Prospect November 13th

Back from a few days in the Jersey Pine Barrens (birds , inc 5 Bald Eagles,Snow Geese in Brigantine NWR , 100+ Cedar Waxwings in an Atlantic Cedar grove and perimeter ; leaf peeping for colorful fall foliage) , here are today's Prospect's birding reports including ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER:

From Adam :

Hi All

At about 3pm this afternoon I was taking a walk with Sarah in the Park

and she spotted a warbler-like bird that she didn't recognize. I got

on to it and we had a bunch of really good views of my first

Orange-crowned Warbler for this year, halfway between the Wellhouse

and the BBQ area near the south end of Lookout. Gray head, very slim

eye-ring, fainly blotchy/streaked olivey breast, paler greenish-yellow

vent, etc. etc.

What a way to be welcomed back to NYC! (I got back yesterday from Kenya.)




From Kathy

There were very few birds today. Most of the birds we did see were on

Breeze Hill. We got only a very brief look at the turkey vulture,

flying over.
