Recent Birds

Look who’s already hatched here in Brooklyn, while birds like Baltimore Orioles have only just begun to build their nests. We have baby falcons at 55 Water St., too. Future eaters of Robins? Ah, well, everybody’s got to make a living.Most warblers keep moving on through to nest further north, but some like the Yellow will nest within NYC. This one has that favorite of warbler morsels, a caterpillar. Wood Thrush, another NYC nester.We stared at each other for a couple of minutes, which is a long time for songbirds/humans.Savanah Sparrow.Hooded Warbler.Ovenbird.

Northern Rough-winged Swallow. Not a bird you see everyday. Seeing it groom is even less of an occurrence. What a view of that sharp line between dusky belly and white vent. That’s a good “tell” in the field.
