Kissena Corridor Park, 27 September

Joe Giunta and I (Sy Schiff) arrived at 9:30. After a short walk on macadam, we 
moved on to the wood chips covered paths. Not a lot of birds, but what there 
was was rather continuous. So we kept busy. Among the birds were: 2 RING-NECKED 
PHEASANTS, YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER, AMERICAN KESTREL, EASTERN PHOEBE, 
EMPIDONAX FLYCATCHER (broke up the monotony while we speculated on ID, although 
we left it as is), RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET, BLACK-AND-WHITE,YELLOWTHROAT,PARULA, 
MAGNOLIA, BLACKPOLL, and BLACK-THROATED GREEN WARBLERS and INDIGO BUNTINGS. 


We then entered the adjacent Community Gardens. The area was a delight. Almost 
every plot had flowers in bloom. Here birding was a bit slow but all below eye 
level. We did manage a few YELLOWTHROATS, PALM WARBLERS, EASTERN GOLDFINCH and 
best of all, a perfect TENNESSEE WARBLER to end the morning.

Flickers are seemingly everywhere at Jones Beach, I just counted 10 in flight 
moving down the beach, and I reached 20 for my total count.

Subject: Re:[ebirdsnyc] Central Park: Checklist vs. eBird.org
From: Ben Cacace <bcacace AT gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 27 Sep 2016 10:44:21 -0400
Ken,

This is great question. I have "The Birds of Central Park" checklist which
has 280 birds. I needed to add Belted Kingfisher to my version and
Saltmarsh Sharp-tailed Sparrow is now two spp. I'm not sure which one was
seen in the park so I added both. I'm not counting the warbler hybrids from
the checklist.

To see the 265 spp. of birds reported to eBird.org for Central Park you'll
need to combine all sub-locations. The easiest way to do this is to go to
the wiki page below and click on "Central Park" below the label "Combined
Bar Charts ...". It might take a few minutes for the bar charts to load:

http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Central+Park

I found that the following 14 birds are on the eBird.org list but not on
the Central Park checklist. eBird includes European Goldfinch:

Barnacle Goose
Greater Scaup
Great Cormorant
Boreal Owl
Rufous Hummingbird
Monk Parakeet
Pacific-slope Flycatcher
Common Raven
Varied Thrush
Hermit Warbler
Baird's Sparrow
Boat-tailed Grackle
Pine Grosbeak
European Goldfinch

More interesting are the 29 birds on the Central Park checklist that have
yet to make it into the eBird.org database. BTW, I've seen Mississippi Kite
twice in Central Park but these haven't been accepted. One sighting was on
12-Jun-2008:

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S3933333 (includes image of field
notes)

Common Eider
Surf Scoter
White-winged Scoter
Long-tailed Duck
Ruffed Grouse
Least Bittern
Little Blue Heron
Tricolored Heron
Cattle Egret
Mississippi Kite
Clapper Rail
Semipalmated Plover
Whimbrel
White-rumped Sandpiper
Pectoral Sandpiper
Red Phalarope
Caspian Tern
Forster's Tern
Snowy Owl
Short-eared Owl
Black-backed Woodpecker
Bell's Vireo
Horned Lark
Northern Wheatear
Snow Bunting
Townsend's Warbler
Le Conte's Sparrow
Nelson's Sparrow
Yellow-headed Blackbird

Adding up the 265 spp. in eBird plus the 29 spp. not entered into eBird yet
from the Central Park checklist would bring the total to 294 spp. If you
have a sighting that appears on the list of 29 these would be a great
addition to the eBird database. Historical sightings can be added. I've
added a few based on articles in journals. These are reviewed by the
moderator as are all other sightings.

Here's a sighting of Mississippi Kite by Ken Allaire on 25-May-2008 that
I've added. The report was accepted by NYSARC. I pasted an image of the
report onto the checklist:

Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City

Some of us on Monday sought out a couple of Sunday's (9/25) more  
interesting birds, as seen (then) in the north end of the park - Clay- 
colored Sparrow & Vesper Sparrow - but were unsuccessful in re-finding  
these two uncommon-in-manhattan species this Monday.

On Sunday, in total, 10 species of sparrows were recorded in various  
locations in Central, with White-crowned, Lincoln's, Field, Chipping,  
Swamp, Song, White-throated, and Savannah being the other 8 in  
addition to the 2 rarer species   -   all of these 8 other sparrow  
species - as well as more of the Dark-eyed Juncos that had come in  
earlier in the week - were again present Monday, & in just one part of  
the north end - the Blockhouse & north woods, 15 species of warblers  
and nearby, great views of a Philadelphia Vireo, the latter on the  
Great Hill.  The most numerous warbler north of the reservoir to 110  
St. (the n. border of the park) was Palm, with more than 40 found,  
including in less-birded areas; several other warbler species were  
nearly as common this Monday in a variety of locations.

Species such as Blue-headed Vireo, Golden-crowned Kinglet, and Myrtle  
Warbler rather suddenly have increased from the more-minimal numbers  
of the end of summer (i.e., just a few days before) & today were in  
numbers approaching not-uncommon, based just on those seen from the  
only northern 1/2 of the park.

A rare-in-Manhattan butterfly was photographed on Sunday in the north  
end of Central Park, a Common Checkered-Skipper, for which historic  
documented records were found in Central by Nick Wagerik; Sunday's was  
found by Mike Freeman of Manhattan.

Thanks to the many observers who respect the birds and their fellow  
park users through quiet, unobtrusive and courteous observations - and  
to those walk-leaders who exemplify those standard principles.

Date: Mon, 26 Sep 2016 19:35:24 -0400
For the New York County (Boro of Manhattan) wiki pages I've determined the
Top 12 locations by species # and have kept the dynamic character for these
location pages. These include color highlighting based on the # of spp. as
shown on eBird maps, total # of spp. on the bar charts and a 'Notable
Finds' section showing the rarer species seen based on an algorithm I've
developed. This is similar to the Westchester County page. The other
locations are static and don't need month to month maintenance making it
possible to expand the Top 10 concept to more counties.

Here are the top 15 locations for NY County. The Top 12 locations will be
highlighted in green to denote that these are dynamic pages:

Central Park (265 spp.)
Inwood Hill Park (224 spp.)
Randall's Island (203 spp.)
Riverside Park (178 spp.)
Governors Island (168 spp.)

Subject: Summer Tanager - Jones Beach West End, Nassau County
From: Shawn Billerman <smb223 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Mon, 26 Sep 2016 15:05:41 -0400
Hi all,

This morning, I checked the West End of Jones Beach, focusing on the Coast
Guard Station and Median. There was a good variety of songbirds, including
my first Golden-crowned Kinglets and Dark-eyed Junco of the fall. The
highlight though, was a single *Summer Tanager *that briefly appeared in
the median before moving on. I saw it along the median near the turnoff for
the Coast Guard Station. It seemed to head westward, but I was unable to
relocate it. In addition to the tanager, there was a good smattering of
warblers, including a big push of Yellow-rumped Warblers and a few Palm,
Pine, Black-throated Green, Blackpoll, and Prairie Warblers.

A link to my complete eBird checklist, with photos of the Summer Tanager,
is here: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S31767434

Good birding,

My friend Sacha, a boat captain, just sent me a photograph he took this 
afternoon of a lovely adult male Yellow-headed Blackbird that was perched on a 
construction barge by the Tappan Zee bridge, closer to the Nayack side. Keep an 
eye on those blackbird flocks if you're in the Nayack/Tarrytown area!

Subject: Bryant Park NYC: 14+ species
From: Gabriel Willow <gabrielwillow AT yahoo.com>
Date: Mon, 26 Sep 2016 10:24:28 -0400
Good movement overnight, with an influx of later-season migrants this morning. 
On my twice-weekly Bryant Park walk (free, Mondays 8-9am & Thursdays 5-6pm) we 
spotted some nice diversity in an hour, mostly around the central lawn area. I 
suspect there were many birds we missed, especially in the treetops; if anyone 
is headed to work late or can go on their lunch break, definitely worth a look! 


We found:

Rock Pigeon
Eastern Phoebe (1, treetops)
Gray Catbird (7+, more than in recent days)
Ruby-crowned Kinglet (1, FOS, trees)
European Starling (recent breeding residents in the park, in small numbers)
Ovenbird (1)
Blackpoll Warbler (FOS, bright Imm. female, feeding on lawn, very confiding)
Common Yellowthroat (many)
Lincoln's Sparrow (1, found by Jeanne Tao)
Swamp Sparrow (2, on lawn)
Song Sparrow (1, lawn)
Dark-eyed Junco (1, FOS, lawn)
White-throated Sparrow (5, lawn & shrubs)
House Sparrow (many)

Fall is here!

Subject: "There's no joy in N.Y.' ville tonight" !
From: robert adamo <radamo4691 AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 26 Sep 2016 01:24:03 -0400
Early Sunday afternoon I made a wrong choice, when I opted to stay indoors
to watch the undefeated N.Y.Giants (2-0) take on the underdog Washington
Redskins, rather than taking to the outdoors on this gorgeous Fall day to
do some birding ! I hope I didn't "jinx the G'ints"...whose record now
stands at (2-1).

With N.Y's. other football team, the Jets, about to do battle against the
K.C.Chiefs, in the 2nd game of the afternoon, I made the tactical decision
to leave the house...and hopefully, all the "bad karma"too !

My 1st stop was at Iron Pier Town Beach, Jamesport, but found no "good
gulls" present. Next, I visited the North Fork Preserve, Jamesport, where
my luck changed a bit ! Around the tennis courts there were 4-5 juvenile
E.Phoebes using the top fence railings as observation posts, before
dropping down on their unsuspecting prey. They kept this up for ~ 45
minutes, except for the short time spent scattering/ hiding when a juvenile
N.Goshawk came bursting over some short trees and left the clearing in
pursuit of one of them. For whatever it is worth, during the 15 minutes I
stayed after this encounter, only 2 of the phoebes returned to their
hunting posts.

In the time I had left (wanted to be home by 7 PM for "60 Minutes") I
ventured to the Calverton Grasslands, only to gain nothing ! Heading home
on Edwards Ave (Route 24) Riverhead, just n/o the traffic circle, I had a
perched juvenile Merlin.

Cheers,
Bob
P.S...The Jets lost too !

Birded the beach at Breezy and Tilden. Only bird of note was a single female 
Common Eider. Just west of the silver gull club. Can't recall having one in 
September before.

Subject: Cupsogue County Park
From: Andrew Baksh <birdingdude AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 25 Sep 2016 17:51:50 -0400
The birding was slow on a rising tide at Cupsogue this afternoon. Not as many 
Royal Terns as last week, with only 29 seen today, split 16/13 between Cupsogue 
Flats and Pikes Beach. 


Shorebirds were sparse unlike last week where many were on the Hurricane Sandy 
created spit north of the flats. Today, there were scattered single digit 
numbers of Sanderlings, Black-bellied Plovers and Semipalmated Plovers. 


An amazing site of thousands of Swallows (mostly Tree), high up apparently 
insect catching was observed near the inlet. Mei Yee and I would have missed 
this entirely, had we not taken the time to count a flock of fly by 
Double-crested Cormorants. The sheer number of Swallows and distance made them 
look like insects until we put a scope on the swirling mass. 


Birding Dune Road with stops at Tiana Beach and Shinnecock Inlet, proved to be 
non productive. We did however count 11 Cooper's Hawks and 8 Northern Harriers. 
Perhaps an indicator of some raptor movement. 


Seawatching, was dead on arrival and no different by the time we pulled out.

Cheers,

A quick trip this morning produced more birds than I've had at this site in
many visits. Nothing spectacular, but my first two White-throated Sparrows
of the season, at least 4 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, and a number of
warblers including Northern Parula and Common Yellowthroat. Across the
street in the wildflower meadow were a number of Palm Warblers and a few
Phoebes.

Subject: 9-24 Shorebirding and Gulling in Brooklyn and Queens...
From: Andrew Baksh <birdingdude AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 25 Sep 2016 11:57:38 -0400
Given the date and rainy weather conditions this morning, I again tried the 
line-up of Floyd Bennett Field, Riis Park, Fort Tilden and Breezy Point in 
search of Gulls...specifically Lesser Black-backed Gull. I had done the very 
same on the 19th but came away with very little for my efforts. 


Floyd Bennett Field which in the past has been very good for Lesser 
Black-backed Gulls in rainy weather did not produce any. Nevertheless, the 
variety of Great Black-backed Gulls in front of the Aviator building were a 
treat to study. 


Riis Park and Fort Tilden also did not turn up anything of note. However, 
things turned around at Breezy Point, starting along the 4 wheel drive with a 
calling shorebird which sounded like a Pectoral but then not quite?? I never 
glassed it then but later on the beach, I spotted a bird way down near the 
Silver Gull club. It was definitely Pectoral like with good markings indicating 
a juvenile. I tried to catch up with this bird but I was quite aways and lost 
it once I started towards its location. That is one that I have to put on the 
"wish I had a better look" category. 


Among the estimated 1200 Sanderlings, I managed to pick out 1 flagged bird. 
Feeding among the Sanderling flock were 5 WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPERS along with 6 
Dunlins and 7 Semipalmated Sandpipers. Higher up on the beach, I picked up 11 
Black-belied Plovers hunkered down in the sand hiding in wheel ruts. 


1 Juvenile Spotted Sandpiper and 5 Rudy Turnstones rounded out the shorebird 
numbers. There was no noticeable flight of passerines so I did not bother to 
beat the bushes but instead kept my focus on gulls. The efforts paid off when I 
finally laid eyes on one Adult Lesser Black-backed Gull hiding among the many 
Great black-backed Gulls. Observed on the bayside while on my way back to the 
fisherman's parking lot. 


Nearing the parking lot, I ran into a mixed flock of Gulls and spent some time 
sifting through the lot. One Gull caught my attention. The back color was a 
shade darker gray than nearby Herring Gulls (HERG), used for comparison. Black 
on the bill- although some HERGS show this. The eyes were dark unlike the same 
age class of nearby HERG and the legs had a grayish kind of look to them. I 
managed a few Digiscoped shots but alas no spread wing as the flock was flushed 
by beach goers before I could get off flight shots. Late last night, I shared 
one Digiscoped shot with a few Larophiles who thought it looked good for 
California Gull. CAGU, is what I thought of when I first came upon this Gull 
but given the variation in plumage of our Herring Gulls, I really wanted an 
open wing to clinch my impression. 


A link to a tweeted image of the said bird can be found here.

conservationist, professor, author, best known for his book "A Sand  
County Almanac" (1949), which has sold more than two million copies.

An update for all you chasers out there, the Brown Booby has not been seen in 
some time. The last eBird report came yesterday morning with no details other 
than "continuing", and I add my own fruitless vigil today to negative reports 
from the previous afternoon. A few distant cormorants briefly gave me hope 
through the heat shimmer, but there was no sign of the bird from 8:45 to 10:10.

Autumn is here first flock of American pipits on landfill about 20 birds. At 
least 8 kestrel likely double digits. Breeze, sky clearing, perfect morning 
light, alonetime after a week of work. Can't beat that. So here's to good 
birding and the late great Buckwheat Zydeco.

Subject: Watching Nighthawks through the prism of a wine glass: with thoughts of Jim Clinton Sr.
From: robert adamo <radamo4691 AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 23 Sep 2016 22:43:49 -0400
The weather tonight was perfect for my wife and I to enjoy our wine, while
seated in the outdoor area of the restaurant at the Great Rock Public Golf
Course in Wading River. This large, terraced, stone patio overlooks the 1st
& !8th holes, and especially when the Sun is "fading fast", is a choice
spot to end the day.

This evening was made "choicer"for me, when, between the hours of 6:25 -
7:05 PM, a total of 36 C. Nighthawks were "hawking" insects, as they
continued to migrate in a westerly direction. This location is less than a
1/4 mile s/o the L.I.Sound, and was part of the general area where Jim
Clinton Sr., using different prisms, did his yearly counting of southbound
nighthawks.

Cheers,
Bob

[~BEGIN RBA TAPE~]

Greetings! This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, September 23,
2016 at 7:00 pm.

The highlights of today’s tape are pelagics including AUDUBON’S SHEARWATER,
LONG-TAILED JAEGER and RED-NECKED PHALAROPE, plus MISSISSIPPI KITE, BAIRD’S
SANDPIPER, MARBLED GODWIT, CONNECTICUT WARBLER, YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT, BLUE
GROSBEAK and LARK SPARROW.

Last Saturday a private fishing boat ventured out well south of Shinnecock,
and partial results of the birds encountered included single GREAT and
AUDUBON’S SHEARWATERS, 12 WILSON’S STORM-PETRELS, 6 RED-NECKED PHALAROPES,
and 3 LONG-TAILED JAEGERS.

Closer to home the most unusual report involved an adult MISSISSIPPI KITE
flying west over the Bronx Zoo mid-day on Wednesday.  A NYSARC report would
be welcomed.

Among the lingering shorebirds, last Saturday 3 MARBLED GODWITS were seen
in Jamaica Bay south of the Wildlife Refuge around Big Egg Marsh and
another was spotted mid-day west of Oak Beach on a mud flat along the bay
edges.

At Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge itself a BAIRD’S SANDPIPER with physical
issues, including a missing left eye, was last Saturday no match for a pair
of PEREGRINE FALCONS cruising the East Pond.  After the first passed over,
the flushed Sandpiper was easily picked off by the 2nd Peregrine, which
climbed up to 30 feet and dropped the Sandpiper, the other Peregrine
catching it deftly and carrying it off as both birds vocalized in unison.
Other shorebirds on the East Pond this week included 1 or 2 WESTERN,
PECTORAL and WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPERS, up to 4 STILT SANDPIPERS, and a
couple of juvenile DUNLINS, 1 quite richly colored.  CASPIAN TERNS, seen
regularly on the pond, peaked with 4 Tuesday, while 3 ROYAL TERNS and a
decent group of RED KNOTS were among the birds out in the Bay south of the
former West Pond.

PEAKS of LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS, now gathering along the coast, include
8 at Robert Moses State Park Saturday and 10 Tuesday in parking lot 2 at
Jones Beach West End.

Ninety-six ROYAL TERNS were at Cupsogue County Park Saturday.

A VIRGINIA RAIL has continued in Prospect Park at least to Thursday, a SORA
was seen Sunday along Dune Road near Dolphin Lane, and 2 COMMON GALLINULES
have been present recently at Massapequa Preserve on Massapequa Lake north
of Merritt Road.

An adult RED-HEADED WOODPECKER was still around the Ramble in Central Park
last weekend.

Among the passerines, as the Warblers continue to diminish in numbers,
Sparrows have slowly been increasing, including a LARK SPARROW continuing
near the hawk watch at Robert Moses State Park at least to Thursday, with
another in Brooklyn’s Greenwood Cemetery last Saturday.

A BLUE GROSBEAK was found at Robert Moses State Park last Sunday.

Following last week’s push, PHILADELPHIA VIREOS included 2 in Prospect Park
Saturday, 1 at Hempstead Lake State Park last weekend, 1 at Bayard Cutting
Arboretum in Great River Wednesday, and reports from Central Park this week.

Among the Warblers, CONNECTICUTS seen this week have included singles in
Central Park Tuesday and Wednesday, 1 near the Pelham Bay landfill
Wednesday, and 1 in southern Manhattan by the World Trade Center Memorial
Thursday.

A YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT was out on Long Island last Saturday on the North
Fork, and other WARBLERS noted this week have included CAPE MAY,
BAY-BREASTED and WILSON’S.

Other migrants still include a few BLACK-BILLED and YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOOS
and COMMON NIGHTHAWKS.

At the local hawk watches, if BROAD-WINGED HAWKS are to make any sort of
major push this year, they will do it soon.

To phone in reports, on Long Island call Tony Lauro at (631) 734-4126, or
weekdays call Tom Burke at (212) 372-1483.

This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the
National Audubon Society. Thank you for calling.

Subject: Connecticut Warbler - Garvies Point 9/23 (Nassau)
From: Brendan Fogarty <birderbf AT yahoo.com>
Date: Fri, 23 Sep 2016 22:25:42 +0000 (UTC)
Found this morning by Barbara Garriel, seen through around 11am. Efforts made 
through afternoon to refind without much luck. Park, go left around the museum 
building, straight, down steps by 3 boulders, follow edge of mugwort/goldenrod 
field to pair of benches. Bird was seen at that corner of the field, walking 
between edge and in adjacent woods in the grassy trails. 40.858909, -73.651300 

An employee said the preserve grounds open around 8, but the museum hours start 
at 10, so I don't have a solid answer on when to start checking tomorrow. 
Today's cold front going by might well shuffle our migrants in any case. 

Best,Brendan

Subject: Central Park, NYC 9/22, 21, 20
From: Thomas Fiore <tomfi2 AT earthlink.net>
Date: Fri, 23 Sep 2016 07:03:33 -0400
Thursday, Wednesday, & Tuesday, 22nd, 21st, & 20th September, 2016
Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City

Good nocturnal migrations each night from Monday-Tues.-Wed. nights on  
into Thursday, and good variety in birds found in Central in the Iead- 
up to & including the autumnal equinox, occurring on Thursday 9/22!   
The good variety is now taking in (a bit) more in waterfowl, and  
further raptor movement, as well as some shorebird (known as "waders",  
to much of the rest of the world) passage, & of course plenty of  
passerine & other 'land'-bird movement & reasonably good stop-in or  
drop-in, particularly in the southern 2/3 of the park, as has been so  
for parts of this season's southbound migration thus far (the north  
end has birds too, however!)  Wednesday was probably the busier day of  
the 3 being reported on, as Jack Rothman's Central Park report also  
suggested, for that day.

Connecticut Warbler was among many highlights seen this week; at least  
one being well-seen at Strawberry Fields & with NO illegal taping used  
(amplified sound is prohibited in that area at all times, as posted  
there in park regulations signage) - by the many observers on at least  
2 days, Tues.-Wed. 9/20-21.  Again this week, all 6 northeastern- 
breeding Vireo species were seen nicely, with White-eyed &  
Philadelphia the less-common & just a few sightings of those to at  
least Wed.  Up to 23 species of warblers were found this week in  
Central, but some warbler species are now diminished in numbers here,  
as fall arrives - this is a collective tally as reliably seen by many  
dozens of quiet observers.

Some of the birds being seen from Thursday 9/22 back thru earlier in  
the week at Central:

Double-crested Cormorant
Great Blue Heron
Great Egret
Snowy Egret
Green Heron
Black-crowned Night-Heron

Canada Goose
Wood Duck (bright male, Pond; etc.)
Gadwall (notable numbers recently)
American Black Duck
Mallard
Northern Shoveler (Meer, Reservoir)
Northern Pintail (Turtle Pond, noted to some of us by Dr. (of  
ornithology) Roger Pasquier; many subsequent observers on Wed. 9/21)
Green-winged Teal (perhaps same individual having moved from Meer to  
reservoir, but more than 1 had been at the Meer in previous weeks)
Ruddy Duck (few to one, reservoir)

Osprey (flyovers daily)
Bald Eagle (reported by a few observers on Wed.)
Northern Harrier (flyover, Wed.)
Sharp-shinned Hawk (flyovers daily)
Cooper's Hawk (flyover, Wed.)
Red-tailed Hawk (area resident)
American Kestrel (area resident)
Merlin (flyover, Wed.)
Peregrine Falcon (area resident)

Solitary Sandpiper (Meer & reservoir, Tues.-Wed.)
Spotted Sandpiper (several, various locations to Thurs.)
Semipalmated Sandpiper (Tues., reservoir 'stop-overs')
Least Sandpiper (previously lingering; just 'stop-overs' by Tues.)
Laughing Gull (reservoir, in multiple at times, esp. near mid-day)
Ring-billed Gull
Herring Gull

Subject: eBird.org Shared Locations - Bronx River Pkwy Reservation
From: Ben Cacace <bcacace AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 21 Sep 2016 23:35:58 -0400
Markers were created for the linear park 'Bronx River Pkwy Reservation' in
Westchester County. The only established hotspot is the Crestwood Lake
location. The others are new and are based on the WestchesterGov.com site
showing the 3 sections. A description based on this site has been added to
the wiki page (see below) and a map from the same site appears in the
'Links' on the wiki:

http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Bronx+River+Pkwy+Reservation

— Bronx River Pkwy Reservation
— Bronx River Pkwy Reservation--Green Acres Ave.-Kensico Dam Plaza
— Bronx River Pkwy Reservation--Palmer Rd.-Crane Rd., Scarsdale
— Bronx River Pkwy Reservation--Crestwood Lake
— Bronx River Pkwy Reservation--Oak St. loop, Mt. Vernon

If you wish to merge your personal location with an existing hotspot here
are the steps:

— Sign into eBird.org
— Go to "My eBird" & select "Manage My Locations" in the right panel
— At the bottom of the screen click "Show All" to see all locations on one
page
— You can sort the list by clicking on any of the headers: Location,
Country, State/Province, County, Type* or # of Checklists
— Select your personal location (it will show a letter "P" under Type*) by
clicking "Edit" on the right side of the line
— Select the "Merge" button and you'll see all nearby hotspots as red icons
— Keep the checkmark for "Delete after merging" selected
— Click the icon that best fits your location
— ... now you'll see the hotspot description above the 'Merge' button along
with the # of checklists you'll be merging
— Click on the 'Merge' button
— Answer Yes to the 'Yes or No' query

All checklists for that personal location will be combined with the hotspot
with this process.

Subject: Jones Beach birds
From: Tim Healy <tph56 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Wed, 21 Sep 2016 19:38:43 -0400
I had the opportunity to swing down to the shore after work. A large hatch out 
of ants provided a feast for about a hundred Laughing Gulls at Jones Beach 
Field 6. The median at the West End featured some nice activity. Ruby-crowned 
Kinglets and Red-breasted Nuthatches were foraging in the pines, and there were 
phoebes and pewees flycatching from the branches. Warblers included several 
Redstarts, a Parula, a Yellow-rump, a bright Pine, and a handsome male Cape May 
who put on quite a show. There were other birds flitting about but the fading 
light put an end to the outing too soon. Multiple Merlins, a Peregrine, and 
some very vocal Black-crowned Night-Herons were also observed. 


Cheers!

morning and birded our way through a few areas of the park, both east and west. 


The Hackberry tree adjacent to the flat rock, by the Imagine Plaque, was 
magical. We had difficulty leaving after seeing 14 species in that tree alone, 
and then another 11 species in the surrounding foliage. 

In many cases we saw multiple birds of each species.

Marine Nature Study Area, Oceanside   21 Sep

Finally a few migrants today, namely: several PALM WARBLERS and several 
SAVANNAH SPARROWS plus an EASTERN PHOEBE . A MARSH WREN that showed up 
yesterday and still here today is also probably a migrant along with a 
cooperative GREEN HERON. Shorebirds still not moving in; Forster's Terns 
lingering. 


The RED CANA LILIES continue to attract RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRDS. In a space 
of 17 minutes (digital cameras time stamp the images), I managed to take 60 
photos with my point and shoot super zoom, a third presentable for ID and a few 
OK (Wings blurred in all cases). Review of the photos showed at least 2 
different birds.

Subject: Jamaica Bay shorebirds - juvenile Dunlin, Stilt, Pectotal Sandpipers
From: David Klauber <davehawkowl AT msn.com>
Date: Wed, 21 Sep 2016 18:49:11 +0000
Around midday I checked the raunt from the Big John's Pond area. There were not 
many birds, but a decent variety: Greater Yellowlegs, Short-billed Dowitchers, 
Semipalmated, White-rumped (1), Stilt(2),Pectoral(1) Sandpipers, and 
Semipalmated Plovers. 


The highlight for me was a brightly colored juvenile Dunlin, a plumage I had 
not seen before. Although there were a few gray basic scapulars, most of the 
scapulars and wing coverts had rufous fringes, with a bright spot by the alula 
area. The breast was heavily streaked, and the face was a pale brown. The belly 
was white, showing little sign of the black spot that the books say is typical 
of juveniles. Not a rare bird per se, but certainly an interesting one. A brief 
walk through the gardens found little except a Prairie warbler between the HQ 
and south garden

There is a Connecticut warbler feeding on each side of the path that goes along 
the West side of the landfill. First half of the path from the road. It was 
showing well this a.m. and I saw it both while entering the site at 8 am and 
leaving it about an hour ago.

Subject: great blue herons -- Hudson Line
From: Larry Trachtenberg <Trachtenberg AT amsllp.com>
Date: Tue, 20 Sep 2016 17:07:12 +0000
I counted eleven GBH riding the Hudson line from Ossining south to Spuyten 
Duyval this morning. I believe that's a high count. 

Is there perhaps not some jingoistic irony in the fact that one presidential 
candidate wants to "make America Great (again)" and repeatedly trumps the 
slogan "America First", while the restaurant owned by Ahmad Khan Rahami's 
family is named "First American Fried Chicken". 

"Something will have gone out of us as a people if we ever let the remaining 
wilderness be destroyed ... We simply need that wild country available to us, 
even if we never do more than drive to its edge and look in."

Stegner, The

From: "Nancy Tognan" <nancy.tognan AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 19 Sep 2016 21:22:31 -0400
The Queens County Bird Club will be meeting at the Alley Pond Environmental
Center, 228-06 Northern Blvd Douglaston, NY 11362   
>Map of location<

Prof. Andrew Greller will present Birds, Vegetation, and Natural History of
Taiwan"

     In 2013, Andy, his wife Roberta, and his friend Kurt Steinwascher
contracted with Richard Foster, resident ornithologist in Taiwan, to lead a
two-week bird tour of the island.  They visited many parks and preserves,
travelling by van from Taipei to Tainan, crossing the Chungyang Shan
Mountains up to the highest paved pass, then returning via the coast to
Taipei.  This talk presents many photos of the beautiful birds of Taiwan.

      Andy Greller taught botany, ecology, and plant geography at Queens
College for 30 years, retiring from teaching in 1998.  He continues to
conduct research, publish articles, and edit books on local and world
vegetation.  He leads local field trips for plants and gives occasional
lectures to natural history groups.  Andy is Vice-President of the Long
Island Botanical Society, past-President of the Torrey Botanical Society,
and is a member of many other scientific societies, including the Queens
County Bird Club.

favor Green Bouy 49. It was seen extensively yesterday from both sides of the 
lake but mostly from Lower Lake Road on the west side and was reported again 
today on the same bouy.      A question. Which county is this bird in when 
it is on the bouy?

Subject: Reminder BBC Evening Presentation
From: Dennis Hrehowsik <deepseagangster AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 19 Sep 2016 16:37:40 -0400
*Tomorrow, Tuesday, September 20th, 7:00 P.M.*

*Great Gull Island*


*Presenters: Helen Hays and Joe DiCostanzo*


*Location: Brooklyn Public Library Central Branch
 at Grand Army Plaza*

Helen Hays and Joe DiCostanzo, researchers at the Museum of Natural
History, will present highlights from more than 40 years of research,
monitoring and habitat support of the nesting Roseate and Common terns on
Great Gull Island in Eastern Long Island Sound. Currently a record 9,500
Common tern pairs and 1300 Roseate tern pairs nest there. Discovery of
abnormal nestlings sounded the early warnings on toxic levels of PCBs in
the Sound in the 1970’s. A large number of volunteers assist during the
breeding season, and the project has partners in South America where they
discovered the first concentration of Roseate terns in the non-breeding
season.

Subject: Lesser Black-backed Gulls, Southwestern Suffolk, LI
From: Shaibal Mitra <Shaibal.Mitra AT csi.cuny.edu>
Date: Mon, 19 Sep 2016 15:40:23 +0000
Given the date and the rainy weather, I checked the gull flocks at Robert 
Moses, Captree, and Heckscher SPs this morning and found nine Lesser 
Black-backed Gulls: one juv, two first-summer/second-winter (SY), and five 
older imms at RMSP, and one SY at Heckscher. As is often the case, the SYs at 
RMSP were quite different looking, with one being small and dark-headed and the 
other big, heavy-billed, and pale-headed. Photos of both these birds, plus 
several others, can be found here: 


https://www.flickr.com/photos/96951581 AT N02/29498838960/

I was surprised to see zero adults, but I'm sure there are many more birds 
grounded along the coast today.

Subject: eBird.org: Recent Additions to County Checklists
From: Ben Cacace <bcacace AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 18 Sep 2016 20:23:00 -0400
When working on the wiki for NYS eBird Hotspots I continually compare the
previous bar chart list with the current one and can spot any new additions
and/or deletions by species. By going to the maps or the 'Overview' I can
then determine the date the species was added to each county. Some are from
newly submitted checklists from several decades ago.

This is not easy to see on the eBird.org website. On the Overview page you
can sort on 'First Seen' but if the species was added from a checklist
dating from months or years ago it won't appear at the top of the list.

Green represents a New York State first and yellow shows species added for
the first time this year.

Subject: Central Park NYC - Sunday Sept. 18, 2016 - 12 R-b Nuthatches, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, 8 Wood Warbler Species
From: Deborah Allen <dallenyc AT earthlink.net>
Date: Sun, 18 Sep 2016 15:56:01 -0400
Central Park NYC 
Sunday Sept. 18, 2016
OBS: Robert DeCandido, PhD, m.ob. on bird walk starting from the dock on Turtle 
Pond at 9am. 



A bit slow today. Highlights included 12 Red-breasted Nuthatches (5 locations), 
a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and 8 Wood Warbler Species. Red-breasted Nuthatch 
numbers vary from day to day with an active migration going on. We estimate 
fewer than 100 in the entire park on any given day, perhaps a few more on a 
good day up to now. Numbers may increase in October. The most reliable 
locations for Red-breasted Nuthatches are areas with conifers like the Pinetum 
& Shakespeare Garden. 


Birds like American Robins, European Starling, Brown Thrashers, and others have 
been feeding in the Tupelo, a.k.a. Sour Gum, at the Tupelo Field. The oily 
fruit is a favorite of thrushes. 


Despite a thorough search no Philadelphia Vireos or Red-headed Woodpeckers 
turned up in the Ramble today.

Subject: Philadelphia Vireo - HLSP - Yes

The previously reported philly vireo was just seen with two red-eyed vireos and 
some other warblers on the western dirt path as you walk towards the dog walk. 
Seemed to be the only place in the park with some decent activity right now.

From: Thomas Fiore <tomfi2 AT earthlink.net>
Date: Sat, 17 Sep 2016 09:36:22 -0400
Friday & Saturday, 16 & 17 September, 2016
Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City

On Friday 9/16 in Central Park aII six of the northeast's breeding  
species of Vireo were found, with PHILADELPHIA Vireo the most-sought  
amongst these around here & these were seen not onIy in the Ramble  
area but also at the Pond area in the park's SE corner, & as reported  
by Gabriel Willow (a fine NYC Audubon bird-waIk leader), in the north  
end by the Blockhouse - and in a few other spots on prior days there -  
at Ieast one continuing in the north end (Great HiII) this Saturday  
9/17, another one (or more) in the RambIe again as in prior days - a  
few Blue-headed Vireos now in, perhaps first seen Thursday 9/15 by the  
large group of NYC Audubon birders in the park led by Joe Giunta  
(another fine birding guide); & a few White-eyed, Yellow-throated,  
plenty of Red-eyed, & some Warbling Vireos (these 4 latter species aII  
variably breeding in NYC parks & green-spaces) - these in addition to  
the 22 or more warbler species present on Friday with 14 or more of  
those present in the north end on the day; a nice highlight among them  
the 3 or perhaps 4 different Cape May Warblers atop the Great HiII aII  
day (thru 6 pm) in some of the elms.

Some other species that have arrived in Central recently, in modest to  
moderate numbers (with reinforcing numbers of some), include these:

American Black Duck, Northern Shoveler (additionals to those present  
for some weeks),  Green-winged Teal,  Ruddy Duck (in this past week),   
Osprey,  Bald Eagle,  Northern Harrier,  Sharp-shinned Hawk,  Cooper's  
Hawk,  American Kestrel (migrants),  Killdeer (fly-bys),  Laughing  
Gull  (every day this past week at the reservoir, times of their  
visits vary but most likely in mid-morning to mid-pm),  Black-billed  
Cuckoo (Friday 9/16, north end),  Yellow-billed Cuckoo  (every day  
this past week),  Chimney Swift (migrating & some feeding for extended  
times over the park),   Ruby-throated Hummingbird  (multiples  
migrating during days & some feeding in the park every day this past  
week),  Red-headed Woodpecker (adult in the Ramble may be present this  
weekend, best found by QUIET listening as well as observing),  Yellow- 
bellied Sapsucker (a few),  Eastern Phoebe (greater numbers than prior  
weeks),   Blue Jay (in diurnal movements on some days),  Tree Swallow   
(high flyovers as is very typical this time of year into later in the  
fall at Central Park),  Barn Swallow,   Red-breasted Nuthatch (hardly  
new, but they keep on moving, daily dose of dozens),  Brown Creeper,   
Carolina Wren (more),  House Wren,  Golden-crowned Kinglet (bit early!  
9/16),  Ruby-crowned Kinglet (a few more now),  Blue-gray Gnatcatcher  
(8+ on Friday 9/16),   Gray-cheeked Thrush  (a few of this type, could  
be the rarer one as well),   Swainson's Thrush (many moving, not so  
many stopping in),  Wood Thrush  (same as for Swainson's),  American  
Robin (also some moving now),  Gray Catbird (lots moving),  Northern  
Mockingbird (yes, some movements, whether more local or not is  
debatable),  Brown Thrasher (fair numbers but not near peak yet),   
Cedar Waxwing  (many have been in Central taking what fruits they can  
find, modest movement as well),  Warblers of at least these species:   
Blue-winged, Tennessee, Nashville, Northern Parula, Yellow, Chestnut- 
sided, Magnolia, Cape May, Black-throated Blue, Black-throated Green,  
Pine, Prairie, Palm, Bay-breasted, Blackpoll, Black-and-white,  
American Redstart, Ovenbird, Northern Waterthrush, Common  
Yellowthroat, Wilson's, and Canada Warbler[s],   Scarlet Tanager (more  
passed by than stopped in to visit),  Chipping Sparrow,  Savannah  
Sparrow (few, Saturday 9/17),  Lincoln's Sparrow,  Swamp Sparrow,   
White-throated Sparrow,  Dark-eyed Junco (few),  Rose-breasted  
Grosbeak  (many more passing by than those that stopped in),
Indigo Bunting (in modest numbers),  Bobolink (including 20+ in  
diurnal flight over the Meer at 7:15 am on Saturday 9/17),  Red-winged  
Blackbird (few noted in passing),
Brown-headed Cowbird,  Baltimore Oriole,  American Goldfinch (in  
modest numbers this past week) & of course many many other species  
still around, or resident here.

thanks to all who offered reports and to the many who bird quietly, &  
with courtesy and respect to the birds and their fellow birders.

Previously posted shorebirds are at the raunt but the one-eyed Baird"s was
picked off by two Peregrine Falcons in front of us. (One picked it up and
dropped it to another Falcon. They flew north.)

A one-eyed Baird's Sandpiper, found by Steve Walter, is at the Raunt on the 
East Pond. Also a Western Sandpiper and two Stilt Sandpipers. The trio of 
Caspian Terns continues at the north end. 


Perhaps most interesting is a juvenile Dunlin, also at the Raunt.

Good birding,

The Philly Vireo at Hempstead Lake continues at the southern portion of the dog 
run's western edge. Many Red-eyes and several Warblings also present, so ID 
carefully. A few other migrants present but nothing else unusual yet. Park was 
very quiet until about 10 minutes ago, lots of birds foraging in the sun-warmed 
leaves now. 


Cheers!

BEGIN TAPE

Greetings. This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, September 16th
2016 at 7pm. The highlights of today's tape are a light show spectacular
including CONNECTICUT WARBLER and YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT plus BUFF-BREASTED
and UPLAND SANDPIPERS, WHIMBRELS, RED-HEADED WOODPECKER, GOLDEN-WINGED
WARBLER, DICKCISSEL and CLAY-COLORED SPARROW.

It seems this week's highlight, given a reasonable but otherwise
unspectacular amount of migratory activity, was provided by an event,
namely the September 11th Tribute in Light Memorial in lower Manhattan. The
powerful lights aimed skyward from just after 9pm on the 11th to after 5am
the next morning attracted many thousands of birds during an apparently
heavy night for migration. The distracted migrants, often hundreds at a
time, were seen swirling about the beams which were fortunately turned off
for short periods so the birds could reorient and continue south. The
overall volume was estimated at close to 20,000 or more birds the large
majority of which were wood warblers. Highlights among the non-warblers
featured a calling UPLAND SANDPIPER, AMERICAN WOODCOCK, a snipe, presumably
WILSON'S, a few cuckoos and a couple of opportunistic PEREGRINE FALCONS. Of
the warblers able to be identified the larger numbers involved OVENBIRD,
BLACK-AND-WHITE, COMMON YELLOWTHROAT, NORTHERN PARULA, MAGNOLIA, YELLOW,
CHESTNUT-SIDED, BLACK-THROATED BLUE and the most plentiful AMERICAN
REDSTART. Among the more unusual were a few each of CONNECTICUT, HOODED and
WILSON'S WARBLERS and YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT. Hopefully the birds continued
on their journey not too much the worse for wear.

Thursday brought a nice influx of PHILADELPHIA VIREOS into the area with
about 4 noted in Central Park, at least 2 in Prospect Park and singles at
several other city, Long Island and Westchester parks with over 15 noted.

Among the rarer warblers a male GOLDEN-WINGED was spotted in Prospect
Thursday and single CONNECTICUTS were enjoyed in Central Park last Saturday
and in Prospect and Alley Pond Parks yesterday. A YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT was
in Central Saturday with singles seen Monday at Robert Moses State Park and
at Montauk. Other warblers moving through this week have included
WORM-EATING, TENNESSEE, MOURNING, HOODED, CAPE MAY and BAY-BREASTED.

This week DICKCISSELS have also appeared along the coast with one at Robert
Moses State Park from Saturday to Tuesday and one at Jones Beach West End
during the week to yesterday. CLAY-COLORED SPARROW was reported from Moses
last Saturday and Drier-Offerman Park in Brooklyn Sunday with 2 BLUE
GROSBEAKS noted in Manhasset yesterday. These all species to keep an eye
out for.

Other interesting birds in the city parks this week featured an AMERICAN
BITTERN in Central last weekend, VIRGINIA RAIL in both Central and
Prospect, both cuckoos and still a few COMMON NIGHTHAWKS plus OLIVE-SIDED,
YELLOW-BELLIED and other flycatchers and LINCOLN'S SPARROW. An adult
RED-HEADED WOODPECKER has been around the Ramble in Central Park since
Monday.

On the shorebird front about 50 AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVERS and up to 11
BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPERS were on the sod fields on the east side of Osborn
Road just south of Sound Avenue early in the week and another BUFF-BREASTED
was at Plumb Beach in Brooklyn Saturday. WHIMBRELS included one at
Nickerson Beach Saturday and one at Cupsogue County Park Sunday and 2 on
Monday, 2 at Moriches Bay Monday and 1 at Jones Beach West End Thursday.
Other Cupsogue shorebirds last Sunday included 158 RED KNOT and 2 PECTORAL
SANDPIPERS among the 17 species there while ROYAL TERNS reached 56 there
Saturday with others continuing along the coast. CASPIAN TERNS have
included up to 3 at Mecox and 2 at Breezy Point Monday. Single LESSER
BLACK-BACKED GULLS were spotted at Nickerson Beach Saturday and Cupsogue
Sunday and others should be around the coast.

To phone in reports on Long Island, call Tony Lauro at (631) 734-4126 or
weekdays call Tom Burke at (212) 372-1483.

This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the
National Audubon Society. Thank you for calling.

Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City

A fair amount of 'drop-in' from the Wed. night-Thurs. morning's  
nocturnal migration, which was quite good region-wide - Central Park  
probably did not equal Brooklyn's Prospect Park which enjoyed so many  
special birds, including their diversity of warbler sightings, but  
there were still at least 19 species of warblers in Central (park- 
wide) on Thursday, and as reported widely region-wide, a good flight  
of Philadelphia Vireo was noted as well in Central with sightings from  
both the north end & the Ramble, which may have had more than 1  
individual of that species or at least, more than 1 location.

Some additional species showing again Thursday & in a more "expected"  
time-frame include Lincoln's Sparrow and Indigo Bunting, as well as  
some diurnal raptors, including a "few" Broad-winged Hawks, a species  
now coming down through New England in their peak flight period for  
the southbound migration, with thousands being seen at multiple watch- 
sites (in New England but with some very near to New York state).

Once again, Red-breasted Nuthatches maintained a strong presence in  
Central, and these of course are becoming nearly ubiquitous in some  
well-birded (as well as out-of-the-spotlight) sites, region-wide.

thanks to all who offered reports, and to the many who bird quietly  
and with courtesy and respect to the birds and their fellow birders.

Subject: Orchard Beach Lagoon, Pelham Bay Park, Bronx
From: Jack Rothman <jacroth1 AT gmail.com>

A few birders gathered at the Lagoon opposite the Orchard Beach parking lot 
this morning, for about three hours, to look for raptors. Winds were from the 
northeast, so conditions were not great. 

Mayra and Noa Cruz, Rafael Samanez, Bob DeCandido and later Glen Davis joined 
the observers. 


We had two adult Bald eagles, five Peregrine Falcons, three Red-tailed Hawks, 
14 Osprey and a Coopers Hawk. There was some drama as the peregrines tended not 
to tolerate other raptors in their airspace. 

Other species seen were Gb Heron, Gr Egrets, several Cormorants and Flickers.
It was a pleasant way to spend the morning on a beautiful day.

The park was quite active mid to late morning with the highlight being a very 
bright Connecticut Warbler on the peninsula. Other highlights included two 
Philadelphia Vireos and 16 species of warbler (without seeing a Golden-winged 
Warbler reported by others). 


A complete list with some photos can be seen at this Ebird link.
