I've pulled together a list of species seen over the weekend on Governors Island by collating the data from 10 checklists (8 from Sat. and 2 from Sun.) by extracting the Common Names of species seen (excluding taxa ie. crow sp.) from the checklist view using Excel.
The highest individual checklist was 34 spp. The aggregate for both days is 45 spp. Below is a list of the uncommon species for New York County and a complete list for the weekend. *Uncommon NY County birds based on an eBird data algorithm:* Yellow-crowned Night-Heron Osprey Killdeer Least Sandpiper Semipalmated Sandpiper Spotted Sandpiper Lesser Yellowlegs Common Tern Ruby-throated Hummingbird Veery Lark Sparrow *Complete list:* Canada Goose Gadwall (Sat. only) Mallard American Black Duck Double-crested Cormorant Black-crowned Night-Heron (Sat. only) Yellow-crowned Night-Heron Osprey (Sat. only) Killdeer Least Sandpiper Semipalmated Sandpiper (Sat. only) Spotted Sandpiper Lesser Yellowlegs Laughing Gull Ring-billed Gull Herring Gull Great Black-backed Gull Common Tern Rock Pigeon Mourning Dove Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Sat. only) Downy Woodpecker (Sun. only) Northern Flicker American Kestrel (Sat. only) Eastern Wood-Pewee (Sat. only) Eastern Kingbird (Sat. only) American Crow Fish Crow (Sun. only) Veery (Sat. only) American Robin Gray Catbird Northern Mockingbird European Starling Cedar Waxwing (Sat. only) Black-and-white Warbler (Sat. only) Common Yellowthroat (Sat. only) American Redstart (Sat. only) Yellow Warbler (Sat. only) Lark Sparrow (Sat. only) Song Sparrow Northern Cardinal Brown-headed Cowbird Common Grackle (Sat. only) American Goldfinch House Sparrow -- Ben Cacace Manhattan, NYC Wiki for NYS eBird Hotspots <http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Birding+in+New+York> Facebook Discussion for NYS eBird Hotspots: Q & A <https://www.facebook.com/groups/NYeBirdHotspots/> -- NYSbirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsWELCOME.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsRULES.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://email@example.com/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/NYSBirds-L 3) http://birding.aba.org/maillist/NY01 Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
