Warblers, Etc.

A great front of birds flying south on a chill wind swept into Brooklyn on Tuesday morning to be greeted by an orange-red sun rising in the smoke haze wafted here from the west’s conflagrations.
Mature male American Redstart.
Female and juvenile male Redstarts out-numbered the old males by far and were simply falling out of trees everywhere in Green-Wood.
Chestnut-sided Warbler.
Scarlet Tanager.
Rose-breasted Grosbeak.
Northern Parula.
Black-throated Blue male.
Tennessee Warbler. Never captured one of these in photos before.
Lincoln’s Sparrow.
Common Yellowthroat.

Meanwhile, on the other side of this climate-changed continent: a mass die-off of migrating birds across the southwest.

    Very nice pics, thank you!!
    About the die off of birds: How about herbicides killing or rendering as unsuitable plants, that are hosts for the birds food insects? Pesticides? Trees are getting killed, too. Silent spring – and summer and autumn, too.
