Warbler Fix in Forest Park Queens NY...

Forest Park in Queens NY has been very good for the past week or so. Despite the sometimes puzzling waterhole effect, birds are in the park and I have now gotten 20+ species of warbler 3 times this season already. Today, I spent most of my day at the Forest Park Waterhole only taking a break once. I tried to do hourly counts to get a feel of the "lull" times in order to get a better picture to compare the data to years past. Here are some photos that I managed from today.

Cape May Warbler

Canada Warbler

Chestnut-sided Warbler

Worm-eating Warbler

Waterhole was teeming with warblers this morning. Bay-breasted Warbler, Scarlet Tanager and Blackburnian Warbler appeared just to name a few.

Love your blog, Andrew. Thanks for the always interesting writing and amazing photos.

I bird mostly in Central Park (closest good area to where I live), but I love coming here and being reminded of all the other great places in the area I still have to explore.

Thanks for that!


Thanks folks for the kind words. It takes time and effort, so words of encouragement are always welcomed!
