Bald Eagle at Bush Terminal Pier Park ( under construction); Prospect EAME & VESP

This post normally would not qualify under my "north Brooklyn" requirement but I will make an exception here due to the exciting potential of this new park I have been inside to advise an environmental activist friend on the Osprey platform there.

These Bald Eagle photos were taken by Mamdouh Elbahary,a
Senior Project Scientist with the company building the roughly 65 acre park looking out into NYC Harbor. The photos were taken October 6th & 7th. Pretty cool, huh ?


Today 10/27

Back on the home turf, during my lunchtime "dash" in this cold soaking rain, in Prospect Park, a second EASTERN MEADOWLARK join yesterday's EAME before one of them flew out just as I was looking at a VESPER SPARROW (VESP) perched on the northwest side snow fence of the reknown baseball fields fence enclosure. The VESP would fly down to bare area on the lawn to feed. Many PALM WARBLERS were seen along with DE JUNCO, SONG, SAVANNAH ,and CHIPPING Sparrows before I made haste back to the Tennis House office.

Not a nice day today with the cold bone chilling rain.
