This is awesome! I love birding! I know this post is a few weeks old, but migration is now in full swing. In New York, the real birding hotspots are urban parks. The migrating warblers come up the Atlantic Flyway and see big patches of green in New York City and layover. And its popping now, 10-15 species of warbler daily. A couple days ago I stopped in the park before work and a palm warbler hopped down on the grass in front of me and flitted around for like 5 minutes – just dancing and saying hello. It was magic.

Oh how I love to hear the barred owls in the evening. I see them once in a while.Jun 7, 2017 at 10:12 am #3472120jscottBPL Member

there’s a shady zone near water on a local walk that I do that’s filled with flying insects right now. some wonderful singer is always voicing when I stroll through this area. Her song is long and complex. Too much greenery to see her so I don’t know the species.Jun 7, 2017 at 10:23 am #3472121Ethan A.BPL Member

Jeffrey could it be the Red-Winged Blackbird? https://youtu.be/q3QicOAiBXk
They are often near water and sing a beautiful complex song that’s one of my favorite spring sounds.
Kat nice Kestrel photos. Quite the hunters for the weight.
Careful, birding is addictive and there are a whole lotta birds out there.
