Sunset Park

Different views from the roof. Jersey City, Manhattan to Midtown, and Downtown Brooklyn making a continuous urban skyline. And Green-Wood Cemetery.
Went up when I heard an American Kestrel calling. A female.
A Laughing Gull passed, silently.
Three-four-five Chitterwizzles, or Chimney Swifts, were overhead, too.

    Have to say – when I first started working in NYC years ago I thought there were only three species of birds there (House Sparrows, Pigeons & Starlings). How wrong I was! And your posts prove it!

    Chitterwizzle is right next to timberdoodle on the all time list of bedt bird names
