Yesterday at approximately 3 pm, I saw a Brewster's (this time I remembered the 's) 200 yards south of the traffic circle at the end of Ironwood Drive. -- NYSbirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsWELCOME.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsRULES.htm
I visited Ironwood Road again today and encountered the Brewster's Warbler. It was quite close to where it was Thursday. See previous message below. Three of us had it around 9:30. It is not an easy bird to find. It tends to appear for a few minutes and then disappear for 30 or minutes.
The previously reported Golden-winged Warbler on closer inspection at very close range is a male Brewster's Warbler. Backcross adult male. Thin black eye line, bright yellow cap, clean white underbelly and double yellow wing bars. Lilly Pond Preserve. Robert Proniewych -- NYSbirds-L List Info:
I saw a Brewster's warbler at Ironwood Drive this morning at about 9:30 a m. Head north from the circle. Don't count the first metal structure holding power lines but afterwards go through three pairs of those metal structures heading north. About 200 yards beyond that I saw the warbler...Martin
