There was a decent morning flight at Coney Island Creek, Brooklyn this morning. Echoing recent reports, Red-breasted Nuthatches (26) are moving in earnest. Surprising, were 5 European Goldfinch making the jump to NJ. Twelve warbler species were highlighted by Cape May, Black-throated Green, Black-throated Blue, Prairie Warbler and Northern Parula. An Olive-sided Flycatcher perched briefly in the westernmost trees and the increasingly present Common Ravens were cavorting over the apartment buildings to the SE. The Common Tern flock has built to between 250-300 birds and is quite impressive for NYC.
