[nysbirds-l] Bryant Park NYC

2019-09-09 Thread Gabriel Willow
I led the first of my fall twice-weekly NYC Audubon bird walks in Bryant Park 
this morning. We had fairly low diversity but good numbers of several Warbler 
species: about a dozen Common Yellowthroat, 5 Northern Waterthrush, several 
Ovenbirds and American Redstarts, a B Warbler, and my FOS White-throated 
Sparrows. Also of interest were a family of recently-fledged Gray Catbirds (at 
least 3 fledgelings); this is the second year I’ve observed them nesting in the 
park.

There was also an Empidonax high in a planetree, likely a Least.

Good Fall Birding,

Gabriel Willow

[nysbirds-l] Bryant Park NYC: 14+ species

2016-09-26 Thread Gabriel Willow
Good movement overnight, with an influx of later-season migrants this morning. 
On my twice-weekly Bryant Park walk (free, Mondays 8-9am & Thursdays 5-6pm) we 
spotted some nice diversity in an hour, mostly around the central lawn area. I 
suspect there were many birds we missed, especially in the treetops; if anyone 
is headed to work late or can go on their lunch break, definitely worth a look!

We found:

Rock Pigeon
Eastern Phoebe (1, treetops)
Gray Catbird (7+, more than in recent days)
Ruby-crowned Kinglet (1, FOS, trees)
European Starling (recent breeding residents in the park, in small numbers)
Ovenbird (1)
Blackpoll Warbler (FOS, bright Imm. female, feeding on lawn, very confiding)
Common Yellowthroat (many)
Lincoln's Sparrow (1, found by Jeanne Tao)
Swamp Sparrow (2, on lawn)
Song Sparrow (1, lawn)
Dark-eyed Junco (1, FOS, lawn)
White-throated Sparrow (5, lawn & shrubs)
House Sparrow (many)

Fall is here!

[nysbirds-l] Bryant Park, NYC: Chuck-will's-widow continues

2015-04-17 Thread Anders Peltomaa
Hi all,
Before going to work I spent a few minutes looking for The Chuck. It's
still here.

Today it is roosting on a branch right above the most northern path inside
the park. If you stand on that path near the bathrooms in the NE corner,
look West and up above the path, you'll find the Chuck.

good urban birding,

Re:[nysbirds-l] Bryant Park NYC Mourning Warbler - No

2014-05-22 Thread Taylor, Robert Michael
Hi Everyone,

During my lunch break (2:00 - ~2:15pm) I went with my good friend, NYC birder 
Mike, to try and relocate the reported Mourning Warbler but didn't have any 
luck.  (other birders were also out looking)  We looked in the SE corner and by 
the shed area which is now glovered up with leaf bags of post-blossoming bulb 
plants.

We found the normal White Throated Sparrows, Common Yellowthroats, and 
Ovenbirds - Mike spotted a really gorgeous looking Wood Thrush.  The Wood 
Thrush was pulling up a few worms at a time and having lunch.

Good birding,

[nysbirds-l] Bryant Park NYC Lincoln's Sparrow etc.

2014-05-12 Thread gabriel willow
I led my twice-weekly bird walk in Bryant Park (that little patch of green 
between 40th  42nd St from 5th to 6th Ave) this morning from 8-9am.  Things 
are really picking up there!

Most of the activity was high in the treetops, with a few birds skulking in 
flower beds and various corners.  There were many warblers way up in the 
foliage that I couldn't see well enough to ID, so this is almost certainly an 
incomplete list.

The most abundant migrants were Gray Catbirds and Ovenbirds, which seemed to be 
under every shrub and table, and confusingly were high in the London Plane 
trees as well.

Highlights of the walk were 2 late-seeming Prairie Warblers (a male and a 
female), and a Lincoln's Sparrow that landed in a plane at the NE corner of the 
lawn, near the Library.

Full list:

Double-crested Cormorant (flyover flock, headed West)
Rock Pigeon
Red-eyed Vireo
European Starling (actually unusual in the park, but a pair is now nesting)
American Robin
Swainson's Thrush
Wood Thrush
Gray Catbird (many)
Northern Parula
Yellow Warbler
Magnolia Warbler
Black-throated Blue Warbler (several)
Prairie Warbler (2)
Black-and-White Warbler
Ovenbird
Common Yellowthroat
Eastern Towhee
White-throated Sparrow
Lincoln's Sparrow
Baltimore Oriole (flyover)
House Sparrow

May the Birds Be With You,

Gabriel Willow

[nysbirds-l] Bryant Park, NYC: Wood Thrush, and a few new arrivals

2014-05-09 Thread Taylor, Robert Michael
Hi Everyone,

I stopped by Bryant Park with NYC birder Mike during our lunch break for a 
quick look by the shed...was quickly joined by another birder (I don't name 
names unless I hear otherwise) It has been slower than last year but hopefully 
picking up now...saw  Hermit Thrush, Ovenbirds, White Throated Sparrow, and a 
Common Yellowthroat.  A Wood Thrush also made a quick appearance.  Besides the 
Hermit  Thrush, most birds seemed skittish.

Wish I could have stayed longer - have a feeling there was more to find.

Good birding,

[nysbirds-l] Bryant Park, NYC 5-5

2014-05-05 Thread gabriel willow
I led the Monday edition of my twice-weekly tour of Bryant Park this morning.  
BP has been strangely quiet this Spring, especially recently compared to 
certain *other* small urban parks in NYC.  Today we managed a fairly 
respectable list of 20 or so species, although we had to work for them.

White-throated Sparrows were the most evident species, hopping and singing on 
all sides.  Gray Catbirds were also much in evidence, a huge change considering 
I hadn't seen any at all before Friday.  Today we spotted a dozen or more.  
Also seen (mostly single birds) were an unidentified small flycatcher high in 
the trees near the SW corner of the park (I think it was an Eastern Wood-Pewee 
based on long primary projection, but it looked very yellow could've been 
the morning light), an American Robin, Hermit Thrush, House Wren, 
Black-and-white Warbler, Ovenbirds, a singing Northern Waterthrush (which went 
unseen), Common Yellowthroat, Eastern Towhee, Swamp Sparrow and a flyover 
Baltimore Oriole.

In front of the Library, there was a Wood Thrush hanging out in the honey 
locusts with a Brown Thrasher, and two Turkey Vultures sailed overhead down 5th 
Ave.

Not great, not bad...

Cheers,

Gabriel Willow

[nysbirds-l] Bryant Park NYC Lincoln's Sparrow et al

2013-09-26 Thread Gabriel Willow
I led my weekly NYC Audubon bird walk in Bryant Park this morning.  Warblers 
were few, but sparrows were surprisingly diverse.

The highlight was the presence of at least 3 Lincoln's Sparrows, a Swamp 
Sparrow, and an influx of White-throated Sparrows. Common Yellowthroats of 
various ages  sexes seemed to be in every shrub as well.

We also had a pair of Brown Thrashers  a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.

2 of the Lincoln's were in the begonia patch with the birdbath on the north 
side of the park, if anyone wants to look for 'em.

Here's the full list:

Peregrine Falcon (flyover)
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker

Ovenbird
Song Sparrow

[nysbirds-l] Bryant Park, NYC sightings

2012-10-11 Thread gabriel willow
This morning on my weekly Bryant Park/ NYC Audubon walk, we had some 
interesting sightings.
Of note was a roving flock of Tufted Titmice in the tops of the London Plane 
trees.  Although a common species, they seem to stick to their territories in 
Central Park or wherever, and I don't recall having seen them before in Bryant 
Park.  There were about a half-dozen birds.
Also present were a couple of Northern Cardinals (another unusual species for 
the park), a Hermit Thrush (FOS for me), numerous Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, a 
Winter Wren, Lincoln's Sparrow, Swamp Sparrow, and very large numbers of 
White-throated Sparrow.  One participant in my walk (who is a fairly 
experienced birder) reported seeing a White-crowned Sparrow earlier in the day, 
but I failed to spot it.  She saw it near the public restroom, so that'd be 
worth keeping an eye out for.
In front of the Library, we found more Sapsuckers, a lone Ruby-crowned Kinglet, 
and a very unusual White-throated Sparrow that I suspect was a hybrid between a 
WTSP and a Song Sparrow.  It looked like a typical brown-striped morph but had 
heavy malar stripes and was as heavily streaked below as a SOSP, with a central 
breast spot.  I've seen streaked young WTSPs, but never as coarsely and heavily 
as this bird.
Here's the whole list:

Bright sun, no clouds.  First time urban birder.  I work in Manhattan, but
have never brought binocs. Birded south side along 40th, mostly in corner
nearest library (activity greatest in areas where canopy was still in the
late afternoon sun) All in plane trees unless otherwise noted.

Male orchard oriole - feeding on plane seed pods at top of canopy neck
breaking angle
Palm warbler, also feeding on lawn
Catbird
Brown thrasher - in lower branches and shrubbery
Eastern kingbird - actively hunting in tops of trees
Probable blue-headed vireo.  Strong white eye ring, never saw sides of
wings for barring. Size right, behavior right
Ovenbird - heard not seen

BW warbler , NE corner near library in trees amongst tables, very active,
perhaps more than one it was moving so fast.

[nysbirds-l] Bryant Park, NYC, 12/25

2011-12-26 Thread Tom Fiore
Sunday - Christmas Day, 25 December, 2011 -

Manhattan, N.Y. City

The lingering-birds scene remained similar to recent weeks at Bryant  
Park - I was able to photograph the 2 Yellow-breasted Chats, and see / 
or photograph the 2 Common Yellowthroats, at least 2 Ovenbirds, 3 Gray  
Catbirds, plus (views only of a) Lincoln's Sparrow, Eastern Towhee,  
and about 75+ White-throated Sparrows, in the park entire... the more  
boldly-marked of the 2 Chats was near Sixth Ave. as well as in the  
skating rink enclosure with a lot of House Sparrows, and the less- 
boldly marked Chat along the Fifth Ave. line of shrubs as well as the  
east (main) face of the N.Y. Public Library main building, on the 42nd  
Street side.  Male  female Common Yellowthroats were in different  
areas; 2 Ovenbirds were as far removed as is possible in that park,  
from each other; 2 Catbirds were together and one far from those,  
while Lincoln's Sparrow sightings were all closer to the 42 St.   
Sixth Ave. 'corner' than to other corners of the park... and a male  
towhee joined all the ruckus with easily 1,000 people in the park at  
10-11 a.m. - my actual time spent seeking  finding all the noted  
birds was just 45+ minutes.

In Central Park, a young Red-headed Woodpecker remained near the NW  
part of Hallet Sanctuary, a bit north of the Sixth Ave. entrance at  
Central Park South. Also still in Central are a Baltimore Oriole, an  
Eastern Phoebe, and a nice variety of other birds. There were Hermit  
Thrush in Central Park  Bryant Park.  Any other thrush species  
(besides American Robin) in winter is rare or very rare in our area  
and ought be well-studied and also well-documented.  Swamp Sparrow in  
Central Park, at the Pond. (Not really rare in winter but a bit  
uncommon, and can be either obliging or very skulking, in general.)

Good birding,

Tom Fiore,
Manhattan
