Sparrows galore on 4th Monday Saw Mill River Audubon bird walk at Croton
Point today with 10 sparrow species seen on main walk:
Chipping (2),
Field (1),
White crowned (5),
White-throated (21),
Vesper (6),
Savannah (12),
Song (92),
Lincoln's (2 total, 1 on main walk and 1 by another observer),
and Swamp (at least 11),
as well as a few Dark-eyed Juncos now.

Separate observers reported a Clay-Colored Sparrow as well in grasslands
between landfill and Croton Bay.

Two Eastern Meadowlarks seen twice flying together over landfill

Small flock of Pipits (7), many Palm and Yellow-rumped Warblers, a couple
of American Kestrels and a Northern Harrier also on landfill grasslands.

At the end of our walk, we observed an interesting territorial-like display
by pair of adult Bald Eagles vocalizing and flying together and interacting
with a third adult, perhaps a passing migrant (?). A pair of adult Bald
Eagles has been consistently seen around Croton Point this year through
spring and summer.  A fourth adult and a subadult Bald Eagle were also seen
earlier in the walk.

Two Pectoral Sandpipers with one lingering Semipalmated Sandpiper
continuing in the wetland area by ballfield.  [High count of each observed
of over past week has been 10 Pectoral Sandpipers and 3 Semipalms.]
Greater Yellowlegs in puddle in fenced parking lot behind ballfield parking
at end of the walk.
