Transitions

It’s that time of year. Birds are on the move. Most are passing through NYC, but some are coming for the winter from further north. White-throated Sparrows and Dark-eyed Juncos are back in town. This is their Miami (the bagels are better). On Saturday, they were mixed up with warblers, flycatchers, and others migrating further south, sometimes much further south. Green-Wood was overflowing with birds. But then, the next day, Sunday, most had gone. Palm Warbler (Setophaga palmarum) above.A Black & White  Warbler (Mniotilta varia) with large moth. There was quite a struggle.Warbler won.
