Another breeding bird? A pair of Brown Thrashers were hunkered under a few bushes in Green-Wood recently. A big, bold bird that hides its light under a bushel if there ever was one. Seeing this one out in the open was a nice change of pace.

Forster’s Tern hunting over the Crescent Water.
A bit unusual for inland Brooklyn, although, in truth, the water is never more than a few miles away.
Common Grackles are another local breeder.
The champion local breeder is the American Robin. This nest site had three broods here last year. This might be the second here this year: I saw a bird sitting here months ago but never saw any young result, but then I wasn’t checking regularly.
Bulging eye.
