From: beachmed AT optonline.net
 
Seen at about 9:50AM, feeding at the wash over area at Tiana Beach Bayside- one American Avocet. Photos taken.
The bird has flown west - and hopefully can be refound, perhaps at Pikes or Cupsogue.

Subject: Croton Point Park Western Kingbird and Upland Sandpiper
Date: Sun Aug 18 2019 19:09 pm
From: aburke173 AT gmail.com
 
Correction: Western Kingbird was at northeast side of landfill, not northwest. Was no longer present there around 5pm when I and others checked again but apparently was also missing there at that time yesterday, so may still be around. (Meant to update from field but phone died.)
Good luck to anyone who may be trying tomorrow or beyond.

Western Kingbird was present (may very well still be) when I and others were last looking (maybe 2:45?) at northwest end of landfill west of ballfields. It repeatedly returned to bare snags on north side of the road there.
At the landfill, a skittish Upland Sandpiper continues, occasionally flying around giving good looks and listens to flight calls, but hard to see on the ground. It's been ranging over most of the area of the landfill, seemingly not faithful to any particular spot. Generally the western/southern part of the landfill.
Good birding,

Not sure where we were in the water, but we were within sight of land and the Verrazano bridge

Subject: Croton Point Park Western Kingbird and Upland Sandpiper
Date: Sun Aug 18 2019 15:20 pm
From: aburke173 AT gmail.com
 
Western Kingbird was present (may very well still be) when I and others were last looking (maybe 2:45?) at northwest end of landfill west of ballfields. It repeatedly returned to bare snags on north side of the road there.
At the landfill, a skittish Upland Sandpiper continues, occasionally flying around giving good looks and listens to flight calls, but hard to see on the ground. It's been ranging over most of the area of the landfill, seemingly not faithful to any particular spot. Generally the western/southern part of the landfill.
Good birding,

Subject: Bridled Tern continues on Great Gull Island, Suffolk Co.
Date: Sat Aug 17 2019 14:15 pm
From: jdicost AT nyc.rr.com
 
At 3:00 pm the adult Bridled Tern that has spent the summer at the Common and Roseate tern colony on Great Gull Island was flying and calling over the western portion of the island.

If the frigatebird seen today on the CT shore would come by it would seem more like the Florida Keys than Long Island Sound!

BEGIN TAPE

Greetings. This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, August 16th 2019 at 8pm. The highlights of today's tape are WHITE-WINGED DOVE, a probable SAY'S PHOEBE, BRIDLED TERN, WILSON'S PHALAROPE, MARBLED GODWIT, CASPIAN TERN, GULL-BILLED TERN, BLACK TERN, PROTHONOTARY WARBLER, DICKCISSEL, BLUE GROSBEAK and more.

Some decent early Fall like flight conditions occurring during the week produced a few very interesting birds. Watches last Saturday and Sunday mornings at Coney Island Creek in Brooklyn uncovered a PROTHONOTARY WARBLER seen on Saturday followed Sunday by a WHITE-WINGED DOVE photographed as it circled over Seagate before disappearing and out at Robert Moses State Park a flycatcher flying west passed two observers Saturday morning was by plumage thought to probably be a SAY'S PHOEBE. Unfortunately it moved by too quickly to be photographed. Also at Moses a DICKCISSEL was heard overhead both Saturday and Sunday and a BLUE GROSBEAK was recorded Saturday. Between these two sites a good variety of early Fall migrants included EASTERN KINGBIRD, PURPLE MARTIN, CLIFF and BANK SWALLOWS and a seasonal selection of warblers plus the occasional BOBOLINK and the like.

Out on Great Gull Island the adult BRIDLED TERN was spotted again Tuesday on the north side of the island. An immature BLACK TERN also appeared. The numbers of Common and Roseate Terns are now dropping quickly there so the BRIDLED'S continued stay may be limited.

In Central Park certainly the week's highlight was a male PROTHONOTARY WARBLER found today in the southeastern corner of the park at The Pond by the Hallett Sanctuary.

In the Bronx Jerome Reservoir was recently drained for repairs and the low water conditions have attracted a nice variety of shorebirds including 2 WILSON'S PHALAROPES spotted Wednesday and still present today. Also present since Wednesday have been a WHITE-RUMPED and 3 PECTORAL SANDPIPERS, some BLACK-BELLIED and SEMIPALMATED PLOVERS, 2 SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHERS plus GREATER and LESSER YELLOWLEGS, mostly the latter, SOLITARY SANDPIPER and some SEMIPALMATED and LEAST SANDPIPERS. Unfortunately these conditions will be short lived as the refilling of the reservoir is imminent. A good place to park to view the reservoir is near the intersection of Webb Avenue and Reservoir Avenue.

Three MARBLED GODWITS were still noted at Cupsogue County Park in West Hampton Dunes yesterday and a WHIMBREL was out in Jamaica Bay last Saturday.

A GULL-BILLED TERN visited Brooklyn's Plumb Beach last Sunday and on Thursday 2 CASPIAN TERNS flying by Floyd Bennett Field were likely the 2 seen a little later at Plumb Beach.

A RED-HEADED WOODPECKER was spotted Monday at Rockefeller State Park in central Westchester County and a BLUE GROSBEAK was seen again around the Calverton Grasslands on Monday.

To phone in reports on Long Island call Tony Lauro at (631) 734-4126 or call Tom Burke at (914) 967-4922.

This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the National Audubon Society. Thank you for calling.

Subject: Wilson’s Phalarope - Jerome Reservoir 8/16 (Bronx Co)
Date: Fri Aug 16 2019 17:58 pm
From: bnf25 AT cornell.edu
 
One phalarope still being seen as of 6:30 along the southern edge of the reservoir, near the terminus of University Pl. It has been following yellowlegs around the middle sections of the flats. One Pectoral was well hidden near University Pl as well. Did not see any White-rumped or dowitchers.
Street parking is available along the western and southern sides of the reservoir, but not the eastern. There is a tall fence around the perimeter and no close approach. A scope is required for all but the closest birds. Also one of the local kestrels flew over.

Subject: Prothonotary Warbler, Central Park, NYC 8/16
Date: Fri Aug 16 2019 14:31 pm
From: tomfi2 AT earthlink.net
 
Friday, 16th August, 2019 
Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City -

A bright (apparent male) Prothonotary Warbler has been found (& photographed, by J. Suzuki) at The Pond, in Central Park™s southeast quadrant & corner. The sighting at least as first-discovered was around the waterfall feature, which is at the Pond™s west edge, nearer to the Sixth Ave. entrance to the park, north of Central Park South. This, to my knowledge, is the first of this species reported with documentation for the fall (2nd half of year) migration in New York County (for 2019). Be aware that with this species & at that location, it is possible an individual Prothonotary might move all about the waters™ edges, or interior woods nearby, & could at times be feeding or moving in fairly inaccessible areas; however, much of the Pond and its™ perimeter is visible from encircling paths, along with the usual many park-users of that area.

In addition, at least 14 (perhaps more) species of other American warblers have been found in Central Park, thru all of the park for Friday 8/16. There are also some Empidonax flyctachers, all or most of which appear to be, or are (if heard) Willow, or Willow-Alder-type, sometimes called Traill™s Flyctachers, these, esp. Willow, being still the likeliest of migrant Empidonax for this mid-Aug. time-frame in this area. There™s a report of an Olive-sided Flycatcher as well, and many have been finding E. Kingbirds on the move, some in locations not adjacent to where they nested - including parts of Manhattan & the outlying isles & on watches for diurnal migrants, as that latter species often is. Various additional migrants have shown up & the migration movement region-wide over the past few days & nights has been good, whatever the local winds, rain-storms, etc. have brought in weather. Many, many migrants have been & still are moving steadily southbound, which means both departure of some - & fresh arrivals of ˜new™ birds in the region.

Thanks to J. Suzuki for the special report, & to all who quietly observe & discover in our parks & greenspaces.

Good birding,

Tom Fiore

Greetings, Birders!
North Branch Nature Center next door in Vermont is leading a birding trip toPanamathis January 10-19. During this trip, clouds of feuding hummingbirds will whiz around your head while you ponder the meaning of life in the bedazzling tail of a Resplendant Quetzal. Discover more kinds of tanagers and toucans than ought to rationally coexist. What else? Meet a monkey. Gawk at jungle waterfalls. Improve your nature photography. Drink the best coffee you've ever had. Fill your notebook with a bird list 400 species strong.
Joining us as our in-country leader will be one of Panama's premier birding guides, Kilo Campos. All of our trips support sustainable ecotoursim internationally, and youth nature education right here in the northeast. We've got three spaces left on this trip, and we hope you'll join us!
Full details and itinerary at:

Subject: Bronx County (N.Y. City) Wilson's Phalarope records (older, relevant to new)
Date: Fri Aug 16 2019 6:11 am
From: tomfi2 AT earthlink.net
 
Regarding recent sightings & reports of Bronx County (N.Y. City) waders (a.k.a. shorebirds to many Americans) -

With the interest & excitement of such a fine showing of shorebirds in even the northern realms of N.Y. City, & as exemplified by keen birders getting out & finding them -& including much-less-expected species for some locations- I was interested to hear from the ˜dean™ among living Bronx County birders and ornithologists, who happens to be the first author of the recent work (and intensive, serious studies done over many decades), Urban Ornithology - Paul A. Buckley - and was fortunate to hear directly from him on the very recent discovery of Wilson™s Phalarope for Bronx County - and as some of us very-local ˜loyalists will also delightedly point out, a fine, newest WEST-Bronx record of that phalarope species, at that! (There is a mostly hyper-local & fun-spirited century-long relationship of east vs. west Bronx bird-finds and records, with the divide often being drawn as east of Bronx River, or west of that river.) The Jerome Park Reservoir of Bronx County, N.Y. City is in the western half of that county, by any definitions.

As P.A. Buckley noted to me, and as documented (notably, not in eBird's historical records, it seems, and that is not a unique situation for many records older or not-so-old, in that forum™s world-wide data-base - all data systems have some parts where a lack of info. is part of the system):

there are at least a few older records for Wilson™s Phalarope in Bronx County, N.Y. City - these include 2 records in 1924, at the Bronx zoo grounds (which is still a wonderful place to see & to look for all manner of migrants & in any & all seasons) and at Hunts Point (which is best-known or was, as the entire city of New York™s terminal for fresh produce, & much more of all manner of commercial & some industrial uses; there are also some parcels of habitat, including waterfront, which potentially could see migrants & visting birds at any season even today; there are some small public parks & green-spaces there as well); and:

also records for Wilson™s Phalarope exist from the 1950™s & 1960™s in an area known as Baxter™s Creek, Bronx. This points to the current-latest sightings of Wilson™s Phalarope for the Bronx, at the Jerome Park Reservoir, as being perhaps the first in about a half-century.

Well-done, Patrick Horan. This is another in the long & fine history of serious & dedicated Bronx-birders, who have shown what can be learned & seen in that county, during -and since !!- the days of the renowned Bronx County Bird Club & its many illustrious & accomplished memebers over the years. He is in a tradition, and is helping to show what keen, serious field-work means to the local study of birds and their movements - and may many more also be such a fine exemplar.

And, yes - there are established records as well for the other 2 species of Phalarope (Red, & Red-necked) in Bronx County, N.Y. City (and these, or some of these, may be stored in eBird.)

With absolutely no stakes, financial or otherwise, I heartily recommend all N.Y. birders and also birders world-wide to take a look at Urban Ornithology - P.A. Buckley & others, authors - as published by Cornell University Press, & now also available in many fine school / university libraries, research instititutions, & perhaps your local library. (And if not, inquire - they may be able to find it & order it in.) This book is no 'fast & easy™ quick read, it is serious scholarship, & goes into much detail with points that touch on birds & birding, & more generally, history / ecology, & more, which is of interest to those who not only study birds for a living but also or for their pleasure & enlightenment.

In terms of local - state - or any sorts of bird records (& for much else recorded in nature & in history) it is also always good to keep in mind the fantastic resources of our superb museums, such as in New York City the American Museum of Natural History, & many others, the State Museum of New York in Albany as (just one other of) another example, as well as many great University and College or other schools and institutution™s collections, records, libraries, & further resources which are priceless storehouses & also often highly active in research, both in the field & in the lab, & beyond, in considering any researching, record-requesting, knowledge-increasing endeavors of the avian- or other-studies sorts. There may also be some private holdings of many kinds that will welcome serious researchers & students to peruse collections, or to make inquiries. A lot can be gleaned on-line, however much also is available equally in seeking information via some of these original sources, & some of those many sources can lead to great and serious study and further knowledge.These bases of knowledge also are compatible - and often may be linked.

Good bird-finding & local-study,

Tom Fiore

Subject: Jamaica Bay East pond shore?
Date: Thu Aug 15 2019 20:29 pm
From: birdingdude AT gmail.com
 
The latest update I had from NPS was that the pond level was still quite high.
If there are any flats opening up, my guess is that it would be on the south end but not by much, given the water mark level that was shared with me.
Quite a shame that the East Pond is not ready for the shorebird season.

Can someone let us know by tomorrow the level of water or rather the amount of shore available for shorebirds and locations (North and South) of the East Pond at Jamaica Bay NWR. We are interested in the Jamaica Bay shorebird festival on Saturday.

All,


I wonder what is moving and how common this is. I will have to look at some archive data but I bet this is a normal occurrence. I wonder what types of birds: swallows, swifts, nighthawks, icterids, waterfowl, cranes....???

From: patrickhoran AT optonline.net
 
While counting shorebirds in the Jerome park reservoir I happened too find 2 Wilson's phalaropes spinning up lunch in the pool close too webb avenue and reservoir avenue.Theres a good variety and great numbers of different shorebirds that have been coming through recently feeding on worms,and large from dragonflies and mosquito's. Scope would be useful but not necessary.i believe there a bronx county first and since have been viewed by other's                                             Patrick horan                      Bronx n.y.Sent from my Samsung Galaxy smartphone.

Date: Wed Aug 14 2019 9:46 am
From: kvr2 AT cornell.edu
 
It would be great to know if diurnal migration of aerial insectivores can be reliably tracked “ not just at the roosts.

I had quite a few Bobolinks over the house mid-morning today (flight calls) “ could also be making up part of the diurnal movement.

If you look at the national radar loop there is massive diurnal migration going on from the central and southern Plains to the deep south. It is impressive. Echoes are especially heavy in the central Plains and mid Mississippi Valley. see: https://radar.weather.gov/ridg...

Looking at the loop from last night, the reflectivities just about totally petered out at 6 AM, but then picked up again. That would seem to favor diurnal migration rather than a continuation of that from overnight.

The radar imagery from NWS Binghamton continues to show what looks to be bird migration well after sunrise. As of this writing it is 1000 am and we are still picking up biological targets. Since the lower atmosphere's thermals haven't begun, it is likely these targets are not insects. Could this be shorebird migration continuing past sunrise? Or maybe songbirds just continuing from the night? I wish I didn't have to work today...

Yes I did a long loop and noticed that too. The heights of the echoes are roughly between 1000 and 4000 feet above ground level. Swallows, icterids, and what else?

Subject: Bridled Tern continues on Great Gull I., Suffolk Co.
Date: Tue Aug 13 2019 16:49 pm
From: jdicost AT nyc.rr.com
 
At about 5:30 pm I spotted the Bridled Tern flying off the north side of Great Gull Island somewhat east of the center of the island. Numbers of the breeding Common and Roseate terns have been dropping sharply in the last couple of weeks, but migrant terns have been increasing.  Individual juvenile Forster™s Terns have been around for about a week and this afternoon a juvenile Black Tern dropped in to make it a five tern day.

Taking the walkway up to the fisherman's path not far from the main parking lot at Caumsett State Park four Bobolinks of female type and possible hatch year males were seen in the bushy fields. Not far from the white buildings by the bathrooms, but along the other side of that building as you walk towards the fisherman's trail path. Quite a few Red-winged Blackbirds and two or three Eastern Kingbirds were in the immediate area sharing that territory -Kev

Subject: Interesting Red-tail at Croton Point Park (Westchester County)
Date: Mon Aug 12 2019 8:32 am
From: rfermat AT yahoo.com
 
Yesterday afternoon I encountered a new adult Red-tail at Croton Point. It seems to be either the Western race calurus or the northern Canadian abieticola. I'm using this article for reference:

The bird was strikingly rufous with an a large dark belly band with tear shaped marks, and extensive flank marks. I'll post some photos soon to the New York Birders facebook page.

Subject: Brooklyn - White-winged Dove & Morning Flight
Date: Sun Aug 11 2019 17:11 pm
From: fresha2411 AT gmail.com
 
Another night of favorable migration winds led to yet another morning vigil at Coney Island Creek Park monitoring the visible migration. It was similar in many ways to yesterday, with the clear blue skies making high warblers calling overhead virtually impossible to see, and varying numbers of icterids (more than yesterday), kingbirds (fewer), swallows, and swifts (fewer) moving as well.
The distinct highlight was a WHITE-WINGED DOVE that was in view for a minute or so as it flew over Sea Gate to my southwest. It made a couple of high loops (seemingly trying to decide what to do once it came to the end of the land) before I lost sight of it.This is only the 2nd record of the species for Brooklyn, despite its essentially annual appearances on the outer barrier beaches of Long Island.
Other notable differences between today and yesterday were the arrival of numbers of Blue-gray Gnatcatchers (14 this morning, after detecting 0 yesterday), an uptick in Waterthrushes, and an Empidonax flycatcher that looked to me to be a Willow, which would be perhaps the most expected species here given the date.
