Forecast: Birds

A very few of the birds noted on recent trips to Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, Central Park, and Green-Wood Cemetery:Exploration of nest box at Jamaica Bay’s West Pond. Troglodytes aedon. And then suddenly there were three of these bubbly-voiced House Wrens zooming about. But don’t fall for the small-is-cute thing. I reported this collar. Waiting to hear back.Agelaius phoeniceusBoom!Rose-breasted Grosbeak (Pheucticus ludovicianus).The male. The female. Rather harder to photograph.Cardellina canadensis, Canada Warbler, one of the last migrants to arrive. Sturnus vulgaris.All ready to fledge — others have, while Baltimore Orioles are just starting their nests. Eastern Kingbird (Tyrannus tyrannus).Cedar Waxwing, Bombycilla cedrorum.

      Somebody’s tracking experiment. Supposedly doesn’t bother the geese, and definitely easier to read from a distance than a band.

    Thank you for these great pictures — I am a very novice bird watcher in the Clermont area, and your photos are the best. I just saw a male Rose-breasted Grosbeack a couple of days ago… Glad to know what it is!
