Doug Gochfeld and I visited both locations in the hopes of discovering any
lingering late season insectivores. While flycatchers were nonexistent, our
efforts were rewarded with 5 species of warbler, the most notable for the
date a Northern Parula on the east side of Hendrix Creek. A quick look in
Ebird shows only one Kings County record of a long staying 1999 individual
in Prospect Park lingering into the first week of December. November 9th is
the next latest date.
Other highlights included:
(3) Orange-crowned Warblers-both locations
(2) Pine Warbler-Hendrix
(2) Yellow-rumped Warbler-Canarsie
(11) Ruby-crowned Kinglet-both locations
Waterfowl numbers are building at Hendrix with over 90 Green-winged Teal.
Coots and Pied-billed Grebes are still hanging in. Only 16 days to go till
