Brooklyn Botanic Garden November 25th

From Eni Falci:

Hi Peter-

Went through the BBG today and had some good bird sightings. Highlights were the juvenile Baltimore oriole bathing in the kettle hole in the native garden. (probably same bird as seen in the Vale previously). A brief view of a late nashville warbler near the new herb garden (grey head, white eye ring and yellow breast). Finally 4 cedar waxwings few over toward the lawn on Eastern Parkway.
