On Saturday, October 9th Karen Evans found a Dickcissel in a pocket park, 
Mathews-Palmer Playground, on 46th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues in 
Manhattan. As is typical of Dickcissels, it was foraging with House Sparrows. 
Unlike the House Sparrows it had a white throat, distinct, black malar stripes, 
white eye rings, rusty wing coverts, a yellow wash in the submoustachial 
stripes, as well as a sand-colored back with heavy, black streaks.

*Newly arrived migrants to an area sometimes reorient themselves, a behavior 
more likely to be seen early in the day.
 
**The high-fat berries of Black Tupelo (Nyssa sylvatica), a.k.a.Sour Gum, are a 
good source of energy for migratory birds including thrushes, mimic thrushes, 
waxwings, and woodpeckers.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Mine Torne Rd. still closed?


Does anyone know if Mine Torne Rd. at West Point is still closed to the public? 
 I assumed it was since I haven't seen mention of it since then many moons ago. 
 I'd love to go there again and see the goodies I used to over the years.  I 
rarely left the road since there was so much to see along it, plus I always 
wanted to avoid meeting up with military people.

The Western Tanager discovered in Carl Schurz Park on December 11th by Jay 
Zenmann continued today, favoring a large Siberian Elm next to the Catbird 
Playground. The bird visits sap wells made by a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. 

The Carl Schurz Park Conservancy has a blog written by Lucie Young. Here's the 
post from December 2020, with info about and photos of the Western Tanager:
