Great turn-out for this morning’s Brooklyn Bird Club walk in Green-Wood. A dozen birders and 32 bird species.
We had great views of bright, vocalizing Pine warblers, the first I’ve seen of the year; Cedar Waxwings hawking right in front of us; a male Kestrel plucking what looked like a sparrow; six Fish Crows harrying a Red-tail; and a brief Merlin appearance at Crescent Water, which was the most active spot of the morning.
It was cold to begin with, but warmed up as a spring should as the sun climbed. It sure felt like spring with the Phoebes and Pines singing.
All da boids:
Red-tailed Hawk (3x, perhaps the same juvenile bird)
Northern Flicker (a very Flickery morning)
