Today, between a voice lesson and a piano gig, I birded Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx and found a very fun variety of (mainly passerine) migrants.
EASTERN PHOEBE atop a lion:
Closer look at the bird:
It was an ominous place to bird considering it’s just three days before Halloween, but it was beautiful and refreshingly quiet compared to the craziness of Manhattan.
This PALM WARBLER posed oh so nicely for me just a couple of feet away, allowing for these close-ups:
Beautiful fall foliage:
When this MERLIN falcon flew into the vicinity, all of the songbirds like the above kinglets dispersed and the area fell dead silent. Very cool to observe.
Bird-of-the-day to the photogenic Palm Warbler with runner-up to the Merlin, which is always a nice find. Stay tuned and happy birding!
