple other locations)
Canada Warbler (good additional arrival on 5/16, many singing)
-
Summer Tanager (there were several reports of this species for Manhattan on 5/16, at least 2 of them referred to as females; I don’t have any further details of these)
Scarlet Tanager (multiple, a few were seen or heard from street trees, 5/16, & in the north end of Central Park alone, 15+ singing males were present on that morning, scattered areas, also found in many other locations, & many females also now)
Northern Cardinal (fairly common breeder)
Rose-breasted Grosbeak (modest numbers as many have moved thru, but still in at least the many dozens thru Manhattan on 5/16, and more females, also some first-year males passing thru)
Indigo Bunting (very strong migration on 5/16, with 40+++ just in the first 3 hours of daylight, and multiples found in various location thru that day, also many females as well as singing males, & some with less-than-complete alternate/breeding plumage as is somewhat typical of this species in mid-May; this species is still expanding in range & perhaps in total population - tolerant of more habitat disturbance and human populations than are many other neotropical-wintering migrants, & thus a somewhat colorful reminder of our human impact on the overall environment)
Bobolink (at least a few in the rush of movement on 5/16, passing thru, but also a couple in the small marsh at Randall’s Island later in the same day)
Red-winged Blackbird (regular breeder in New York County, and even a few passage migrants, either first-year males or similar-looking females in flight)
Common Grackle (fairly common, and widespread)
Brown-headed Cowbird (moderate nunbers moving, as is typical with the big push of passerines in spring)
Orchard Oriole (modest numbers, some may already be on territories, in the sparse locations where they attempt nesting in New York County; also some still likely on the move)
Baltimore Oriole (very impressive early a.m. movement on 5/16, and some still seemed to be passing in afternoon hours, as well as the numbers that will stay & nest in N.Y. County; many females and 1st-year males and females in this interesting icterid, which often employs communal-family nest-helpers amongst its own)
Purple Finch (multiple, and more poss. passing early on 5/16, “lost” in the mix of other passage species, but also some lingering longer; both sexes present & often rather vocal, but also may be quite unobtrusive when silent, even if nearby and actively feeding high in trees.)
House Finch (common in select areas)
American Goldfinch (fairly common and moving, as well as some potential breeders, not nesting yet however, & many could still move on this spring)
Evening Grosbeak (at least 2 individuas continued on 5/16 in the Central Park Ramble, but easily “lost” them, esp. as word of a certain very-rare-in-NYS warbler got around!!!)
House Sparrow (ubiquitous and sadly pestiferous as they usurp native species nesting & food sources)
--
An American Bittern was well-described, seen as an early a.m. fly-by, from Central Park on Wed., 5/15, as reported by M. Klein.

A rather belated note, & extralimital to N.Y. but on 4 May, 2019 a Zone-tailed Hawk was photographed in southwestern Maine; a first state-record if accepted by their records committee. Makes one realize that it can be worth looking more often at those Turkey Vultures, and seeing if “something here is not like the others”…[!] And also, just what other states did that hawk travel thru - on its way TO Maine?

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Wilson’s Plover -yes
Looks like I arrived to find the Wilson’s Plover just after Shai and Patricia left.

At first it was just ouside the enclosure and eventually I watched it walk west and into the dune grass.

When I saw it, around 11:20, it was about 2/3 of the way back to the western edge of the parking lot from the cut out to the beach described earlier by Mike H.

So during that period, it would have made more sense to not walk the dirt road to the beach access but instead, access the beach from the western part of the lot.

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] Burrowing Owl - NO, Big Egg Marsh, Queens County
The original finder of the Queens burrowing owl is Brooklyn birder and conservationist Jen Kepler. Major ups to her for this sensational, scientifically important discovery. Wishing more rarities for everyone birding this weekend,PS

Continues at Cupsogue. Shai Mitra found it east in front of the houses but it has since moved west again and is just west of the cut through the dunes at the west end of the parking lot.

Good Birding,

Present at Cupsogue this AM at 7:30 However it is much further east than previously reported. Walk the road from the parking lot and at the end of the tree line on the bay side there are 2 paths, one to the bay, the other to the ocean. Take the ocean path to the beach and turn left. The Wilson’s was between the shore line and enclosure

OBS: Sandra Critelli, m.ob. including Signe Hammer


Sandra Critelli led a bird walk Thursday evening, finding, among other birds, a Kentucky Warbler at the Oven. Birders coming into the park today to look for the Swainson's Warbler may want to check the part of the Ramble near the Oven and the Point for the Kentucky Warbler.

Congrats Sandra for a great find.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Burrowing Owl - NO, Big Egg Marsh, Queens County
Despite an extensive search at the last known location beginning around 5:10, there has been no sign of the Burrowing Owl in or around the construction zone at Big Egg Marsh. The workers appear to be slowly gathering, but no construction has begun as of this writing. Many of the surprisingly few birders present are starting to head off to work. If anyone else follows up and has better luck than we have, I’m sure there are many New York birders who would greatly appreciate prompt updates with adequate details.

Cheers,
-Tim H

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Burrowing Owl info
The bird was sitting on the fence in the back of a make shift maintenance yard that is on your left immediately after you pull into big egg marsh which is at the end of cross bay boulevard. The bird was easily viewed from the road. I have no idea if the bird will stay in the maintenance yard if the cranes that are parked there are being active but I would think it’s highly likely that it won’t. However there’s tons of suitable habitat in the area as lots of construction is going on and there are posts set up all over the place. The bird was last seen hunting out in the marsh as it was dark. There’s plenty of public parking and as long as the birders stay out of the way of the construction vehicles I don’t see any reason at all not to go and try for this bird. The baseball fields are still open to the public and while the owl was there there were probably 40 cars parked there for the kids softball game. This is not a closed off or restricted area in case that wasn’t clear. Again I was not the original finder I’m just getting the word out

Subject: [nysbirds-l] small correction: Swainson's Warbler/p.m. location: Central Park, NYC 5/16
Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City - Thursday p.m., 5/16 - Swainson’s Warbler redux:

In my previous post, the direction given coming north from the Bow Bridge is correct, but do not go either far left or right off the bridge if coming across from the non-wooded side to the more wooded Ramble entrance, stay near the lake without going far right (that is, don’t go far east. On the left, using these directions, is mostly the lake - water… and B. Van Doren’s earlier post will assist with location as will most other nearby birders).

good luck,

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Swainson's Warbler, Central Park, NYC (p.m. locations, Thursday, 5/16)
Thursday, 16 May, 2019 -

The Swainson’s Warbler in the Ramble area of Central Park (Manhattan, N.Y. City) had moved just a bit, essentially along the shore / vicinity of The Lake, traveling farther north from Bow Bridge, BUT has come back to closer to where first found in the morning: nearer to Bow Bridge on the path that goes directly (straight north, not to the left / east, if one is coming from Bow Bridge, into the Ramble from the SE (or non-wooded) side of that bridge. Again, of course seek other birders & photographers who are likely to be in the vicinity. And be patient, even if it is singing, or calling well, it can be quite difficult to see. With patience and close attention, views may be had of this mostly (& typically) shy skulker.

good luck,

Tom Fiore

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Swainson's Warbler details from this morning
Hi all,

For any interested, here are the exact locations the Swainson's Warbler was at this morning in Central Park. I am not there right now and don't have the latest. Good luck if you go!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Summer Tanager, Blue Grosbeak, other migrants - Jones Beach, Nassau County
Jones Beach has been reasonably active this morning, with good diversity overall and solid numbers of many migrants. I’ve detected 91 species over the course of the morning. A female Summer Tanager was seen in the pines along the northern edge of the median just before the turnaround, the same area where I heard a Blue Grosbeak vocalizing, giving both flight calls and typical calls. An eastbound Pine Siskin and good numbers of Red-breasted Nuthatches were notable lingerers from this winter’s irruptions. Other birds of note included Lincoln’s Sparrow briefly seen at the Coast Guard hedgerow, a good-size flock of Red Knots on Short Beach, and 14 species of warblers including several cooperative male Cape Mays.

Cheers!

Still there as of 1030, resting by itself.

Another way to get to the plover is to walk down the dirt road leading west
from the parking lot at Cupsogue. You’ll pass three sandy parking areas for
off-road vehicles on your right. The third one will have fencing between
the parking stalls, and each of these pieces of fencing has a number. At
the far end of that third parking lot, across from stall 34 or so, there is
a path way out to the beach marked with a large orange traffic cone by
snowfencing. The bird was just a few yards west of where that path ends at
the beach, resting by itself within the plover fenced area.

I assume most places had some movement last night. In 45 minutes at the Nature Center this a.m. (630-715) Kyle Bardwell and I must have had a dozen warbler species including male bay breasted, blackburnian and cape may. Ball field puddle still had five shorebird species and purple martin house occupancy is increasing before Memorial Day price increase. Work intervened before other areas of the park including the land fill could be checked.

And Spring came too!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Wilson's Plover directions (Suffolk)
Here is a more detailed description of the location of the Wilson's Plover,
at Cupsogue Beach County Park, than in my previous posting (which I hope
went out). The fastest way to where I saw the bird late this afternoon
would be to walk west on the 4-wheel drive road from the parking lot. One
on that road, you will pass several official footpaths from the road
through the dunes to the beach ("Designated Dune Access Points"), bordered
by orange-flagged string. Go to the fifth open path (ignoring one that is
closed), just before an open metal gate. When I saw the Plover, it was
immediately west of that path as it opens onto the beach. For the first 15
minutes or so, it was on the dune, in the "virtually fenced" Piping Plover
reserve; it then made its way to the water's edge, where it succeeded at
least in catching a wave-tossed gastropod that it carried up into the
dune. The walk from that site back along the road to the parking lot took
about 10 minutes (less than the walk westward on the beach into the wind,
searching for the bird).

I would have provided more information while in the field, but my phone's
battery charge was dangerously low.

Here's hoping it stays into tomorrow,
Doug Futuyma

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Manhattan, NYC 5/11-15 (Evening Grosbeaks, Blue Grosbeaks, Yellow-throated Warbler 5/15, & more)
A White-faced Ibis was reported after noon by K. Thompson on Wednesday, 15 May at Hecksher State Park, Nassau Co. NY as were at least 65 Glossy Ibis in the same area.

2 Cattle Egrets (together) were photographed and reported by B. Nott & L. Scrima (& also seen by others) at the Walkill N.W.R. in Orange County, NY - reported as seen early Wed. 5/15 near the junction of "Liberty Lane & Winding Waters" trails there.

An adult Little Gull (in alternate i.e. breeding plumage) was carefully observed moving by J.Riis Park in coastal Queens County early on Sunday, May 12 by S. Ausubel & C. Finger (10,000 Birds collaborative), with a variety of other expected members of the family Laridae (gulls, terns, skimmers) and without the presence of Bonaparte’s Gull; this was in the rain, but with visibility reported as good, which will happen at times in sea-watching even with rain falling.


In my previous post, I mistakenly placed the date as “4/14” into the header-subject line; the date was of course 5/14, as stated in the intro. of the report from Central Park, NYC. (I may have thought that it felt more like mid-April weather, or for that matter, a decent weather-day for mid-March!) Thankfully, we are seeing much more mid-May-like weather again. Birds had been suffering in some areas from a relative paucity of food due to the cool & wet conditions.

Expect a stronger migration Wed. night into Thursday, likely many more arrivals showing in the N.Y. City area and well beyond. Dependent as well on any localized heavier showers or chance storms, there could be at least some localized migrant ‘fallouts” in & around the region.

Manhattan, N.Y. City - notes in particular from Tuesday/14th & Saturday, 11 May, 2019 -
with some notes from New York County locations off-Manhattan (from the other islands)

The mid-point of May in Manhattan, & we have at least a few EVENING Grosbeaks still around & passing through! Most have been heard more than seen - on Wed. 5/15, there were audible calls from the area of the Loch (aka Ravine) in Central Park’s north end, and about simultaneously, heard from near the n.w. end of The Lake, on the west edge of the Central Park Ramble. However, a female Evening Grosbeak has shown itself (again) around & near the Azalea Pond in Central Park’s Ramble, with multiple observers. Also present &/or passing through are ongoing Pine Siskins and (more of) Purple Finches. Red-breasted Nuthatch also has continued in the multiple, although in lowered numbers from fall movements.

It’s worth adding that over the last several months, Evening Grosbeaks were found & photographed to as far into the southern U.S. as (at least) central Mississippi, with some flocks of at least 3 dozen in some locations such as in West Virginia, even to end of April, and in other locations not as far south of New York, into early May or even more recently. The species as a whole was also seen in good numbers in locations through much of the U.S. southwest (& west), but it seems that the last few months found few or none of those coming to areas east of New Mexico & Colorado, with an exception (of just one bird) in western Kansas; no recent sightings in Texas, and few near the far-west TX border area, in s.e. New Mexico in recent months. Far north & east of New York, a sighting of a single Eve.-beak was recorded from Labrador, a short way north of the northern tip of Newfoundland only a few days ago.

Of perhaps ‘local' interest only, the non-native Turkey Oaks [Quercus serris, native to southeastern Europe & thru the nation of Turkey; planted in a number of parks in N.Y. City) in Central Park, which leaf out a bit later than other oaks, were again productive recently, including on Wednesday. A YELLOW-THROATED Warbler was found in the Turkey Oaks along the western part of the reservoir & bridle path, not far from a park entrance at W. 90th St. (this area made best-known with the occurrence of a state-rare Kirtland’s Warbler in May of 2018). These trees also hosted at least one Yellow-throated Warbler and many other migrants earlier this spring, in Central Park. They are sometimes the most-productive oaks in mid to late May for finding migrants, as other oak species and cultivars may already have reached a stage where less food is available to the insectivorous migrants in the form of various arthropods, but especially of caterpillars of certain small moth species, a staple of many birds in spring. More Turkey Oaks are located along the bridle path of Central Park immediately south of the reservoir & those trees have been getting a bit active again this week.

Some migrants still being seen & heard on Wed. 5/15 in Manhattan included Winter Wren, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Palm & Pine Warblers & Louisiana Waterthrush, while the multitudes of ongoing Yellow-bellied Sapsucker reports into mid-May in New York County suggest that many of that species have been reluctant to move on - the species is not known to breed there. Also recorded for Wed. 5/15 was a moderately late American Woodcock, assuming twas not a release from any rehab.(?)

A number of interesting aspects to the rainy, chilly day in Manhattan on Tuesday, 14 May. Thanks to Tim Healy for his timely post here, with news that at least 2 Evening Grosbeaks (the one seen earlier was a female-plumaged bird) were in the Central Park Ramble, and it is of course possible that more than two of the species were in fact present in the area. Well worth listening, & looking for, in the next few days as this species can even at this time of year sometimes linger in unexpected places. Pine Siskin was again reported, also in Central Park, and this species also is worth listening & looking for, sometimes to be found mixed with American Goldfinch flocks.

A BLUE Grosbeak (female-plumaged) was photographed by L. Beausoleil & seen with ‘G.S.S.’ on Governors Island on Tuesday (5/14), and also present there were a few dozen Common Terns, as well as more-usual migrant species for New York County, including multiple warblers & some migrant thrushes. Another BLUE Grosbeak was reliably reported from Central Park on the same day, & also in female plumage. Bobolinks were on the move again Wednesday, with some moving thru over & perhaps stopping in at Central Park, as well as along the Hudson River greenway, & on Governors Island again (the latter report from G. Willow et al). Common Nighthawks are also moving, and could be looked & listened for locally.

There were more of at least some migrant birds in particular places in Manhattan on Tuesday than on Monday (the day prior). Some of the species that showed clear increases (albeit patchily distributed) included Indigo Bunting (of both sexes) & Scarlet Tanagers (of both sexes), plus at least these warbler species: Cape May (more than a dozen were present just in Central Park, from the s. end of that park to, most notably, the northwest sector), Ovenbird (at least 80 in Central Park alone, & many dozens more - conservatively! - in other parks & greenspaces), Common Yellowthroat (similar to the numbers of Ovenbirds), with also modestly notable numbers of Black-throated Blue Warbler, American Redstart, Black-and-white Warbler, and N. Parula. At least 20 species of warbler were present in Manhattan Tuesday, although seeing that lot of twenty was much more time-consuming than some would deem reasonable… and in some locations in certain parks -or in sections thereof- warblers, & migrants in general, appeared relatively sparse in variety or number. However some areas provided fairly good variety, more in keeping with what one expects here at mid-May.

Baltimore and Orchard Orioles were found in many areas in Manhattan, & some, especially of the former, will be remaining to potentially nest there. Modest numbers of sparrows, including some Lincoln’s, White-crowned, & Savannah Sparrows were found, and there are still White-throated Sparrows in modest numbers, many of the latter having moved on & it will be interesting to see if yet another later “push” of that (commonly-wintering) Zonotrichia [genus] passes thru this city, or if most of the White-throateds have already done so. Many of these that were about in recent weeks may have not been the same that wintered-over locally, but this is also an interesting conundrum, as some White-throated Sparrows, in some areas in (esp.) urban Manhattan may linger long; it also is not too rare for a few to summer in the larger parks, with absolutely no signs of any breeding.

Uncommon for Manhattan (although some nest on the isles near to that island), Yellow-crowned Night-Herons were still being seen in at least several locations on Manhattan, including in Central Park to Wed. 5/15. A Common Loon in high plumage was on the Central Park reservoir at least thru Wednesday (as also were increasingly common Double-crested Cormorants). At least 3 Ruddy Ducks also were still there then, and a rather low number of the 3 most-regular hirundines - Barn, Tree, and N. Rough-winged Swallows moving low over the reservoir’s waters.

As just one indication of nice migrants being found in small parks & greenspaces, at the Clinton Community Garden (which is named for a longstanding neighborhood) in Manhattan’s mid-west side, a Cape May Warbler, Scarlet Tanager & some other migrant species were noted by M. Edde on Wed. 5/15. Many, many other smaller parks or greenspaces are hosting migrants as well. At least 2 dozen species of warbler were found on Wednesday, 5/15 through all of New York County.


Going back to Saturday, May 11, a very good day for migration in much of the northeast, & Manhattan & it’s surrounding isles in New York County all received a good many migrants as well as some diurnal passage; Blue Grosbeak, Summer Tanager, Common Nighthawk, and at least 4 of the 5 northeastern-breeding species of Empidonax being seen/heard (the Empidonax included Least, Acadian, Willow, and Yellow-bellied Flyctachers, documented, with the possibility that Alder Flycatcher also made an appearance), as well as increases in many of the later-arriving landbird migrants, with Blackpoll Warblers and Gray-cheeked [type] Thrushes amongst the indicators of ongoing middle of May migrations. On May 11 (alone) at least 27 species of warblers were collectively found in Manhattan, that even with a few of the rarer species seeming to have departed the night before.

A Marsh Wren was again seen in an unusual location at Union Square Park in lower Manhattan on Sunday, 5/12; thanks to Alice Deutsch & others for reporting. A single Broad-winged Hawk was soaring across the north end of Central Park on Wed. 5/15, headed slowly north; this bird had what appeared to be a single missing (or very displaced) primary (a flight-feather).

--
American Lady (Vanessa virginiensis) butterflies continue to move thru, some stopping off in Manhattan, with some numbers again moving as of Wed. 5/15.

good May birding,

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Wilson's Plover - Cupsogue County Park Suffolk Co.
Hi!

I've received a photo of a Wilson's Plover from a Piping Plover technician
out at Cupsogue County Park. Location of the bird was a half mile east of
these coordinates: 40.767498,-72.7436

Other location specifics I received was "if you park in the lot and walk
out onto the beach it was in the symbolic PIPL fencing." That's all I know.
The report with photo will be posted on ebird later tonight.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Pelham Bay Park, Bronx -Red-headed Woodpecker, warblers and shorebirds
Joe McManus and I led a group through Pelham Bay Park this morning. It was a free walk sponsored by NYC Audubon.
We had a terrific morning, with some warblers coming in low and close. The morning was capped off with an adult Red-headed Woodpecker on the main paved path on Hunter Island, only a few minutes before we exited.
It was also nice see that some “Puddle Birds” are back in the flooded grassy areas!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Evening Grosbeak(s), Central Park, Manhattan
A female Evening Grosbeak has apparently been seen several times throughout the day in the Ramble of Central Park. I have been doing some post-work birding in the light rain and just heard the bird calling in the trees high above the Azalea Pond. There seems to be more than one voice, though, with vocalizations overlapping with one another. Currently audible right now, trying to get a visual on the bird(s).

Cheers!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Evening Grosbeak, Central Park, NYC (Tues., 4/14)
Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City - Tuesday, 14 May, 2019:

An EVENING Grosbeak was among birds observed Tuesday morning (5/14) in the Ramble section; this during a group bird-walk for & by the American Museum of Natural History's leader & participants. Many other migrants are also present in Central Park & elsewhere around Manhattan. Despite what appears ‘contrary’ weather regionally, there is some evidence for ongoing bird movement since the day prior, and other unexpected species might well turn up. More anon., with additions.

good birding,

Subject: RE: [nysbirds-l] White-faced Ibis Heckscher SP Suffolk Co.
I believe the White-faced Ibis present at Heckscher today was a fourth individual, distinct from the two birds present here on 1 May:

https://flic.kr/p/2emuZme
https://flic.kr/p/258UbgT

--and also from the brighter bird present at adjacent Timber Point on 15 Apr:

https://flic.kr/p/TpeSQd

Today's bird showed bright red facial skin and a broad white border, most like the bird of 15 Apr, but unlike that bird it was notably large, tawny-colored, and showed wholly bright pinkish legs (all three of the birds present earlier this season showed color mostly around the ankles):

https://flic.kr/p/25hf8eH

When I eventually took a careful count of the ibides, I found exactly 107 Glossy and 1 White-faced.

Subject: RE: [nysbirds-l] White-faced Ibises Heckscher SP Suffolk Co.

The two White-faced Ibises continued in the flooded picnic area when I left around 10:00.

Both are interesting-looking and not quite typical. One individual, the one Pat found yesterday I think, has very limited white facial feathering and not-very-bright (but definitely pink-red, especially in good light) facial skin and eye. The second individual, found by Pat this morning, is more typical-looking in these respects. Both show decidedly pink-red ankles and gray bills--appropriate for White-faced Ibis.

Interestingly, the duller-faced bird is very large and very tawny-colored on the neck and body--classic White-faced--whereas the brighter-faced bird looks much more like a Glossy Ibis in terms of structure and body plumage. My best assessment is that both are within the range of expected variation for relatively dull adult White-faced Ibises.

Last evening I photographed (poorly, as is my usual wont) a White-faced
Ibis in non breeding plumage--no white borders around the pink eye and
facial skin, and legs pink only around the "knees", feeding with 17
Glossy Ibis in the flooded picnic area of Field 6.

This morning I checked again; there were at least 30 ibis feeding
actively in the puddles, and I immediately picked out a White-faced,
this one showing moderately distinct white borders on the face, and
brighter pink legs than yesterday's bird. I had to race off to work but
alerted Shai Mitra to be looking out for a second bird when he arrived
shortly after. Shai did indeed find what is certainly yesterday's bird
in addition to the better marked individual.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Reminder BBC Presentation Tomorrow Night! Tessa Boase
*Note: This event meets in Classroom C at the Prospect Park Zoo. Please see
below for details.*


*Tomorrow! Tuesday May 14 7PM*

TESSA BOASE PRESENTS: MRS PANKHURST’S PURPLE FEATHER: FASHION, FURY AND
FEMINISM – WOMEN’S FIGHT FOR CHANGE

For half a century, from the 1870s to the 1920s, women on both sides of the
Atlantic were gripped by a fashion craze that decreed all hats should be
laden with feathers. Not just feathers, but wings, bird and whole bodies of
birds – often several birds at a time. Species the world over were slowly
brought to the brink of extinction, and all for the sake of millinery.
Campaigning on behalf of the birds was a small band of angry woman with a
splendidly simple goal. They were going to stamp out the fashion for
feathers in hats.

The ‘feather fight’, as it became known, was bitter, vicious and
un-sisterly. Wearers of the ‘bird hat’ were attacked as narcissists and
slaughterers. Edwardian fashion victims hit back, calling their female
critics ‘plumage cranks’ and ‘feather faddists’. Why shouldn’t emancipated
women wear what they wanted? Leading the battle in Britain was a fearsome
woman who has not been remembered by history, and yet for 50 years was the
driving force behind the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB),
today Britain’s biggest conservation charity. Her name was Etta Lemon.
Where she lead in1889, the Audubon Society would follow.

When social historian Tessa Boase told the RSPB she wanted to write their
early story, they refused to let her revisit their archives. To a former
investigative journalist and Oxford English graduate, this was a challenge
she could not resist . . . Join her to hear the intriguing untold story of
women, birds, hats – and votes. After the talk, Tessa will be signing
copies of her book, Mrs Pankhurst’s Purple Feather: Fashion, Fury and
Feminism – Women’s Fight for Change.

Note: This event will meet in Classroom C at the Prospect Park Zoo.

Not just feathers, but wings, bird and whole bodies of birds – often several birds at a time. Species the world over were slowly brought to the brink of extinction, and all for the sake of millinery.
Campaigning on behalf of the birds was a small band of angry woman with a splendidly simple goal. They were going to stamp out the fashion for feathers in hats.
The ‘feather fight’, as it became known, was bitter, vicious and un-sisterly. Wearers of the ‘bird hat’ were attacked as narcissists and slaughterers. Edwardian fashion victims hit back, calling their female critics ‘plumage cranks’ and ‘feather faddists’. Why shouldn’t emancipated women wear what they wanted?
Leading the battle in Britain was a fearsome woman who has not been remembered by history, and yet for 50 years was the driving force behind the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), today Britain’s biggest conservation charity. Her name was Etta Lemon. Where she led in 1889, the Audubon Society would follow.
When social historian Tessa Boase told the RSPB she wanted to write their early story, they refused to let her revisit their archives. To a former investigative journalist and Oxford English graduate, this was a challenge she could not resist . . . Join her to hear the intriguing untold story of women, birds, hats – and vote.
Copies of Tessa’s book, Mrs Pankhurst’s Purple Feather: Fashion, Fury and Feminism – Women’s Fight for Change, will be available for sale after the meeting.

Hope to see you Wednesday!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Linnaean Society of NY Program, May 14th, 2019, at the American Museum of Natural History
On Tuesday evening, May 14th, 2019 the Linnaean Society of New York
2018/2019 Speaker Program will feature two new presentations sure to be of
interest to New York birders:



6:00 pm - Silent Sparks: The Wondrous World of Fireflies - Sara Lewis

Surely among the most wondrous creatures that share our planet, fireflies
are intricately woven into the fabric of many human cultures. Their ethereal
beauty evokes awe and delight. Yet for most of us, fireflies remain shrouded
in mystery: How do these creatures make light? What gives with all that
flashing? Are fireflies disappearing? In this talk noted firefly expert and
author Sara Lewis dives into the mysterious world of fireflies to reveal the
latest scientific discoveries about their luminous lives. We will journey
from the meadows of New England to the rivers of Japan and the mangroves of
Malaysia to hear remarkable stories of firefly courtship and romance,
treachery, poison, and murder. Meanwhile, these charismatic insects are
declining due to habitat loss, light pollution, and overharvesting. Come
learn about how, for more than a century and continuing to the present day,
fireflies have been exploited for chemistry, beauty, and love.



Sara Lewis, Professor of Biology at Tufts University, has spent the past
thirty years studying the luminous lives of fireflies.



7:30 pm - The Art of Writing Natural History: Using Birds as Creative
Conduits to Conservation - J. Drew Lanham



Birds have been the motivation for humans throughout our history. Aesthetic
appeal, flight, and beautiful songs have moved poets, prophets,
philosophers, professors, and even politicians to create verse, art, ideas
and policy around avian species. Birds then, have served as conduits between
head, heart, and practice. This talk will explore Dr. Drew Lanham's personal
odyssey with birds that spans the gamut from poetry to policy and inspires
and informs as to how a blend of science and art is necessary for
conservationists to succeed in saving birds, habitats, and the human beings
that share range and requisites for a healthy environment.



In his twenty-two years on the Clemson University faculty, Dr. Lanham has
worked to understand how forest management impacts wildlife and how humans
think about nature. As a black American, he's intrigued by how culture and
ethnicity can impact perceptions of nature and its care.

------------------------------------------------------------------



Both presentations are free and will be held in the Linder Theater on the
first floor of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.
Enter at West 77th Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue. All
welcome!

2018/2019 program can be found here:

Hi all,

Spent about two hours at Oceanside Marine Nature Study Area. Mostly the
usual suspects. There was also a horned grebe in the creek at the western
edge of the preserve as well as a Blue-Winged teal in the marsh in one of
the areaa of open water just to East of the centeral boardwalk.

Happy birding,

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Another Summer Tanager!
This time in the Long Pond Greenbelt in Sag Harbor. I saw the bird on the west side of the trail exactly where the Old RR Spur connects to the Round Pond trail.

Compared to yesterday’s bird, this one was much more mottled yellow. Its head was the only fully red part of its body, its wings mostly olive.

I took some audio of its “pickytuckytuck” call which hopefully is audible and which I will publish with my eBird list. The bird was high in a distant tree and I had a Scarlet Tanager just overhead dominating the airwaves.

Also new warblers (for out east) arrived overnight including Magnolia, Blackpoll, and Black Throated Blue.

[~BEGIN RBA TAPE~]

Greetings! This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, May 10, 2019 at
9:00 pm.

The highlights of today's tape are COMMON GREENSHANK, RUFF, BLACK-NECKED
STILT, PROTHONOTARY, YELLOW-THROATED, KENTUCKY, GOLDEN-WINGED and
extralimital TOWNSEND’S WARBLERS, SUMMER TANAGER, BLUE GROSBEAK and much
more.

Well, it is Warbler time, but what a fine week for Shorebirds! Last Sunday
at the rain pools on Timber Point Golf Course in Great River a COMMON
GREENSHANK was discovered feeding with GREATER YELLOWLEGS and other
Shorebirds and Gulls on what was fortunately a rather unpleasant rainy day
that kept golf course activity to an absolute minimum. For all of Sunday
birders were able to enjoy nice views of what, pending NYSARC acceptance,
will be a first NYS record. With conditions improving overnight, golf
course play resumed Monday, and the bird was only seen very early and not
thereafter and has not been uncovered since.

This morning at Marshlands Conservancy in Rye a nicely plumaged male white
and black RUFF appeared on the mud flats with some GREATER YELLOWLEGS, but
after a 40 minute stay it suddenly took off and joined a migrating flock of
shorebirds moving overhead. The flock circled as though considering
landing on the flats but then rose higher and continued southwest down the
Westchester coast towards New York City. Among the other shorebirds at
Marshlands today were three WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPERS.

A BLACK-NECKED STILT extended its stay at the Lido Beach Passive Natural
Area at least to Tuesday, and a second one was found Sunday out on eastern
Long Island at Georgica Pond in East Hampton, this one not reported after
Sunday.

Another Shorebird of note was a STILT SANDPIPER reported from the lagoon at
Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx today.

Among the Herons, two lingering CATTLE EGRETS were at Oakwood Beach on
Staten Island Saturday, an AMERICAN BITTERN was flushed at Southards Pond
Park in Babylon Sunday, and a TRICOLORED HERON was at Captree Island Monday.

Last Saturday single CASPIAN TERNS were at Jones Beach West End and Sagg
Pond, and among scattered numbers of LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS were 61
counted last Sunday along the beachfront at Robert Moses State Park off
Fields 2 and 5.

Six RED-NECKED GREBES were off Playland Park in Rye on Monday.

Single EASTERN WHIP-POOR-WILLS were seen at Brooklyn’s Greenwood Cemetery
Monday and in Central Park Wednesday and heard in northern Manhattan early
Friday morning.

Despite some continuing rather poor migration weather locally, some Warbler
highlights have included PROTHONOTARY WARBLER in Central and Prospect Parks
Saturday and later, with two in Prospect Tuesday, in Massapequa Preserve
and one at Southards Pond Wednesday. YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER was noted in
Central Park Monday and again today and at Rye Nature Center during the
week. A GOLDEN-WINGED WARBLER visited the Forest Park waterhole Sunday.
KENTUCKY WARBLERS were in Central Park Wednesday and Thursday and Forest
Park Thursday, and Central Park provided a MOURNING WARBLER Sunday and
Tuesday. The excellent Warbler variety also included an ORANGE-CROWNED at
Robert Moses State Park Saturday; CERULEAN WARBLERS in Central and Prospect
Parks and at Southards Pond, and such other species as WORM-EATING,
BAY-BREASTED, CAPE MAY, HOODED and twenty or so other species. And there
was also an extralimital TOWNSEND’S WARBLER at Bashakill in Sullivan County
last Saturday.

Over a dozen SUMMER TANAGERS this week included birds in Central and
Prospect Parks, Forest Park, with two there Wednesday, Alley Pond Park and
Hempstead Lake State Park, Cunningham Park, the Bronx Zoo, Jones Beach West
End, and a couple on eastern Long Island.

BLUE GROSBEAKS too had a good week, with birds in Central Park, Owls Head
and Calvert Vaux Parks in Brooklyn, Jones Beach West End and Marshlands
Conservancy in Rye.

Some arrivals noted this week have included COMMON NIGHTHAWK, ROSEATE TERN,
YELLOW-BILLED and BLACK-BILLED CUCKOOS, OLIVE-SIDED, WILLOW and
YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHERS, GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH and SALTMARSH SPARROW.

An EVENING GROSBEAK visited the Central Park feeders Wednesday, and some
PINE SISKINS and PURPLE FINCHES are still around.

A VESPER SPARROW was at Floyd Bennett Field Sunday.

To phone in reports, on Long Island call Tony Lauro at (631) 734 4126 or
call Tom Burke at (914) 967-4922 and leave a message.

This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Summer Tanager
At around 12:30 there was an adult male Summer Tanager along the Big Woods trail in Southampton. This trail is also known as the Marguerite Crabbe Greeff Wildlife Sanctuary.

In case anyone chooses to take a look, I marked two “Xs” on the trail with sticks where the bird was, about 100 yards from where it intersects with a trail down to the Scallop Pond marsh.

Should you decide to continue down towards the marsh, make sure you have your permethrin-treated clothing on.

The Prothonotary Warbler found this morning by Rose Antos was re-found by
Sue Barth along the creek behind the chapel. It put on a good show for me

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Black Vulture low over Edgemont H.S.
While passing by Edgemont H.S. I noticed a Black Vulture low over the school.  I have seen a pair of them fairly regularly in the vicinity over the last few years so they must be breeding somewhere nearby.  I would love to find the nest.  Very cool.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Manhattan, NYC 5/4 thru 5/8 (Central Park Evening Grosbeak, E. Whip-poor-will, Kentucky Warbler, many other migrants)
A breeding-plumaged male Painted Bunting was photographed in St. Lawrence County, NY on Tuesday, May 7th. See: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S55985451 <https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S55985451>

Prothonotary Warbler and Cerulean Warbler found Wednesday May 8th at a location in Suffolk County NY by Doug Futuyma are obviously great sightings. There also is a report of a male Prothonotary at a location in Nassau County, NY the same day. Also notable for Suffolk County on May 8th was a sighting of Red-headed Woodpecker in habitat suitable to potential nesting. These are all potential breeders in that county although a Cerulean Warbler attempting to nest there would be *exceptional*. However, that latter species may show a trend to moving &/or expanding its breeding range to the north & east of currently understood limits. Please exercise the utmost caution & restraint around all possible nesting or breeding areas.

This has been noted to some other lists: there have now been at least 3 documented Townsend’s Warbler sightings in the northeast this spring, with 2 of those 3 being in NY state, the 3rd in eastern Massachusetts. That species also has been seen in multiple locations in eastern Colorado and at least once in western N. Dakota this spring. These sightings in addition to the Townsend’s Warbler which overwintered at Trenton, New Jersey (which was last reported March 11 of this year). A species well worth keeping eyes -& ears- open for as spring goes on.

It was notable that just as a very rare for the region (!) Common Greenshank had been seen at Timber Point, Suffolk County NY, a Wilson’s Plover was also being documented at Ninigret Pond (Charlestown) on Rhode Island. And, yes, ye olde Black-necked Stilt at the same Nassau County NY site as in recent days. See note, w/ link, at the bottom of this post on a rare-there LESSER Nighthawk documented in Ontario, Canada.


May 4th - 8th, 2019 (Saturday to Wednesday)
Manhattan & New York County all in N.Y. City

A male Evening Grosbeak came in to the bird feeder array in the Central Park Ramble during Wednesday May 8th, and was photographed & seen by multiple observers. While quite unexpected for May there, this is not an unprecedented occurrence in this month and in this park in the month of May. It has been some years (about twenty+) since the species was seen this far into spring there. Also seen to Wed., 5/8 in Manhattan were some Pine Siskins and Purple Finches. Multiple Red-breasted Nuthtaches have been found in recent days, in accordance with their semi-regular spring movements.

Other migrants of strong interest on Wednesday in Central Park included an Eastern Whip-poor-will roosting in the Ramble, with multiple observers, and a Kentucky Warbler near Central Park West, southeast of the West 81st Street entrance & (crosstown) Transverse Road, also with multiple observers, this at least the 2nd Kentucky Warbler of the spring in Central (an earlier one was photographed in the same park’s north woods). [also N.B., the flight of Kentucky Warblers reached to at least s.-coastal Maine, with one of that species seen in Portland Maine also on Wed., 5/8 & there have been other New England sightings of the species in the last few days.]

At least 2 dozen warbler species were seen in Manhattan just on Wed. 5/8. How much of this was fresh arrival, and how much simply involved more ongoing efforts by many observers, is not entirely clear. There has been movement, and much of that nocturnal (& some diurnal) migration has included plenty of fly-over moving on beyond Manhattan & some well beyond N.Y. City - but that also is the norm for much of migration in May.

There have been a perhaps-unprecedented number of Summer Tanagers observed in Manhattan alone this spring (to say nothing of the multiples from the rest of New York City!) with at least 8 different individuals by now, & more likely into double-digits, and this is by only May 8th and just for Manhattan island. This species is possibly going to be discovered breeding more & more in N.Y state than it has previously been known to.

A bright adult male BLUE Grosbeak in Central Park on Monday, 5/6 had at least 100 observers - this at the same bird-feeder array in the Ramble which 2 days later was hosting a bright male Evening Grosbeak!

On Sunday, 5/5 at least 4 Bonaparte’s Gulls were seen, along with a dozen or more Laughing Gulls, at Governors Island, in New York harbor & politically a part of New York County (as is Manhattan); these sightings & many many others, such as 22 Common Terns, from NYC Audubon guide Gabriel Willow, with other observers also there on the day.

Mourning Warbler sightings so far in Central Park have included at least 2 individual males, at least one of those singing a bit - from Tuesday, 5/7, and an earlier male Mourning on Sunday, 5/5. The species has been found in low numbers somewhat earlier than typically in at least several locations in NY state by now. This has completed the spring-arrivals list of all regularly-occurring migrant warbler species found annually in Manhattan, although of course many more individuals of a variety of species already found this year will still be passing through this month, & some late stragglers even to June. This excludes Yellow-breasted Chat, which is in a somewhat-undecided taxonomic category lately (for now, the family Icteriidae was raised to include only that one species, called monotypic, but this could change again) but includes 34 species of the warblers of the Americas.

Recent Cerulean Warbler sightings from Central Park include one female well photographed in the north end of that park on Sunday, 5/5; this bird also had multiple observers.

A sighting of Prothonotary Warbler has been confirmed from Central Park on Saturday, May 4th. A Yellow-throated Warbler was again reported at the Central Park Ramble from Monday 5/6.

Flycatchers appearing in the last several days have included Olive-sided, & some additional Empidonax [genus] with at least a few of the latter giving calls indicating Willow Flycatcher, as well as ongoing Least Flycatcher; also more regular have been Great Crested Flycatcher, Eastern Kingbird, and Eastern Wood-Pewee. There were also still E. Phoebes moving thru into Wed. 5/8.

Gray-cheeked Thrushes, in minimal numbers so far, have joined the earlier-to-arrive Catharus [genus] thrushes including Hermit, Wood, Veery, and Swainson’s, the latter thrush increasing greatly since a week prior.

Bobolinks have come through, some photographed, with some at least as early as Saturday, 5/4 and plenty more moving thru in days since. This includes multiple individuals passing through Central Park, as well as a number of other sites both on Manhattan island, and adjacent isles also in New York County. Sparrows seen in Manhattan still include moderate numbers of White-throated Sparrow & other species, but aside from White-crowned & Lincoln’s Sparrows, many species have been diminishing lately. Eastern Towhee (a rather rare Manhattan breeder) also has continued in now-diminished numbers.

Several Common Loons had appeared on the Central Park reservoir this spring, and at least one now in breeding plumage has continued there. Bufflehead in Central Park thru May 8th is not unprecedented, but is getting a bit late for the location. Also present at the C.P. reservoir were at least several lingering Ruddy Ducks. A Golden-crowned Kinglet lingered or straggled through to at least Friday, May 4th, in Central Park. Now quite late, both Brown Creeper, and Winter Wren were still being seen to Wed., May 8th at Central Park. Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers have lingered on to at least Wed., 5/8 in multiple N.Y. City locations, & may occur there even later into May.

Some Cedar Waxwings were moving even in April this spring, but more have begun to show up since Saturday, 5/4, in & flying over Manhattan. In addition to the Eastern Whip-poor-will, at least a few Common Nighthawks have been seen in & over Manhattan this week. It is worth a note that there was an occurence of a (sadly, deceased) LESSER Nighthawk discovered at the Long Point Banding and Research Station (LPBO) in Ontario, CANADA - see the brighter red entry from May 8 (log): https://www.bsc-eoc.org/longpoint/index.jsp?targetpg=lpbosight&lang=E <https://www.bsc-eoc.org/longpoint/index.jsp?targetpg=lpbosight&lang=E>

--
Also seen in numbers lately, and particularly so on Wed., 5/8 have been American Lady butterflies (Vanessa virginiensis) with many dozens seen, at many disparate locations; many of these have been trending or clearly moving in a northerly direction. Also seen have been Painted Lady butterflies (Vanessa cardui), but in far lower numbers, at far lesser frequency, as well as a number of other butterfly species that show migratory trends, and some that do not. Many other arthropods have been observed in & around N.Y. City of late; trees & shrubs have had big gains in leaf-out in less than a week’s time, and many which have April & May blooms locally have completed or nearly completed blossoming, as have most of the local "early spring" native flowering plants.

good May birding,

Subject: [nysbirds-l] BBC Evening Presentation: Tessa Boase Mrs Pankhurst's Purple Feather
*Note: This event meets in Classroom C at the Prospect Park Zoo. Please see
below for details.*


*Tuesday May 14 7PM*

TESSA BOASE PRESENTS: MRS PANKHURST’S PURPLE FEATHER: FASHION, FURY AND
FEMINISM – WOMEN’S FIGHT FOR CHANGE

For half a century, from the 1870s to the 1920s, women on both sides of the
Atlantic were gripped by a fashion craze that decreed all hats should be
laden with feathers. Not just feathers, but wings, bird and whole bodies of
birds – often several birds at a time. Species the world over were slowly
brought to the brink of extinction, and all for the sake of millinery.
Campaigning on behalf of the birds was a small band of angry woman with a
splendidly simple goal. They were going to stamp out the fashion for
feathers in hats.

The ‘feather fight’, as it became known, was bitter, vicious and
un-sisterly. Wearers of the ‘bird hat’ were attacked as narcissists and
slaughterers. Edwardian fashion victims hit back, calling their female
critics ‘plumage cranks’ and ‘feather faddists’. Why shouldn’t emancipated
women wear what they wanted? Leading the battle in Britain was a fearsome
woman who has not been remembered by history, and yet for 50 years was the
driving force behind the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB),
today Britain’s biggest conservation charity. Her name was Etta Lemon.
Where she lead in1889, the Audubon Society would follow.

When social historian Tessa Boase told the RSPB she wanted to write their
early story, they refused to let her revisit their archives. To a former
investigative journalist and Oxford English graduate, this was a challenge
she could not resist . . . Join her to hear the intriguing untold story of
women, birds, hats – and votes. After the talk, Tessa will be signing
copies of her book, Mrs Pankhurst’s Purple Feather: Fashion, Fury and
Feminism – Women’s Fight for Change.

Note: This event will meet in Classroom C at the Prospect Park Zoo.

Date: 5/8/19 5:29 am
From: Brendan Fogarty <bnf25...>
Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] Radar
Gus and all,

For predicting local movements I would recommend referring to a more local
scale radar. Your link shower strong movement last night to our south,
which is indeed an indicator of birds on the ground the next morning here,
but it is not the only one. Checking the below link this morning, I could
see a small line of showers crawling by central New Jersey and a bird-sign
shadow to it’s north. Cape May Bird Observatory posted on Facebook last
night of possible fallout conditions in that area.

http://weather.rap.ucar.edu/radar/

I usually keep all the setting except “Loop Duration” which I usually set
to 6 or 8 hours to see the whole night. Then click a station: OKX is on
Long Island, DIX is by Philadelphia. Both can be helpful to predict
activity near NYC, since these stations are more “accurate” within a
shorter radius, where the radar beam is bouncing off airborn objects closer
to the ground. Activity over the New York bight just before dawn is a good
sign for new arrivals; activity over the Long Island Sound only is a good
sign for net departures, which is closer to what was visible this AM. Wind
was also northerly (but pretty light, not necessarily inhibitive).

I visited Crocheron Park in Bayside yesterday evening and this morning and
there was no noticeable turnover whatsoever. An Olive-sided Flycatcher was
there, perching up near the west end of the pond, yesterday only.

Best,
Brendan Fogarty

I believe the best indicator of new birds landing in NYC is the radar activities above the city in the early morning hours, before sunrise. Radar activities in the evening hours, before midnight, indicate birds leaving the city.
There are activities this early morning which suggest new birds in the city.
Check the time between 1 and 4 am on this page:

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Fish Crow and other sightings
This evening I was tending to a stunned Ovenbird when I had a Fish Crow in
the company of American Crows fly over my yard - an unexpected surprise!
The Ovenbird appeared to recover, and eventually flew off after 20 minutes
or so. The whole lot of crows flew off towards downtown, with several birds
heading north. This morning I had at least 3 Rusty Blackbirds calling from
my neighbor's yard - another surprise!

A checklist for this evening is here:

From: Glenn Quinn <glennq...>
Subject: [nysbirds-l] Yellow-throated Warbler, Hauppauge (Suffolk)
My yard in Hauppauge, within earshot (literally) of the Long Island
Expressway, doesn't exactly overflow with neotropical migrants in the
spring. However, the budding oak trees in the neighborhood do regularly
attract such common species as Northern Parula, Myrtle, and the occasional
Black-throated Green Warbler. This evening has been typical with one or two
Parulas singing along with a Myrtle.

Around 7:15, while finishing some yard work, I decided to put the glass on
the singing Parula one last time before I went inside. I found it quickly
and then saw movement in the same tree of an obviously larger warbler. It
turned out, bizarrely, to be a Yellow-throated Warbler. I spent 20 minutes
with it and was able to get all the obvious field marks of this species:
brilliant yellow throat, heavy black sideburns, white spot behind the
sideburns, white eyeline, white wingbars, blue-gray uppers, and large/long
bill. Other than the mall, I can't think of a more unlikely place to see
this species on Long Island. It pays to take one last look before you go
inside!!!





Cheers,



Glenn

Our regular Audubon walk went on in the rain. Our binoculars were swamped but we managed 9 warbler species and 40 altogether before the rain soaked us.
Birds were low and close to the entrance to Hunter Island. The rain on the binocular eyepieces made identification tough and I believe there were a few more warbler species, including at least one Golden Wing but it was too difficult to positively identify.
Thanks to John Sheridan and “Bronx” Brendan Keogh for their sharp eyes.

Apparently due to the ponding on the golf course from all the rain,
electric carts were not allowed on the course and this discouraged a lot
of golfers from coming. There were some walking the course when I left
at 7:30 but many fewer than expected.

That said, the bird flew off and did not return as of 9:00 (last news I
have). I would not give up on it though, and any news positive or
negative would be appreciated as there are folks coming from 5+ hours
away to try for it.

If you do try for it, please, please, park in the parking lot by the
clubhouse or at the marsh and not along the roadway, and please, please
do not walk onto the course. Viewing has been good from the roadway and
upper lot, and we want to maintain a good rapport with the golfers and
the cops.

On the marsh at the end of the road there are a variety of shorebirds,
Glossy Ibis, and a few singing Seaside Sparrows among the usual
denizens.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Common Greenshank Info

The Common Greenshank continued at Timber Point when I left at 18:30, feeding productively on large worms and other invertebrates on the flooded golf course. Birders arriving at the golf course tomorrow morning should park at the main parking lot. The favored puddles are immediately east of the parking lot, south of a water hazard, and northeast of the main building (the same puddles favored by last spring's Wood Sandpiper). They can be viewed from the edge of the main entrance road, between the parking lot and the building.

Tomorrow the weather will be better and golfers will be out. I think the bird is likely to be present in the early morning, but I fear that it will inevitably fly out at some point, and with golfers active on the course, it might not return. Thus, it might be prudent for those serious about seeing it to commit to an early arrival, rather than awaiting news of its continuing presence before heading over.

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] Common Greenshank Info
Just to add to Shai’s post regarding the directions to the Greenshank, please do not, for any reason, walk out into the golf course. If the bird is present, birding from the edge of the roadway provides excellent visibility and will keep disturbance of the bird and of the golfers and park personnel to a minimum.

I know it's where the wood was but for people who didn't see that one is the site near the parking lot?  Just in case it's not obvious by birders being there.  Thanks.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Georgica Black-necked Stilt-no
I took a wet and windy walk down the beach to the Georgica Inlet but had no lucking finding the previously reported Black-necked Stilt. Viewing conditions were far from ideal.

I also tried Georgica Cove Hollow to no avail.

This was between 5:30 and 6:45.

I was there from about 3:15 to 6:00.  Migration was good but photography difficult.
The highlights were 13 species of warbler, including:  female Hooded, both Blue-winged and Golden-winged, Nashville, Worm-eating.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] How Not to Write Up an ebird Rarity Report:101
I'm kind of getting tired and frustrated with the quality of the comments/reports submitted to ebird. Below is a classic case that should be tagged, monitored,filtered, whatever you want to call it by ebird admin people. I see a lot of reports on rarities and the comments go something like: "My 436th life bird for North America! It was great, we just stood there and watched the bird walk left, then walk right, then it called a few times, then my friend Jane said wow, did you see that? Then it flew away. It was identified by our really cool friend and excellent birder, Joe Smith, who is familiar with this species because he saw one once in Alaska. Thanks Joe! You're the best!  Totally MEGA!"  
I'm beginning to glaze over when I see reports of the quality above and below, reported in ebird, which are becoming all too common Then there was a report this morning of a Mistle Thrush from Ontario. The Comment was: It looked plump, maybe a young bird." What? Garbage. 
 I Think ebird staff should demand higher standards than gobildy gook pap. Where's their QA people on this? I astirisked the names and "broke" the links to protect the innocent, and not so innocent......... See below.


White-collared Swift (Streptoprocne zonaris) (1)
- Reported May 01, 2019 17:45 by ***** ******
- Englewood,Charlotte County.FL, Charlotte, Florida
- Map: http://maps.google.com/ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=26.9371612,-82.3678802&ll=26.9371612,-82.3678802
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S5581462
- Comments: "**** ****** and I were enjoying a nice warbler fall out at this location when Jeff said "Get on this bird!!" I looked up with the naked eye, and saw a  large, dark, long pointed winged, slightly forked tailed bird gliding towards us. I thought why do I want to get on a nighthawk?At that point **** said "That's a fuckin' White-collared Swift!!! " The bird zoomed behind some Australian Pines. Then it rose up quickly, at least 60 ft, at this point I got the swift in bins, as it did a circle over us, before it went back down behind the pines headed east. Jeff and I ran full speed to the street where we saw no sign of the swift.When I got the look in bins I could clearly see the broad white band going across the breast. The swift was massive and all dark other than the breast band from head to tail. I noticed  very long primaries that swept back toward a martin like, slightly forked tail. **** and I stood there dumbfounded. This is a N.American, never mind FL,MEGA!!! LIFAH!!!!"

What looked to me to be a different Summer Tanager visited the water feature

in a northern section of Alley Pond Park. So there are few to go around in

[~BEGIN RBA TAPE~]

Greetings! This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, May 3, 2019 at
9:00 pm.

The highlights of today's tape are BLACK-NECKED STILT, WHITE-FACED IBIS,
BLACK-HEADED GULL, HARLEQUIN DUCK, PROTHONOTARY, YELLOW-THROATED, KENTUCKY,
GOLDEN-WINGED and other WARBLERS, SUMMER TANAGER, BLUE GROSBEAK and spring
migrants.

Finally catching a somewhat disguised break in the weather pattern, our
region was treated to an exciting influx of landbirds on Thursday. Prior
to that, though, were a few nice birds to keep things moving.

A BLACK-NECKED STILT has continued its welcome stay in the Point Lookout
area, now remaining in the marsh off the Lido Beach Passive Natural Area
through today, this on the north side of Lido Boulevard a little west of
the Loop Causeway.

Out at Heckscher State Park a WHITE-FACED IBIS spotted on Tuesday was
followed by two different individuals found Wednesday, neither in full
breeding plumage, but one certainly closer to that than the other. The
duller of the two was also seen Thursday and today, feeding with a varying
number of GLOSSY IBIS in rain puddles and on the surrounding lawn adjacent
to Parking Field 6, the IBIS cycling between this site and the nearby
marshes. Also at Heckscher a CASPIAN TERN flew by Wednesday.

Most attention now, though, is being focused on landbird migration–the
regional WARBLER total for the past week has risen to 33 species, many now
in decent numbers thanks to Thursday’s arrivals. Among the rarer species,
a PROTHONOTARY WARBLER was seen down in the Battery Park area in southern
Manhattan last Saturday, and both Central and Prospect Parks enjoyed a
YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER in mid-week, with another found in Avalon Park in
Stony Brook last Saturday, while one also continues in the Bayard Cutting

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Bryant Park Yellowthroat "study"
An hour in Bryant Park at midday (we miss you, Alan D!) was quieter than
many other urban parks, but did reveal three Ovenbirds, Swainson's and
Hermit Thrush, abundant Catbirds, Song, White-throated, and Chipping
Sparrow, and (including the plantings around the library) at least nine
Common Yellowthroats...seven of which were male. Adding the two seen later
on the closed lawn in Madison Square Park, both male, today's sightings
continued the multiyear trend I've observed of a seemingly disproportionate
ratio of male to female Yellowthroats in these small Midtown parks. Nothing
but speculative reasons why, however.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Manhattan, NYC 5/2 & 5/3 (Thurs., & Friday w/multiple Cerulean Warblers)
Worth noting that the Nassau County, NY Black-necked Stilt was continuing at the Lido Beach Passive Nature Area on Friday, 3 May, along with other, more-expected species there.

Manhattan (& other New York County sites), N.Y. City

Friday, 3 May, 2019 -

Multiple male CERULEAN Warblers have been found in Central Park, and at least one male Cerulean was also at Riverside Park’s “forever wild” sanctuary. For the Central Park northwest woods area sightings, thanks go in part[icular] to Professor Sara Kross PhD, & Patrick McKenzie, Vijay Ramesh, & Shailee Shah & others of The Dept. of Ecology, Evolution, & Environmental Biology (E3B) at Columbia University, and to Ursula Mitra, Malcolm Morris & John Wittenberg, and others on-scene for the discoveries & getting word out on the north woods (Central Park) Cerulean[s], as seen later by others.

Also, at least one male Cerulean was near the Azalea Pond of Central Park’s Ramble. There is a possibility that still more have been spotted in some other Manhattan locations; I also found a singing Cerulean contemporaneously in the north edge of the Riverside Park sanctuary, this near West 119th St. just west of Riverside Drive; this bird had been singing but seemed to take a break in its song repetitions by about 11 a.m., & I thank Kyu Lee for getting me to bird this area in Riverside a bit more thoroughly. There are at least 25 Warbler species for Manhattan so far on Friday, and more might still be discovered & reported.

It’s worth noting that Cerulean Warblers also were being seen in at least 3 other boroughs (counties) in N.Y. City, and hopefully, the Bronx (county) will be able to make it a perfect "5 for 5".

Multiple PINE SISKINS are being seen in Manhattan; reports include some in several areas in Central Park; I found one feeding in the Riverside Park sanctuary area (high, but offering better views than the singing Cerulean Warbler there had). Purple Finches also continue to Friday.

Thursday, 2 May -

The below is a very small sample of many areas in Manhattan where a wide variety migrants were found.

The lingering adult male Summer Tanager at Clinton Community Garden on West 48th Street (between Ninth & Tenth Avenues - same tanager still present to Friday, 5/3) also had Lincoln’s and White-crowned Sparrows along with multiple White-throated Sparrows; thanks to NYC Audubon guide Gabriel Willow for the report & sparrow photos from Thursday p.m. and to others for prior & further reports from that garden space.

Chelsea Piers Park (north of West 24th St. along the Hudson river) was busy with migrants on Thursday, among finds there were 6 warbler species including Prairie & Palm Warblers, Scarlet Tanagers, Baltimore Orioles, Wood Thrush, Swamp, Field, Chipping & White-throated Sparrows and more; thanks to Linda LaBella (who visits that site often) for the report (which included 33 species in all for a rather linear and well-planted riverfront park). On Friday 5/3, L. LaBella reports Red-breasted Nuthatch and Cape May Warbler there, among 27 species in all for an under-one-hour visit.

Tompkins Square Park in the East Village area of lower Manhattan was good for a wide variety of migrants on Thursday, including Great Crested Flycatcher, Blue-headed Vireo, at least 3 species of Catharus [genus] thrushes, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, multiple Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Indigo Bunting, Baltimore Oriole, & at least 8 species of Warblers including Chestnut-sided, Black-throated Blue, & multiples of the other warbler spp.; thanks to NYC Audubon guide Jeffrey Ward for the report (which included 32 species in all for this neighborhood park) & to others for prior reports from there.

Inwood Hill Park (in northern Manhattan) had at least 19 reported warbler species on Thursday (including Worm-eating, Chestnut-sided, Magnolia, Blackburnian, Nashville, Pine, Palm, Prairie, & other Warblers), & many other migrants in addition to Yellow-crowned Night-Heron. Thanks to Danny Karlson, Nathan O’Reilly, and Hilary Russ for individual reports from that large & diverse park, which contains among the oldest and tallest trees on Manhattan island.

good May birding,

Tom Fiore

Subject: [nysbirds-l] 30th warbler sp., Central Park NYC 5/2
Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City - May 2, 2019

Thursday (May 2nd) brought at least 30 warbler species to just this one city park, with Bay-breasted Warbler also added to the list of those seen (& photographed) there. This warbler tally is without adding Cerulean Warbler, although with sightings of the latter species in 3 of the 5 counties of N.Y. City (Queens, Kings, & Richmond Counties) on the day, it is plausible that one of them also dropped in on Thursday, somewhere in Manhattan &/or New York County.

Also, a second adult male Summer Tanager continued at Central Park’s north end, along with the one at Clinton Community Gardens, in Manhattan.

This migration fall-out was perhaps most concentrated in south-coastal Connecticut, but clearly was observed in much of N.Y. City (& in other areas).

good May birding,

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Raven flying above Selden
I spotted, or should I say initially heard, a lone raven flying west over
the parking lot of the Selden Library. His unmistakable call and
spade-shaped tail gave me a huge smile. He was in stark contrast vocally
and visually to the handful of crows which were also seen a few minutes
later in the same area. My corvid-loving daughters are thrilled about this
:)

Happy birding everyone!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Pelham Bay Park, Bronx
When I opened my front door to get my newspaper at about 8:00am, there was an Ovenbird and a Magnolia Warbler in the tree just 15 feet away. In my yard was another Ovenbird, so I knew we had some good movement into the park.

I rushed home from my appointment and began birding at about 10:30am. The light was poor then, but the trees near Turtle Cove were full of warblers. There were several Parulas, Black-throated Green, Yellow Warblers, many Yellow-rumps, a Magnolia. In the same tree were both Orchard and Baltimore Oriole, Warbling Vireos, Goldfinches. There were too many birds for this one birder to see and ID all at once. Nearby, Greater Yellowlegs were in the puddles near Orchard Beach along with a Solitary Sandpiper. House finches, Savannah, Song and Chipping Sparrows were flitting on the grass. There were multiple Tree and Northern Rough-wing swallows and a nearby Killdeer doing its wounded wing routine.

I was thinking how there were probably 150 birders in Central Park this morning, and I was likely only person birding the city’s largest park.

How many more species would be found here with some more birders?

Come visit!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Central Park, NYC - Thursday, 5/2 - Blue Grosbeak, 29+ warbler spp.; Summer Tanager @W.48th Street, & more
Thursday, 2nd May, 2019 -
Manhattan, N.Y. City and New York County, including Central Park & other parks

A Kentucky Warbler was found in the north end of Central Park - please NOTE - any & all amplified sounds without a valid permit, anywhere in this park, are prohibited by law - signage is posted. Give this, and all migrants a chance to feed and rest as they require. The Kentucky Warbler has been photographed & is sure to attract more birders' attention in the area.

An adult male SUMMER Tanager is continuing at the Clinton Community Garden on West 48th Street in Manhattan, located between Ninth & Tenth Avenues; this tanager was seen very early & rather easily even thru a fence (locked up at sunrise hour), & may be sought in trees near the beehive boxes at the west edge of this nice garden space.

An adult male BLUE Grosbeak was found in Central Park on Thursday. Central Park alone has had at least 29 Warbler species on the day, with fairly good numbers of some expected species. A singing male GOLDEN-WINGED Warbler was continuing in the Ramble, and also seen there were YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER, with a possible 2nd of that species also being reported.

Other warbler species just from Central Park include these: Blue-winged Warbler, Tennessee Warbler (multiple), Nashville Warbler (multiple), Northern Parula (many), Yellow Warbler (many) Chestnut-sided Warbler (multiple), Magnolia Warbler (multiple), Cape May Warbler (multiple; i.e. more than 3 locations & more than 6 individuals), Black-throated Blue Warbler (multiple) Yellow-rumped [Myrtle] Warbler (many), Black-throated Green Warbler (multiple), Blackburnian Warbler (multiple), Pine Warbler (few, as would be expected by now), Prairie Warbler (multiple), Palm Warbler (relatively few but in double-digits), Blackpoll Warbler (at least several, not unusual in such a big push of migrants in early May), Black-and-white Warbler (many). American Redstart (multiple, but still not many), Worm-eating Warbler (mutiple; in more than 3 locations), Ovenbird (many), Northern Waterthrush (multiple, but still not that many), Louisiana Waterthrush (at least several, not yet that ‘late’ here), Common Yellowthroat (multiple), Hooded Warbler (at least several, & now including females), Wilson's Warbler (at least several), & Canada Warbler (still in low no’s.) - & there are as-yet unconfirmed reports of at least one or 2 additional spp. of Warblers in Manhattan, one of those being poss. Cerulean.

At least a few PINE SISKINS continued in Central Park, with sightings in Strawberry Fields; also more of Purple Finch, in multiple locations.

Other migrant species increasing included Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Empidonax [genus] Flycatchers (so far, Least being the 1 confirmed to species), swallows, 5 Vireo species with Blue-headed & Warbling Vireos still the most common, Catharus thrushes with many more Veery, & still good numbers of Hermit, plus some Wood & Swainson’s Thrushes, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, & many many others. It’s notable that already, a number of females of some species (Scarlet Tanager, just one example) are arriving.

I checked out Governors Island (in New York harbor just south of Manhattan island, & politically a part of New York County) for just 90 minutes in late morning & it was busy mostly at the Nolan Park section (not far from the free-ferry landing - ferries are daily, once an hour on weekdays, every 30 minutes on weekends) with examples of migration such as 8 (eight) male Rose-breasted Grosbeaks in a single large tree, & many Veery, Hermit Thrush, 14 spp. of Warblers, multiple Indigo Buntings, & etc., but NOT an island-smothering fallout. There were also some nice migrants at Battery Park, & at least a few along the Hudson River greenway, in some spots.

Many migrants were being found in a lot of other sections of Manhattan from the north end of the island to the east & west edges, south to the southern tip. While hardly an historic fall-out, it’s a welcome arrival of numbers of many species. More is likely to be found in the next few days…

good May birding,

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Turkey Hunting Season is on.
Just a reminder: Turkey hunting season opened yesterday, May 1st through much of New York State, except NYC and Long Island.

Hunting is permitted mornings from one half before sunrise until noon.

Turkey hunters are usually well camouflaged and usually stay motionless employing a variety of turkey calls.

Check local regulations and be aware that you may not be alone in the woods.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Manhattan, NYC 5/1 (Summer Tanagar, Blue Grosbeak, Yellow-throated Warbler, & other migrants)
Manhattan, N.Y. City -

Wednesday, 1st of May:

An adult male Summer Tanager continued at the Clinton Community Garden, on West 48th St. - between Ninth & Tenth Avenues. It could again be viewed through a fence, even when this garden space was locked. Also continuing (in northern Manhattan) was a female-plumaged Blue Grosbeak, near the Cloisters within Fort Tryon Park.

A Yellow-throated Warbler (male, sometimes singing) found by A. Collerton in the Central Park Ramble was also enjoyed by many later observers. (Thank you, Anthony!) Overall, my own impression (mostly from throughout Central Park, from 110 Street to 60 Street, & from Fifth Ave. to Central Park West in 8+ hours) was that while a fair amount of fresh migration may have occurred on Tuesday night, there was also a lot of exodus.

Species-diversity was still fairly good, & many observers were able to add “first-of” birds to personal lists. At first, I had thought that numbers of Yellow-rumped [Myrtle] Warbler were not that high, given the May 1 date, but after walking 6-7 miles through most of the 1 park, I’d seen many hundreds and while scattered all around, this at least showed some influx, after a recent period when this species seemed low in numbers. (there also have been other days when numbers of that warbler were fairly common, however, and that species has a tendency for onward migration on mornings with fog or drizzles, as has been the usual of late.) The numbers of certain warbler species on Wed. 5/1 seemed to have increased just in Central Park, such as Blackburnian (8+ park-wide), Black-throated Green (25+ park-wide), & Ovenbird (30++ park-wide).

Also almost certainly increased were Scarlet Tanager (with at least 4 in one large oak tree at one time just n. of the Central Park boathouse cafe in the Ramble area, & 15+ park-wide), and also Veery (25+ park-wide). In addition, even if heard singing or chattering far more than seen, Baltimore Oriole were found in most parts of the park (20++ park-wide). Also evident was an additional surge of Purple Finch, with some small flocks of 8-10 (& totals of 40+ park-wide). At least a few Pine Siskins also were in several locations, often near or with American Goldfinch which are starting to mass, and no longer most-common at or around feeders (many have been high in the trees, along with plenty of other migrants with the inclement or cloudy weather). A species some think a bit uncommon (but not, once peak migration is upon us), Yellow-throated Vireo was also in fairly good number (7 - 8+, park-wide) on Wednesday. Blue-headed & Warbling Vireos continued in numbers, the latter species a Manhattan breeder as well as a common migrant. Red-eyed Vireo have yet to show in their great numbers.

The most interesting bird I found in Central Park (for the May 1st date) was a single female Golden-crowned Kinglet, at the Hallett Sanctuary - a bit late but hardly unprecedented. Ruby-crowned Kinglets are still numerous, & far more expected for early May here.

good month of May birding,

Tom Fiore

Subject: Re:[nysbirds-l] [ebirdsnyc] radar
There is a significant number of birds landing in tristate area this morning. Radar starting at 1 am is showing. I thin this is going to be a good day for birding.

https://radar.weather.gov/radar.php?rid=okx&product=N0R&overlay=11101111&loop=yes

The black out in NJ is clear here:

But either way, now that we are in May, it’s best to get out when you can. Because even on a day with mediocre radar, if it’s May, there’s always the possibility of amazing birding.

SATURDAY, MAY 4 – JBNHS ULSTER COUNTY BIG SIT
JBNHS’ annual Big Sit is also our BIG fundraiser for the year. In the past money has been raised to support Glenn Proudfoot’s fine research with N. Saw-whet Owls, numerous enhancements at SGNWR, and Where to Bird in Ulster County panels now located at three locations about the county.

This year the Great Vly Sit will again support Glenn Proudfoot’s awesome N. Saw-whet Owl research work right here in Ulster County.

Kingston Point Sit is raising money to support the wonderful New York State Young Birders Club.

Galeville (SGNWR) and Ellenville High School Sits are joining forces for a great cause, the continued financial support of the Friends of the Shawangunk Grasslands National Wildlife Refuge. Please contact Donna Seymour (<dseymour66...> ) to plan and schedule your shift at Galeville.

Hinchey Catskill Visitors Center Sit will be birding to install and maintain bird feeders and a Where to Bird in Ulster County panel.  Please contact Dave Hayes (<vireo44...> )

Bowdery Yard will be birding to pad our woodland species total.
  
Donations can be based on a pledge per species or flat donation, either to support a specific location or if you are feeling extra generous a donation of the cumulative total of all sits.  . Please make checks payable to JBNHS and note desired sit you’d like to support. Send in donations to Treasurer Lin Fagan 281 West Chestnut Street Kingston NY 12401 or follow this link to use paypal

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Request for assistance – song recordings of migrating Mourning Warblers
It is year 5 of this project and I am once again writing to request your
help and participate in a Citizens Science Project that involves
recording migrating Mourning Warbler songs.Our lab is trying to
determine what role song can play in understanding migratory
connectivity in this species.We are interested in whether different song
populations of the Mourning Warbler (Western, Eastern, Nova Scotia,
Newfoundland) migrate together or separately to their respective
breeding areas.Here is a link to a map with previous years’ results
based on recordings from over 100 birders.

https://mowasongmapper.weebly.com/mapping-songs-with-google-maps.html

All you need is a smartphone with a voice recording app and some
luck.Videos with recordings are also helpful.The web page link below
describes the project and how to make recordings on your Smartphone in
more detail.Please send song recordings to the Mourning Warbler Sound
Lab (jpitocch AT anselm.edu).

https://mowasongmapper.weebly.com/

There is also a link to a recent national Audubon Society story on this
research.

Subject: RE: [nysbirds-l] White-faced Ibises Heckscher SP Suffolk Co.
The two White-faced Ibises continued in the flooded picnic area when I left around 10:00.

Both are interesting-looking and not quite typical. One individual, the one Pat found yesterday I think, has very limited white facial feathering and not-very-bright (but definitely pink-red, especially in good light) facial skin and eye. The second individual, found by Pat this morning, is more typical-looking in these respects. Both show decidedly pink-red ankles and gray bills--appropriate for White-faced Ibis.

Interestingly, the duller-faced bird is very large and very tawny-colored on the neck and body--classic White-faced--whereas the brighter-faced bird looks much more like a Glossy Ibis in terms of structure and body plumage. My best assessment is that both are within the range of expected variation for relatively dull adult White-faced Ibises.

Last evening I photographed (poorly, as is my usual wont) a White-faced
Ibis in non breeding plumage--no white borders around the pink eye and
facial skin, and legs pink only around the "knees", feeding with 17
Glossy Ibis in the flooded picnic area of Field 6.

This morning I checked again; there were at least 30 ibis feeding
actively in the puddles, and I immediately picked out a White-faced,
this one showing moderately distinct white borders on the face, and
brighter pink legs than yesterday's bird. I had to race off to work but
alerted Shai Mitra to be looking out for a second bird when he arrived
shortly after. Shai did indeed find what is certainly yesterday's bird
in addition to the better marked individual.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Manhattan, NYC Tues., 4/30 (2 Summer Tanagers; more migrants)
Manhattan, N.Y. City - & some sightings from outlying isles also in New York County
Mostly Tuesday, 30 April (& some sightings in a list for Monday & Tues. 4/29-30), 2019 -

A second male Summer Tanager was found in the northwest sector of Central Park, seen & photo’d by over a dozen observers on Tuesday, in addition to the continuing male Summer Tanager in a ‘pocket’ garden along W. 48th St. as earlier reported.

On Monday very early a.m., a reliable report came from an experienced observer of a heard-only Whip-poor-will at an unexpected area of Manhattan, in Greenwich Village. An American Bittern was reliably reported, by the Central Park Meer in that park’s north end, as a flyover on Tuesday; this may have landed in the adjacent wooded area.

A singing male Golden-winged Warbler was enjoyed by many observers on Tuesday, seen by many with some efforts, & heard singing by even more; observations included those by the dozens of participants on multiple group bird-walks, including those led by guides with the Linnaean Society of New York, the American Museum of Natural History, and New York City Audubon, as well as by others visiting the Ramble aree in Central Park.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Manhattan, NYC Tues., 4/30 (Summer Tanager, Blue Grosbeak, Golden-winged & other Warbler spp., +)
It seems reasonable to place here a note on the reported-photographed Magnificent Frigatebird seen on Saturday, April 27th by at least 2 observers, at Hamlin Beach state park in Monroe County, NY - see: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S55477515

- - - - -
Tuesday, 30 April, 2019 -

Manhattan, N.Y. City -

Just in the morning hours of Tuesday have been fresh finds of a number of migrant species, and also continuing birds. Of the latter, 2 of note are the continuing adult male SUMMER Tanager at the Clinton Community Garden on West 48th Street (between Ninth & Tenth Avenues) which may be visible without a need to enter this sometimes locked site; and a female-plumaged BLUE Grosbeak at Fort Tryon Park in northern Manhattan.

Among arrivals of warblers to Manhattan are at least a few firsts of the season for the county - a male GOLDEN-WINGED Warbler, found by Tod Winston & the NYC Audubon a.m. bird-walk group in Central Park’s Ramble, & seen by multiple observers in the morning, & other species which include: Tennessee, Magnolia, Blackburnian, Cape May, and Canada Warbler[s], along with other warbler species seen previously in Manhattan: Hooded, Blue-winged, Nashville, Northern Parula (fairly common in some spots), Yellow, Black-throated Blue, Black-throated Green, Yellow-rumped [Myrtle], Pine, Prairie, Palm (no longer common), Black-and-white, American Redstart, Worm-eating (at least several - Tues.), Wilson’s, Ovenbird, Northern Waterthrush (fairly common in some locations), & Common Yellowthroat (increased overnight). There were additionally a few reports of some other warbler spp. & more may come to light during this week. This is a minimum of two dozen warbler species on the day = very active migration recently. Some of the activity has been in the south-most parts of Manhattan, while there’ve been good sightings from all around the island and no doubts would be on outlying isles of New York County as well.

Other Manhattan sightings include a few Great Crested Flycatchers and Eastern Kingbirds, & reports of Empidonax [genus] flycatchers; the sight of more Chimney Swifts overhead in several locations over Manhattan also a sure sign of increases in arrivals or movements of neotropical-wintering migrants more generally. Due to prevailing winds both locally in the N.Y. City area, & at least to some extent regionally for the same area, a lot of migrants have moved thru to the west of the Hudson river (i.e., west of Manhattan island) & also onward in the night[s] to destinations north of the latitude of N.Y. City, including (some) to potential breeding areas. This may also show why (if) some land birds in particular are in shorter supply “out east” on NY’s Long Island, but there would be other factors as well, including migrants being able to reach somewhat more inland sites.

It can also be noted that while some migrant passerines have been increasing, many species have thus far been in lower-than-expected numbers in Manhattan (at least), so far this spring.

good birding,

Tom Fiore

Subject: [nysbirds-l] ebird email policy
Apparently it is an intentional policy of ebird not to provide email addresses of posters.

I think this is a TERRIBLE policy.  On several occasions I have wanted to contact the poster about a reported bird.
The policy should be changed to display email address as the default.  If someone wants to hide theirs, OK, that could be an option.   And, yes, of course I would display mine, just as I am doing now.

Evidently some people think that listserves like this one are obsolete, in favor of ebird.  Without the ability to contact the poster of a record, I think ebird is far less useful than a listserve.

[~BEGIN RBA TAPE~]

Greetings! This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, April 26, 2019
at 9:00 pm.

The highlights of today's tape are BLACK-NECKED STILT, AMERICAN
GOLDEN-PLOVER, ICELAND GULL, CATTLE EGRET, PROTHONOTARY, YELLOW-THROATED,
KENTUCKY and other spring WARBLERS, SUMMER TANAGER, BLUE GROSBEAK,
RED-HEADED WOODPECKER, GRASSHOPPER SPARROW and more.

After last year’s absence, certainly a welcome find last Sunday was a
BLACK-NECKED STILT visiting storm pools on the grassy lawns of Nickerson
Beach just west of Point Lookout. The STILT continued around the pools
until Thursday, when it moved across Lido Boulevard to the marsh at the
Lido Beach Passive Natural Area, where it remained today and could be
nicely viewed from the berm on the south side of the marsh. At Nickerson
two winter-plumaged AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVERS were also present last weekend,
while at the Passive Natural Area other reports included a BLUE GROSBEAK
Wednesday and LEAST SANDPIPER and RED KNOT among the shorebirds there
towards the end of the week.

The increasing number of WARBLERS featured male PROTHONOTARY WARBLERS in
Central Park on Monday and in Prospect Park up to Thursday, while a decent
showing of YELLOW-THROATED WARBLERS included one in Central Park last
Saturday, another in Prospect Park Sunday to Tuesday, one in Forest Park
seen again Tuesday, one found at the Alley Pond Environmental Center
Wednesday, and the continuing male at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum. Also
quite notable was an ORANGE CROWNED WARBLER in Central Park yesterday, a
KENTUCKY WARBLER in Forest Park, Queens today, and a CERULEAN WARBLER found
on territory north of New York City at Bashakill today. Other Warblers
arriving lately have included OVENBIRD, WORM-EATING, both LOUISIANA and
NORTHERN WATERTHRUSHES, BLUE-WINGED, BLACK-AND-WHITE, NASHVILLE, COMMON
YELLOWTHROAT, AMERICAN REDSTART, NORTHERN PARULA, YELLOW, BLACK-THROATED
BLUE, PRAIRIE, and BLACK-THROATED GREEN.

Two other southern specialties appeared this week, with a SUMMER TANAGER
visiting Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn last Saturday and another noted on
Staten Island Wednesday, while a few BLUE GROSBEAKS included two reported
from Manhattan’s Inwood Hill Park Monday as well as singles at Hempstead
Lake State Park Sunday and after, and one at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Wednesday.

Two CATTLE EGRETS were noted on Monday and again today at Miller Field on
Staten Island.

An ICELAND GULL was photographed with a LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL at Tobay
yesterday, and a smattering of other LESSER BLACK-BACKEDS included two at
Heckscher State Park Monday and two each at Mecox and Sagg Pond out east
Tuesday, with a few others also around.

Mid-week sightings of RED-HEADED WOODPECKERS featured one at Pelham Bay
Tuesday, another at Jones Beach West End Wednesday, and a third at Lido
Beach Thursday.

Some BLACK VULTURES and various HAWKS, now including numbers of
BROAD-WINGEDS, continue to move through our area, and other non-passerines
arriving lately have included YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO, EASTERN WHIP-POOR-WILL,
SOLITARY SANDPIPER, and LITTLE BLUE HERON.

Among the passerines, the first GREAT CRESTED FLYCATCHERS and EASTERN
KINGBIRDS have appeared, other additions featuring WARBLING and RED-EYED
VIREOS, BANK SWALLOW, SWAINSON’S THRUSH and SEASIDE SPARROW, as well as
such colorful favorites as BALTIMORE and ORCHARD ORIOLES, SCARLET TANAGER,
ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAK and INDIGO BUNTING.

A GRASSHOPPER SPARROW has returned to the wonderful grasslands in Calverton
at the site of the former Grumman Airport, this a site very worthy of
preservation.

To phone in reports, on Long Island call Tony Lauro at (631) 734 4126 or
call Tom Burke at (914) 967-4922 and leave a message.

This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the
National Audubon Society. Thank you for calling.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Possible Purple Gallinule in Cattaraugus County
There is an unconfirmed report of a PURPLE GALLINULE in the Town of Allegany
in Cattaraugus County, seen yesterday (Thursday). The location, according to
the eBird map location, is by Interstate-86, just east of Five Mile Road.



You can see the eBird report here:
https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S55397648



Although it is not the most confidence-inspiring note, this is a distinctive
species and the observer has since indicated to me that he and his brother
are now 100% certain of the identification.



Good birding!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Alley Pond Park Black Vultures, Yellow-throated Warbler
The Black Vulture "assault" on Long Island continues. A group of three was
seen from the hawk observation post at APEC, but looking way to the south. I
heard that one BV, presumably part of that group was seen through the canopy
in the vicinity of where a Yellow-throated Warbler was found. That would be
around the weather station, which is near the adventure course. I looked for
it several hours later, and had little trouble finding it, as it sang high
in the trees there. So perhaps it will hang in at the same location.



Another interesting moment was seeing a large brown bird descending below
the tree line on the east side of Alley Creek. The destination appears to
have been the small wooded pond near the Douglaston train station. While I
couldn't get a definitive look, it seems like the earmark of an American
Bittern.



Delving into various other groups, the advance of spring was evident at APEC
in the form of first of season Green Darner, Italian Wall Lizard, and Mud
Fiddler Crab.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Manhattan, NYC Wed., 4/24 (good arrival of migrants)
One note from the Bronx (county) from Tuesday, 4/23, a Red-headed Woodpecker was reported along with more-regular species at Pelham Bay Park in the Hunter Island area, by M. Janssen.

---
Wednesday, 24 April, 2019 - Manhattan, N.Y. City

An uptick locally in the numbers of Gray Catbird is a fairly good indicator that more of a variety of neotropical-wintering species has also arrived.

A fairly good push of new migrants came through, and some have dropped in to local parks on Wednesday. Included among these in Manhattan are Yellow-billed Cuckoo, at least 4 species of Vireos (Red-eyed, White-eyed, Warbling, and Blue-headed) - & won’t be surprised to add a 5th to those; also Eastern Kingbird, Great Crested Flyctacher, & poss. Empidonax (if so, likely to be Least) Flycatcher, Orchard & Baltimore Oriole[s], & some thrush diversity coming along with Veery, Wood, & now Swainson’s as well as (more) Hermit Thrushes, & what seems an especially strong push of sparrows, with White-throated Sparrow showing a considerable increase in some locations; also a good species-diversity in warblers, even if not the really big numbers of some that will eventually be expected (such as Yellow-rumped/Myrtle). There also is/was a good amount of diurnal activity, added to the significant nocturnal flight that passed over NYC much of the night, & watching the sky could be rewarding, thru the day also.

NO sign or report of a Prothonotary Warbler from Tuesday at Central Park, despite some seeking. It could still be around, but may also have moved on, especially given the strong flight north of many species by Tues. night / early Wed. New York County had a Purple Martin fly-by on Tuesday 4/23 as reported by an experienced observer from Manhattan’s eastern side. A male Scarlet Tanager appeared along Riverside Drive (near W. 111th St.) late Tuesday, & was not re-found early Wed. 4/24.

Among warbler migrants, a good diversity already seen & heard; likely some others are also around; those noted so far were: Ovenbird, Northern Waterthrush, Louisiana Waterthrush, Blue-winged Warbler, Nashville Warbler, Northern Parula, Yellow Warbler, Black-throated Blue Warbler, Yellow-rumped [Myrtle] Warbler, Black-throated Green Warbler, Pine Warbler, Prairie Warbler, Palm Warbler, Black-and-white Warbler, American Redstart, Worm-eating Warbler, Common Yellowthroat, & Hooded Warbler. Only a few of these seemed even moderately common, & none appeared to be abundant, yet. There are some Purple Finches in locations where they were not seen in recent days, a likely new influx. There were at least a few newly-arrived Red-breasted Nuthatches as well, in several parks visited in the a.m.

Good birding,

Tom Fiore

Subject: [nysbirds-l] G = Glorious__GD = Glorious Day__GG = Glorious Grosbeak
Tuesday was a light-weight shirt day, with the temperature in the
mid-seventies, by the time Mary Laura Lamont called in the A.M., to alert
me to the lone, probable female, Evening Grosbeak she had at her
feeders.She was quite excited about her good fortune, for it had been 30
years since this specie had last stopped at her property !

Due to an operation on my right foot on 4/11, I'm still in a special boot,
and while able to walk, I am unable to drive. So, having to wait for my
busy chauffeur (wife, RuthAnn) it wasn't until 1420 before "speed-canning"
to a halt in front of "the" sunflower feeder, which at that moment was only
nourishing the likes of woodpeckers, finches and tits ! Mary Laura then
delivered the dreaded news, "the bird hadn't been seen or heard in over an
hour" !

We then settled into a pair of Adirondack chairs and had a nice "catching
up" conversation, while being kept busy checking out the 11 common species
flitting around the Lamont's bustling backyard. After about 20 minutes, ML
heard the EVGR call (a single grating note) a welcomed sign that it hadn't
moved out ! Although continuing to call, it took ~ another 20 minutes to
locate the bird, which was a good 60 yards away. It remained there a short
time before moving ~ 10 yards closer, only to disappear 5 minutes later.
While never getting within my camera's range for a good shot, Mary Laura
had, earlier getting a few nice photos of the bird at the feeder !

I, of course, was thrilled with hearing and seeing this species - the last
time being on the GD of 4/21/07 in East Quogue, when a single, male GG flew
over at a height of ~ 50 feet...while being bathed in GL !

Cheers,
Bob

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Croton Point Sightings & Landfill Grassland Project Begun
Surprisingly still relatively quiet today: only warbler was ongoing Pine
Warbler singing/seen in pines between RV Campground and Croton Bay. Big
influx of House Wrens this morning singing in every corner and uptick of
singing Blue-Gray Gnatcatchers and Eastern Towhee. Small kettle (11)
Broad-winged Hawks seen mid-day. Two American Kestrels seen hunting the
native grass areas of the landfill. (A Northern Harrier, a grey ghost, was
seen by other birders yesterday on the grassland.)

Two male Purple Martins arrived today, singing and entering gourds on
nesting structure by park entrance booth. (Third year for this project;
here's hoping for another successful nesting year.)

Of note: a 2nd martin nesting structure was added this spring, at Rockwood
Hall State Park, ~4.5 mi S, in hopes of establishing a 2nd Westchester
County Purple Martin colony.

Also as a heads up to regional birders: the Croton Point Park landfill
grassland restoration project has now begun with most of the landfill
grassland mown this spring with exception of flagged areas of native
grasses. The main path was closed temporarily today while targeted spraying
for smooth bromegrass was done. This is the start of a two-year project.
Saw Mill River Audubon is encouraging signage on site -- to be added soon
-- to explain the project. More info below, if of interest.

Brief project overview: Using state funding to its Soil and Water
Conservation District, the County of Westchester is restoring grassland
atop the former landfill at Croton Point Park. Larry Weaner Landscape
Associates has designed this project and will be overseeing its
implementation. The project is intended to curb less desirable, invasive
plants in favor of more ecologically friendly native plants to improve
wildlife habitat, especially for grassland birds.

Thursday, May 23, 7:00pm at the Croton Free Library, Saw Mill River Audubon
is hosting a public program to overview this project including a Q&A with
presenters Larry Weaner and Jenna Webster, of Larry Weaner Landscape
Associates.

Ongoing, Saw Mill River Audubon is glad to field questions or comments
about this project and pass along any concerns, as may be helpful. We have
been closely following the project plans and were invited to offer input,
including referencing eBird records of grassland bird use of the project
site, with ongoing thanks to all who eBird their visits to Croton Point
Park.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Prothonotary Warbler, Central Park, NYC Monday 4/22
Monday, 22 April, 2019 -
Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City

I discovered a male Prothonotary Warbler around 4:30 pm on a rather rainy afternoon, at The Pond in the southeastern corner of the park, seen by chance on a walk not really seeking birds (and no bins in hand); luckily, a few others could be alerted & with word getting out, a fair number of other birders got to see the Prothontary in the late hours of the day. It spent a good deal of time by the stone bridge at the N. side of the main pond, known as Gapstow bridge, and was feeding a lot near the water, occasionally into low branches near there, including near all 4 “corners” of this small stone arched foot bridge. The location is very near Fifth Avenue & about E. 61st Street, a bit west into the park from there, & is also a very popular tourist destination for sky-line photos & such. I was with Kristine Wallstrom who helped me get the word out, & also helped to get some photos with a pocket camera. As we departed, more birders were arriving. Hopefully, it may stay over a while, and give more seekers a chance to view. N.B., all of the pond edges & crannies could be checked, should the warbler not be in evidence on further search.

- -
(a p.s. on a bird-banding code used by me; I realized a few minutes late that a code for American Golden Plover is not normally AMGO - Mea culpa.)

good luck,
